Doctor: Hello. Welcome to ask the doctor.I understand your concern.As per details, the most likely possibility for your symptoms is a condition called vaginal candidiasis . It is fungal infection of skin involving the genitalia.Prolonged or recurrent antibiotic course often predispose for fungal infection due to change of normal flora of skin.The bumps you mentioned look normal in the photograph. Still you have any doubt , I would recommend you to visit your doctor so that she can do clinical examination.I hope it helps.Stay healthy.
