Due to blocked gland.
Thanks for trusting us with your health concern.
The small hard white head pimples
that you have on your labia minora
is due to clogging up of the sebaceous glands that leads to formation of small lumps.
It can happen due to:
Moistness getting collected there
Presence of many oil secreting glands
The increase in size of one of those is due to collection of secretions inside it. Since it is not painful infection is not likely.
Such pimples go away on their own. Since, it is symptomless, there is nothing to worry.
Squeezing or scratching these; shaving; wearing non cotton undergarments can aggravate these and may cause infection.
If the pimple is painful, it may be tense due to the pus collected inside. To ease this tension, try warm compress over it to soften the overlying skin. Slowly, the pimple would start draining.
As such it is benign and a harmless swelling. In case you are concerned regarding the size you can get it surgically removed after consulting your gynecologist.
Please feel free to discuss further. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Wishing you good health.
