Try this:

Wash really well with soap and water, and then apply hot compresses (a clean washcloth soaked in very hot water) to your vaginal lips. By "very hot" I don't mean boiling... you should be able to put your hand in the water.

This certainly won't hurt anything, and if they are pimples, can help them pop. But you should also know that having very shallow, almost white bumps on your labia, along the hairline, is totally normal. Those will usually extend quite far back, and not be just one or two, but many.

If they're not these normal bumps, and they don't seem to be pimples or ingrown hairs because they won't pop, you should make an appointment to see a healthcare practitioner and get them checked out.

Hope this helps,
