Thanks. Is this itchy or sore? Does it feel soft or firm to touch?

It can be slightly itchy, not sore and its soft to touch. But, can feel the hair follicle bumps / forcyde on it

Ok. Your pictures and history are most suggestive of blocked oil/ sebaceous glands. You might even get more of these in future, but these are very common on the genital area and are completely harmless. There is absolutely nothing to worry about. You can leave them alone if they are not bothering you. They usually resolve on their own.

If you want to get rid of them sooner, one can try 2.5% benzoyl peroxide cream oncr a day for 4 weeks. If this does not help, the next option is to try adapalene cream, on prescription from your doctor. That should help. Adapalene cream used regularly once a day, will also prevent new ones from coming up.

If recurrent lesions are a problem, I usually prescribe accutane 20mg once daily taken for 2-3 months, which should clear them up.

Do not worry. This is not an STD.

Hope this helps. Do keep me posted & get back if you have any further questions or feel that I have missed out anything. I will be here to provide ongoing advice as necessary. Best wishes.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
