What causes red bumps on outer side of vagina?

Well I have developed these bumbs on the outer side of my vagina. They are not genital warts because I am a virgin. They aren t gross looking either. They are red and some look like pimples. They are on my butt too a little bit. They are itchy and when i itch them they hurt. My dads girlfriend said it could be from shaving and a mixture of wearing pads. So for the last two days I have been wearing tampons but the bumps are still there and still itchy. I read some things and girls said pads are causing them to have like chemical burn, but these loads haven t ever bothered me this much. So I don t know what it is or what to do. What do you think?

Hello,

I think this bumps probably are infected hair follicles. They are caused by shaving. You can use an antibiotic ointment over them to help them heal. Also, don't shave it for some time in order to help it heal.

Hope I have answered the question. Let me know if I can assist you further.
