What causes STD and moles?

I have a couple moles/freckles on my outer labia that were not there previously. One is kind of a wine color mole (raised and round) while the other one is a red brown color. Are these moles? Std? or what? Have not exposed privates to sun at all and they are recent. I do tend to have a lot of moles and freckles on my back and skin overall, but never down there before.

Dermatologist 's  Response
Hello. Thanks for writing to us at healthcaremagic

I will keep a possibility of Angiokeratoma rather than moles Or an STD.
They are fragile, red to bluish colored specks most commonly on the scrotum in males and outer labia in females
Angiokeratomas are composed of dilated capillaries and are asymptomatic except that trauma usually induces profuse bleeding.
They can be either left alone, however, if bleeding becomes a concern and if treatment is desired for cosmetic reasons they can be cauterized with an electrocautery machine Or with a Co 2 Laser.
I would suggest that you visit a dermatologist in your region for the needful.
