Does anyone else get these bumps down there?

For the past maybe 6 years every so often I get bumps down there. There not on the inside, always on the outside and sometimes theres just 1 sometimes theres up to 3-4 in different places. Most of the time they don't hurt but sometimes they're very painful. They don't look like sores and theyre not red. They're just smooth bumps. It's not herpes...I've asked 4 different doctors and theyve all told me they're just swollen glands that sometimes probably get infected but Ive never run into anyone else with this problem and I can't find any info on it.

  • The only reason I get that is from shaving... but I do have these bumps under the skin in the outer lips of my vagina. They've been there as long as I can remember, they're hard and under the skin, tons of them. They don't pop or anything, it's weird...

  • The first thing that came to my mind was vaginal warts but a dr would recognize that. From what I've read about them they're not painful and sometimes different numbers of them pop up.
    Is it after you shave? More when you're hot and sweaty? (corn start brushed on with a blush brush works wonders on keeping heat rash away, not inside vaginal areas but where legs meet pelvis area where panty line is).
    I've had bump looking things right at the opening of my vagina but that was from low estrogen.
    Guess if the dr doesn't see a problem there isn't one tho but I'd be freaking out till I found out what caused it and why and what to do to stop it if it's not from shaving.

  • I get the same things-there lighter or darker than your skin tone, could be one, could be 5 and they ALMOST look like a zit?
    My doctor said its just fatty lumps-tiny little fatty lumps water is pushing to the serface of my skin cauing a slight irratation, sometimes it take two weeks for them to go away, but they always do, I notice my hurt more when I shave or when its REALLY hot or humid out side.
