This may sound really gross but I have gotten some strange bumps now and then around my labia that are there for a little while, but then go away. So sick, but I squeezed one once and some puss came out, but after squeezing another one, nothing happened. I am a virgin and am not sexually active, I've never been fingered or anything. Does anyone have an explanation for this?

Are these on the inner labia or outer labia?

Okay.

Then the MOST likely culprit if you've never been at all sexually active? Is plain old pimples or infected pores. And when you squeeze those, you actually spread bacteria, which may be why these keep corpping up for you.

So, for now, STOP squeezing. Leave'em. If you want to help them go away faster, you can use hot compresses on them and a simple topical antibiotic like neosporin, so long as you don't get it on your inner labia or around your vaginal opening. You can also just be sure you're not wering tight pants all the time or polyesters all the time.

If in a couple months of treating them that way, they're still cropping up big-time, then go ahead and have a visit with a gynecologist so they can find out what's going on, but I see no reason to rush right now, because I'm betting you're just dealing with a normal skin disturbance.
