Question: On my labia minor I have noticed two redder spots that everything else down there, unless the skin is pulled you would never noticed them. I can't get a good picture of this, Im wondering if its irritation from underwear /hair since my labia sticks out a bit

nothing is painful or raised is looks like a very small drop of blood not bothersome just curious

Brief Answer:
Irritated hair follicle likely.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for trusting us with your health concern.
The two red painless spots that you have on labia are likely to be irritated hair follicles. It is a harmless finding and is likely to subside on its own in few days. Just avoid touching it repeatedly to avoid any infection in the area.
Please feel free to discuss further. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Wishing you good health.
Regards.
