Brief Answer:
Picture is necessary to give good answer.

Detailed Answer:
Hello!

Thank you for the query.

Can you please attach a photo of it. Otherwise it will be extremely hard to give valuable answer. Do you shave this area? Since when do you have this nodules?

Nodules in this location, aside from HPV condylomata, can be hair follicle inflammation, ingrown hair, allergic reaction, fungal infection and many more.
For sure nodules which stay unchanged for some time, do not hurt, no discharge, redness, are nothing serious.

This is the best I can tell not being able to see it. Please attach a picture if thats possible.

Regards.
