1 wart on labia majora formed years ago (when I was a virgin). Looks like ingrown hair I had a few years back. It doesn't hurt. Is it genital warts?
I have a bump on the far outside of my labia. It's perfectly round and does not look like a wart. I don't know what it is?
Warts are small rough lumps on the skin. They are caused by a virus (human papillomavirus) which causes a reaction in the skin. Warts can occur anywhere on the body but occur most commonly on hands and feet. They range in size from 1 mm to over 1 cm.

Yes probably correct: Yes I agree that from your description, the most likely cause of the white bumps is folliculitis. Applying moist heat for 10 minutes 2-4 times daily or bath soaks can help.

Yeast vaginitis?: Genital warts can appear (or reappear) months or years after catching HPV. Howver, warts don't itch; if you have warts, it's not the only problem. Vulvar itching is most suggestive of a vaginal yeast infection, which is much more common in women with diabetes. This could also indicate your diabetes is not under as good control as it could be. See your doctor and take it from there. Good luck! ...Read more

HPV: Sometimes small bumps on the labia are a sign of exposure to hpv (human papilloma virus). This is sexually transmitted but men aren't tested for this.

Hope that helps! ...Read more

I have a wart or bump inside the genital right labia. I had another one 3 weeks ago in the hair area. I've never been sexually active. Should I worry?
Not an STD, but...: With no sex ever, it's not an STD. The one in a hair bearing area may be folliculitis, ingrown hair, pimple, etc. Your topic tags suggest you're worried about gential warts, which is doubtful in the hair area. There are rare genital warts in people with no past intercourse, maybe from oral sex or hand-genital contact. Maybe more than one problem. See MD if you remain concerned. ...Read more

I would contact your county health department for more information. ...Read more
