Welcome to ehealthforum.
The dark purple/black bumps on the vaginal lips could be indicative of infection. Do not hesitate to visit your gynecologist for an examination to find out what could be causing them. Another possibility could be genital freckles.
Early recognition of the problem will help you to get it resolved soon and without complications (in case they are due to infections).
i believe i have the same thing on the outside of my labia,
i have 3 small dark reddish/ purple/ black dots, they don't hurt at all, don't itch, no discomfort, they're just there and i'm afraid of what they might be.
the sizes are about, well two of them are about 1mm and one actually got larger then before is now about 3mm.
please help me, im very worried.
I have one on the right side, it is painful and it bleeds. It is not very small and is purple/black. Some say it is a Bartholin's gland cyst, but those say they are painless. Mine reduced a ton in size after popping and draining it, I also am keeping it covered to keep out infection and am cleaning it regularly. WHAT IS IT?
