are the bumps on the labia painful?

These are due to the Staph infection. You need oral antibiotic like Bactrim or clindamycin. You should go to the Urgent care today. There may be abscess also which needs to be drained after clinical evaluation. Best wishes, It was my pleasure to help you today.

These are not necessarily staph. Strep can do it too.
