Tear on labia

New to the forum..not sure if this is the right place to post this, but maybe someone has experienced something similar.  4 months ago, I gave birth to a 6lb, 12oz baby.  Recently, I have noticed two small 'tears' or 'punctures' on the inner labia.  They do not hurt or itch, or feel any different than the surrounding skin, although they may be slightly reddened.  I did require some stitches after the birth, and the doctor mentioned that I had some 'skid marks' that he was going to let heal on their own.  The episiotomy site did become infected, but seems to have healed at this point, and the spots I'm questioning are pretty far from that area.  Could this be some kind of scarring or something more serious?  I did test positive for HPV during my pregnancy, but at my 6 week checkup, it was no longer active, and I've never heard of HPV presenting in this manner.  Thanks, in advance, for responses.
