yes, there are glands all over the surface of the labia, near the clitoris and the entrance to the vagina. They make secretions to keep the tissue supple and flexible..
So, where are glands, there also can be inflammation when the glands get clogged.

How do the glands get unclogged? I am concerned that I have some pressure in that area.
Expert:  Dr. Cameron replied 5 years ago.
well, you can apply a warm compress to the area, or better yet, you can sit in a warm bath. This will help the material come to a head and come out. Most of the time these just resolve on their own
If this does not work and if it gets more red and painful, you may need to see a doctor. Sometimes we have to drain these (I have done this a number of times)
