What causes bumps on labia minora?

hi i m maria, i observed that in my labia minora has bumps on it. i noticed that after wearing tight underwear my genital became itchy and now i noticed bumps. but they do not look like cauliflower bumps.i am a virgin but i had been fingered by my boyfriend. i tried applying vinegar on the bumps but i cannot distinguish if it turned white or not and seemed like there was only discoloration on the whole area i applied vinegar on. i tried to touch the bumps and it seemed like i can hold one bump. i was searching online and i saw similar pictures with Vestibular papillae but i m still not assured if it can still be genital warts. my partner has no sign of genital warts and he washes his hands before doing something to me.pls help me what is this bump on my genital?

Hello,

The bumps on labia minora can be related to infections like herpes or just vulvovaginitis. A direct examination and a vaginal smear can help in the proper diagnosis. The treatment will then depend on the cause.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
Dr Rakhi Tayal, OBGYN

I have this itching & irritation on my labia minora. There are also these tiny little bumps there kind of rash like. When i go to the bathroom & urine hits my labia it stings sometimes. I had no disharge but i thought it was a yeast infection so i used monistat which helped with the irritation & itching. I went to my gyno she didn t notice any discharge or anything abnormal she advised me to continue using the monistat. The monistat seem to only help for a while. Then started having discharge that was clear & water like, no smell. Then later i noticed a really faint yellow discharge. Called my gyno she said it still sounds like a yeast infection but the monistat may not have been strong enough. I was prescribed fluconazole. Took the 1st dose then 3 days later i was to take the 2nd dose. I ve taken the 2nd dose today & i dont really see any improvement in my symptoms. Idk what s going on & I m getting really scared. Everytime i research my symptoms i seem to get herpes as the answers :( ....Is it herpes or some kind of bacterial infection?? I m losing my mind here
