I have a recurring bumps near my vagina or my vagina lips. Does anyone know what this

Resolved Question:

The bumps always come one at a time. They are never open. Actually feel more like lumps. They hurt when touched. I think they are ingrown hairs because when I shave down there they usually go away. Does anyone know what this might be?

Difficult to be certain without an exam but folliculitis ( inflamed hair follicles) can be a problem on this area if you shave.

This often responds well to an antibiotic such as flucloxacillin.

You either need to be examined or post a close up pic of one or two of the spots if you need a more accurate answer. ( you can use the tree icon if you wish to post an image)
