Hi Anon

Thank you for your question!

Vaginal bumps that are harmless can be due to ingrown hairs or even from itching if your vaginal area is dry.

I assume the biopsy was for HPV/Genital warts and herpes- it's good that this came back negative.

Something that may be going on is called mulluscum contagiosum - this is a very common viral skin condition that can come up anywhere on the body. One of my children has had these on their legs (it's more common in kids but anyone can have it). You can read more about this here: http://www.empowher.com/parenting/content/4-faqs-about-molluscum-contagiosum

Another thing to consider is that you may have contact dermatitis. Contact dermatitis is inflammation of the outer layers of the skin caused by contact with a particular substance. It usually presents as a rash that is typically confined to the specific area of the body where the contact occurred.
You can read more about that here:

Anon, I think it's a good idea for you to see a dermatologist about these bumps - you may have a skin condition that happens to be in your genital region and that is not connected to your reproductive system.

I hope this has helped you and please keep us updated.
