Hi,
Welcome to ehealthforum,
If you were at the receiving end of oral sex performed by infected person, then chances of developing genital warts are possible. The vaginal bumps that you describe could be due to causes like folliculitis, sebaceous cyst, blocked paraurethral gland ducts, infected/blocked Bartholin’s gland duct, etc. The exact cause can only be made out after careful evaluation done by your doctor/gynecologist. Treatment as appropriate (based on examination findings and investigations results) would be started to help you control the symptoms. Consider being in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest. Maintain healthy diet and lifestyle. Avoid vaginal douching, or use of harsh soap or perfumes in the area. Use loose cotton undergarments and avoid use of tight fitting clothes. Avoid sweat accumulation. Keep area clean and dry.
Take care.
