Hello, I have developed an irritation in my vulva where I have noticed tiny red bumps along the wall. I have also seen them, what I believe is to be my cervix. I am in a monogamous, 2 year relationship and I am just now getting over my period, to which I wear tampons for. This is the first time I have developed this. What do you think this could be?

Not herpes, warts and not infection, they have been there for several years. A sex expert on TV said they are called pearly papules , harmless and won t go away but not to mess with them. I d love to see them gone. Is there anything I can do?

I have a few dark flesh colored bumps on my lower labia majora. They don t itch or puss but if I rub to hard when using the bathroom or showering they become tender. I recently stopped shaving down there to see if its due to ingrown hair but I can t really see to tell if it is or not due to the location and color.

The skin on my labia is rough and shows small, close together light bumps. The bumpy area goes from just outside of my inner vaginal lips to a bit inside of my vagina. It s been this way for a few years, starting as only a small string of little dots on the labia. It started at a time when I was not sexually active, nor had I been yet. It itches often and I have thick, white, sometimes smelly discharge. I m worried that I may have something.
