2 more sets of the strange looking bumps?

User Profile
Two days ago, I woke up an after showering noticed 2 bumps on my vagina in the labia area. They are very close together, and feel hard, like a mosquito bite. Today when I woke up, I have 2 more sets of the strange looking bites in the same general area. They look like mosquito bites, with skin missing in the center of the bump. Could these be spider or bug bites, or something more serious?? I dont think it could be an STD, but I'm starting to get paranoid! Advice please!

Hello and welcome to eHealth forum!

The lumps could be swollen lymph nodes, Bartholin cysts, genital warts or herpes. If you are sexually active, then take a STD test and see. These can also be boils from infection of hair follicles especially if you have diabetes or a family history of same. Hence it is important to check for diabetes too.

Please consult your gynecologist regarding this as a confirmed diagnosis is not possible on net. Hope this helps. Take care!
