bumps on my vagina lip that hurt!

i've been getting bumps on my Vagina lip & they hurt very bad! they sort of look like boils. they come & they go, sometimes i pop them, & a white clear liquid comes out, & blood also comes out. I've had them for a while now, I know I don't have STDS,
but i just need help! I wanna know what these bumps are, & why i'm getting them.

Hi!
If the bumps are occuring in the part of your anatomy that normally has pubic hair, they may be boils.  This is especially common if you shave those areas.  I often try a topical antibiotic first, and sometimes an oral antibiotic second for patients who suffer from these little infections.  They are often reffered to as folliculitis--because they are infections of the hair follicles. I use Cleocin T 2%, which sometimes helps enough.

There is also a condition called hydradenitis in which sweat glands become infected. This typically happens in the groin and underarm areas.  A dermatologist would be your best bet as far as a doctor to treat that condition, which is chronic and hereditary.

Hope this helps!
