Hello,I am Dr. Aren and I will help with your query.There are two possibilities possible ,one is that of Angiokeratoma.THese are harmless ,surface vascular markings which may arise sporadically,may be single or multiple upto a 100 lesions on the vulva.Nothing needs to be done ,they may bleed if rubbed hard.

The other possibility is of Lichen Planus which are usually harmless.

It is actually very difficult to comment in detail without examining you .You will need to rule out Genital warts,herpes and folliculitis.
