Warts or herpes?: Neither yeast nor BV would cause a "cluster of bumps". If they are more or less permanent -- i.e. unchanged after more than a few days -- it could be genital warts. If brief and initially blister-like and then sores, herpes is more likely. See a doctor and get it checked out. Good luck! ...Read more
