Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

It could be genital warts.
As a first line of management you can apply salicylate ointments which act as keratolytic and resolve the bumps in couple of weeks. If it doesn’t work or recurrence is there, it is better to consult a dermatologist and get evaluated. You can either go for cauterisation or laser therapy depending upon the stage.

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