Are these spots on the labia minora or majora. On the skin outside of the lining at the vaginal opening. It sounds like some veins that are normal with the progress of time.

They certainly look like tiny veins called venules. I've seen these for many years and far from folliculitis. It's normal.

Is this something that happens with age because i didn't used to have them
Expert:  Dr Ted Manos replied 2 months ago.
Age is one factor and genetics another. You have to keep checking the area for more changes or overall skin texture.
