I have several very tiny bumps on my labia minora. Sometimes when I wear certain underwear that causes friction they become a bit more enlarged and irritated/red. Is this normal? Are these sebaceous glands? They never seem to go away.

There's definitely a chance they're normal and not harmful if you've had them for a long time, they definitely could be sebaceous glands. Unfortunately without being able to see what they look like, and of course without being medical professionals, we can't give you a definite answer. It sounds like they're causing you discomfort, though, so I do recommend you get them checked out by a doctor about reducing the irritation.
