Hello there.

I feel you are having genital warts. These occur due to Human Papilloma virus infection (HPV).

Genital warts are growths on your skin that look like tiny bumps. They are usually around the vagina, anus or on the inside of the thigh.
They may be raised or flat, small or large. There can be only one wart or more than one in the same area like a cauliflower.
Warts can be pink or flesh colored, red or brown.
They are usually painless, though they may occasionally itch, burn, or bleed.

If left untreated, visible genital warts can resolve on their own, remain unchanged, or increase in size or number.

Available therapies for genital warts likely reduce, but probably do not eradicate.

There is low risk for warts on the larynx (recurrent respiratory papillomatosis) in the babies born to mothers with genital warts.

All genital warts do not require treatment in pregnancy. Only if there are chances of them bleeding or if they get painful, then they require treatment which is usually given locally.
All drugs cannot be used.

You should consult a gynecologist . The diagnosis of genital warts is mainly by clinical examination.

Take care.
