swollen, bleeding vulva

Two swollen areas on my vulva. They look like blood blisters. One of them actually bleeds a little and the blood looks like it may be slightly pus-y though I'm not sure if that wasn't just due to where the blood was coming from.. I put Neosporin on them after my shower. Have recently become very sexually active (monogamously) and wondered if the added frequency could cause this. They don't hurt really. Color is normal around the vaginal area and there is no discharge or odor. Any thoughts?

Added frequency could definitely cause it.  Check out "Skene's gland" and also "Bartholin's gland". It's more likely the first. These glands can become infected when starting up having sex. Soaking in a warm bath can help them drain.Good luck.

Thank you! I looked up Skene's gland and that seems to be it.
