In brief: Vaginal acne

Vaginal acne is a skin problem that is typically caused by a change in your hair follicles and sebaceous glands.
Although a fairly common condition among women, vaginal acne can be irritating, embarrassing and uncomfortable. Treatment can be with benzoyl peroxide, or mild topical tretinoin and or oral antibiotics like solodyn (minocycline) or doryx, see your local dermatologist or gynecologist.

Certainly acne-like lesions can occur on the external lips (labia major). However, labia minor lesions are probably not acne and should be examined.
