Hi there. Board-certified obgyn here.

May I ask how old you are?
Do you shave?

Are you up to date on your pap smear?

Where were the bumps exactly?

on the clitoral hood on the left side of the clitoris

Thank you.

We do have something on the skin there called "sebaceous glands" which are basically clusters of cells that produce waxy secretions that become our natural lubrication. If one of these glands gets blocked off, you can get a little collection of secretions under the skin that then feel like a bump. These bumps can come and go and the warm compresses can help them resolve.

Based on your description it does not sound like herpes (which tends to be painful) or genital warts (which do not tend to resolve very quickly).

All of that being said, it's a good idea to get checked out and it sounds like you're due for you pap anyway, but I wouldn't say it's an emergency.

What other Qs do you have for me?

Thank you do much I put a hot water compress, tea tree oil, and hydrocortizone it and that have went down is that safe to continue to do?

I would skip the tea tree oil as direct contact to the skin may cause irritation. I'd also skip the hydrocortisone as this is typically used for allergic reaction and skin irritation. A warm water compress alone should do the trick and you can use it 2-3 times/day and just keep it on the area until the washcloth cools.

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.
