See a gynecologist: New growths on the vulvar area are never normal. These may be allergic, due to pad contact during menses. Any common skin conditions benign and cancerous occur in this area. It will not help to look in Google or use over the counter medications without establishing the diagnosis first. A gynecologist have deep knowledge of this area. Dermatologist in general do not manage skin in this area.

Varicose veins: I wonder if you are seeing a varicose vein. I have heard patients describe them as worm like. You will need to show an Obgyn what you are seeing so they can make an official diagnosis. If it is a varicose vein they are not harmful. Consider a virtual visit on healthtap if you do have access to a doctor near you.
