Default What is this? (pic) Pink bump on 10mo vulva

Myah's finished her first heat last month. She constantly licked/cleaned herself, and a few of these bumps appeared on her vulva (small, pinkish beige). I attributed these to her licking and figured I would keep an eye on them. All have disappeared, but this last one. Granted, it's only been a couple weeks and this one might disappear as well.

Anyone see these on their female dogs? What has been your experience?

Thanks, in advance.

My first thought is an ingrown hair. Watch it closely.

Thanks. Anyone seen these before?

When she was a wee puppy, she had a little pyoderma on her belly. Antibiotics and those went away. Sigh...I suppose we ought to get to the vet.

The picture I posted makes it look a bit more glossy/fluid filled that it really appears. It is more of a pinkish beige, benign sort of thing.

Could be an ingrown hair or plugged follicle. My dog had one of those after her heat cycle... after about two weeks, I inspected it closely while bathing her and discovered a clump of shorter hairs sticking out of it. Pulled the hairs out (which slid right out) and it healed up almost immediately.

My pup had the same thing near his wee wee, eventually it went away, never got worse. I honestly think it was a bite or ingrown hair.

Thanks!

Wasn't she a good girl to let me take that photo? Such a submissive pup. She just rolls over all relaxed.
