I was looking at my vagina the other day and noticed tiny white bumps on the inner lips of my vagina. My vagina sometimes itches but not often. Sometimes there is more liquid like vaginal discharge in my underwear but not a lot and these bumps are just there. im not sexually active. Is there anything I need to worry about?
If they are tiny, don't hurt, you don't have an extremely large amount of them, and you aren't sexually active, then I'm 99% sure they are simply whiteheads. These are actually pretty common because the vagina has SO many sweat glands, not to mention hair follicles, and it's generally all cooped up in underwear. Wearing more breathable cotton underwear should help to reduce the amount or frequency of them. :)
I agree with Wynterchan. Sounds like what I experienced. I noticed one and showed my GYN. She said it was simply a blocked sweat gland. No need to do anything unless it bothers you. I'd ask the doctor to be sure, but I wouldn't worry.
