One hard and large fordyce spot on the labia, remaining soft and under the skin, on periods due. Normal?

I hve fordyce spots on my labia , and I just noticed that one of them is hard on one side... it feels like a little hard tic tac, only smaller, right under the skin, and the fordyce spot is larger than the others. All of my fordyce spots are significantly larger on that side than the other, but only one has gotten hard. I am about 3-5 days from my next menstrual cycle. Is this normal or should I see a doctor?

Thanks for writing to us.
The fordyce spots are benign pigmnentation spots which do show a variation in the size with vascularity of the area. The difference ijn the size of spots is not worrisome. In case there is a sudden increase in size then it needs to be examined.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
