It's pretty normal to have tiny bumps on the skin of your vulva - the skin around there sometimes has a "grainy" texture. However, if they seem sore or inflamed or if you're worried about them, getting them checked out by a doctor would be a good idea.

I can understand why you are so scared. The only thing I know to tell you is to go to the gyno and get checked out.


Never frown even when you are sad, because you never know who is falling in love with your smile!!!

they do not hurt or itch...they are just there. im just wondering if this is normal.

Like logic_grrl said, they could be a part of your skin's normal texture, which often has a somewhat grainy feel--think of mini "chicken skin" bumps. But, they could be indicative of illness. In any case, we really can't diagnose you over the Internet! So, perhaps it's a good time to set up a gyno appointment.

This is one of the reasons it's so important to know your own body really well. Then you will know what is normal for you and what is not!

Having said that, it is normal to have bumps on your labia. Beleive me, I get about 50 Google hits a day from women concerned about dots or bumps on their labia -- it's insane.

They can be labia coloured or faintly white. (I'm talking about caucasian women here; I'm ashamed to say that I have no idea what the normal color variations would be for women who are not caucasian, or even if it would be any different.)

Occassionally, they can become infected, in which case they will rise and get kinda zit-like, and then you would want to see a health care practitioner.

Hope this helps,

Hi there,

I know it's been a while since you posted this, but I am freaking out over something very similar. If it is normal to have little bumps in your inner labia majora, why is it so hard to find good information about them? Do you have any info? I'm freaking out. my email address is {mod edit for email address}
