Genital Pimples?

This sounds really gross, but occasionally I get small zit type things on my vagina. They are never on the inside, always on the outer lips or close to where the inner ones begin. I know I don't have an STD as I've never had sex, but it freaks me out and I want to know what they are. I think they're harmless, does anyone know?

What it could be is if you often shave in that spot, they could be small irritated ingrown hairs

it could be from shaving , have you ever tried waxing,,it hurts like he!! but gets the hair down to the roots, its a tad expensive,,,or you could try Nair its a creme that removes hair

I have a few, I believed it was a pimple or in grown hair. If you are not sexually active then I wouldnt worry to much. Give it some time and it should go away. It took a few weeks to a month for mine to go away. And yes you can get wax at grocery stores. Get some vitamin E to put on after.
