    Strange Red Bumps
    sumlewis posted:
    I'm 25 and a female. I've never had any health issues besides an on going battle with anemia. When I was pregnant at the end of last year I noticed these two small bumps on me but my doctor never said anything when examining me nor did anyone when I had my son. No one acted as though it was anything out of the normal.

    I still have them though and am quite curious about them.

    The bumps are a light red color and are sitting near but not right on or by my anus. They're directly across from one another one each side, just at the start where my leg creases just about. They do not hurt nor do they itch. They have never bled that I can recall or seen, no drainage. They don't really bother me. They are very small, the size of a tip of an inkpin or small pinhead. They "stand out" a bit to where you can sort of pinch at them with tips of fingernails but just barely. I can feel them when touching but nothing about them bothers me at any time.

    They were just there one day and have remained.
