Welcome to ehealthforum,
It is difficult to comment on the bumps that you describe (on vaginal lips/labia) without examining them. The exact cause can only be made out after thorough and careful evaluation. Do not delay in visiting your gynecologist for further evaluation and assistance. Treatment as appropriate (based on the examination findings and investigation results) would be started to help you. Consider being in regular follow-up and monitoring of your treating gynecologist and report any abnormal/new symptoms immediately. Avoid any self-manipulation. Take adequate rest. Drink plenty of water. Maintain healthy diet and lifestyle. Avoid vaginal douching, use of harsh soap or perfumes in the area. Use loose cotton undergarments and avoid use of tight fitting clothes. If infective cause is detected, and if you are sexually active, get your partner also treated simultaneously to prevent chances of re-infection.
Take care.
