What do tiny bumps on the vagina indicate ?

Hi, sometimes an area on the top of my vagina is very itchy, I would scratch it then a small pimple like will appear, only about 3 or 2 of them. Then after a few weeks, it will get darken and peel off, but one of these pimple like has a very hard substance that will maintain hard even if you squash it. what could this be? I also found just one of these on my butt and afterwards i also got a same very hard substance. After getting that substance the skin will have a small hole then later will heal and become a scar. The substance doesn t have any smell, it has a very dark shade of brown color and it s very hard. the size will only range as big as the small ball point if a pen. Should i be worried? help please.

I have a tiny, hard bump inside my vagina, in approximately the G spot. It causes pain on intercourse. Yesterday I visited a new GYN. After a long examination , He said he does not know what the bump is. He said it is NOT an STD, Cancer, Cyst or wart. His advice was to begin Premarin twice a week. I am 59 years old. I got through menopause without taking hormones, I would prefer not to. Is the risk of the vaginal cream great? Could this be surgically removed? The Dr. indicated it is in a difficult to see area. Thank you.

They have no sensation and can only be seen with the skin is pulled taught, and with a torch and magnifying mirror.

I am eight months pregnant and have, as of two weeks ago been negative for any std s other than herpes. It has literally been years since my last outbreak, but I have noticed itching in the last two days. Upon examination tonight I discovered tiny white bumps on the outside of my vagina. There are probably around 10? What could this be?

I have red inflamed spots all over my legs in almost every hair follicle. I have been told it is folliculitis but the ointment the Dr has given me has not done anything. I am wondering if it could be a fungal issue that an over the counter product like lotrimin may help. =-
