Hi,

Fordyce's spots, or Fordyce granules are small, painless, raised,
paleorwhite spots or bumps 1 to 3 mm in diameter that may appear on
thelabia.

Thespots are a form of ectopic sebaceous gland, and are not known
tobe associatedwith any disease or illness and are of cosmetic concern only.
Theyarenon-infectious and a natural occurrence on the body.

The pain is
likelytobe a simple infection, either of the hair follicles or the skin
glandsaroundthe vulva and vagina.

This is a not uncommon problem and is
easilyclearedup but I would suggest you see your GP for an antibiotic
prescription andacheck up rather than trying anything over the counter.

If
these bumps involve hair follicles then this may be follicultis .Folliculitis
presents as red bumps with pus in their centers and they usually involve the hair
follicles.They involve areas such as the groin, the chest ,the face and the
armpits or axilla. Other differentials may be a fungal infection of the
folliculitis type.Some fungal infections may present as bumps on the skin almost
like folliculitis.

If the bumps are found within the walls of the vagina near
the orifice or vaginal opening ,then a bartholin cyst may be considered. “A
Bartholin’s gland cyst is a swollen fluid-filled lump that develops from a
blockage of one of the Bartholin's glands, which are small glands located on each
side of the opening to the vagina."

Let us know if
you need any other
information and post us on how you are doing.

Regards.
