Question What causes bumps to form around the vaginal area? Assuming it isn't ingrown hairs, then what? The bumps are very small and red, raised, and just a little bit painful to the touch. Answer There are several main causes of the bumps you are describing. If the bumps are mostly in the pubic hair line, then there is a high likelihood that they are ingrown hairs. These show up as red painful bumps that surround a hair shaft, and they usually respond just to good skin hygiene and some topical antibiotic cream.
