Not being doctors, we cannot tell you what those bumps might be from. But when you notice strange bumps, it is always a good idea to have them checked out by a doctor to get a diagnosis.

Diamond,

I noticed that you've had a lot of concerns with your body lately. Since you're now back in school, do you have a campus health service? If so, I'd suggest making an appointment with them, asking for a female doctor if that is something that would make you more comfortable. Write a list for the doctor of all the concerns you've had over the past few weeks and give it to her at the start of your appointment. This way, you can have her address all your worries and troubles.

You've mentioned before that you have health insurance through your parents. Your health insurance should be applied to your school healthcare system, as made clear by your school's policies.

Alternately, there is also a Planned Parenthood branch near your school's campus (based on your IP address when at school). Here is the information on it: http://www.plannedparenthood.org/health-center/centerDetails.asp?f=2927

Planned Parenthood can be used for most sexual healthcare. They not only have a sliding scale for people with no insurance, but for what your insurance won't cover, if it won't cover the services you need.

That all said, you recently had a very thorough sexual health exam, so unless you have engaged in any sexual contact with anyone in the week or two since that exam, changes are what you're noticing isn't anything to be concerned about in the first place.
