I definitely have prominent sebaceous glands all over vulva. Is it likely that I have herpes there's too or are the bumps part of gland problem?

I have bumps on my labia minora on both sides. They don't hurt at all and are flesh colored. They look like glands do in med diagrams. Is it normal?
Swelling from labia minora has gone down and I'm fine but out of curiosity why are the glands on my labia minora swollen?
Hundreds of small, firm sebaceous cysts inside labia minora, normal? Read here from a doctor that labia minora is "supposed to have sebaceous cysts"

I have a pea sized red bump with a yellow centre on my inner labia minora. Pimple or sebaceous cyst? It popped but the yellow centre came back.
Cyst?: A recurrent lesion like this, if in the same spot each time, suggests a cyst, e.g. a blocked sebaceous or mucus gland. (You seem to ve aware of this possibility, since you selected 3 different kinds of cyst among your topic tags.) Best to see a doctor; minor surgery (opening it to drain, perhaps cautery) probably would prevent future recurrences. ...Read more
The sebaceous glands are microscopic exocrine glands in the skin that secrete an oily or waxy matter, called sebum, to lubricate and waterproof the skin and hair.
Sweat glands are small tubular structures of the skin that produce sweat. They are usually used for cooling purposes. There are two main types of sweat glands:
Eccrine and apocrine ...Read more
Yes: The apocrine sweat glands are found in the armpit. These can become infected. When infected a pustule or boil forms which is red, painful, and may eventually drain. Further evaluation is appropriate with frequent infections in the armpit as some conditions, such as hydradenitis suppurativa may cause this and can respond to certain treatments. ...Read more
Perhaps?: Sebaceous glands are present to provide oil to the skin. They are there because that is the way we are made. Occasionally we can have the plug up & cause a cyst to form. It is best to leave these alone. An skin/soft tissue infection in the genital area can be very serious. They may be unsightly but they are sterile. If you prefer removal, see a urologist, dermatologist or surgeon & b careful! ...Read more
If you are a woman, hormonal intervention may help. Possibilities include oral contraceptives or a pill called spironolactone.
If there is a lot of acne, Isotretinoin (accutane) can help.
A laser-like treatment called "photodynamic therapy" can damage the oil glands and decrease oil production.
Botox is now being used to decrease oilyness, but its expensive. ...Read more
What does that mean?: Most often this is a euphemism for "acne". If that's the disease, treat it scientifically and aggressively -- it's a very serious personal and professional liability. Overacetive sebaceous glands" is a "pop" diagnosis for everything from acne to rosacea to staph abscesses to the bumps of sebaceous hyperplasia. Sites using the term tend to offer subscientific "natural" remedies. ...Read more
No: It can be uncomfortable at times and embarrassing at times. You should apply very warm (not hot) compresses for 3-4 minutes at a time for about 5 times per day to see if it goes away. If still persistent and symptomatic after 3-4 days of this, then see your gynecologist for evaluation. ...Read more
Fordyce spots, tiny benign (non-cancerous), raised, painless bumps can occur over the lips and occasionally the genital areas.

U don't want 2: This is normal skin and anatomy. Leave it alone. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Why would you want to? You will injury yourself if you do this or persist in attempting to do this. Talk with your pcp or with a urologist or dermatologist and see if there is something going on elsewise. Man, enjoy what you have for the reason you have it and leave the rest alone. It is what it is! ...Read more
Not really.: They can be removed individually with an electric needle or certain types of lasers, but I don't know of anyone willing to do that.
