Thanks for posting your query.

The bumps inside vaginal lips are most likely just the prominent vaginal glands which do feel like bumps. These are not indicative of herpes.

What you are experiencing is part of your normal anatomy and you don’t need to worry about it.
However to allay your anxiety I suggest a routine examination and counseling by a competent Gynecologist. A detailed examination can be done on a physical consultation.

Hope this answers your query. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.

Wishing you good health.

Thanks for writing again.
The presence of little white dots further confirms it to be due to prominent glands present under the labia. The white spots that you can see are the duct openings. I would like to reassure you that there is nothing that you need to worry about.
Hope this answer is helpful. Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.

Wishing you good health.
