Bumps on perineum?

I've been paranoid about checking my vulva lately, as I was afraid I could have gotten herpes (bf kissed me when I had what I think was a coldsore and went down on me). While checking the other day, I noticed loads of flesh coloured bumps on my perineum. I don't know if they were always there - I have never checked that thoroughly. My boyfriend said they look normal like they're supposed to be there. I also have a lot of little bumps around my anus, these are definitlely OK as I have been checked out there many times (I suffer from hemorrhoids :( )
I am worried now that the things on my perineum could be genital warts. I got STD checked earlier this year, the doctor took a good look and didn't say anything was wrong but they might not have been there then. Does anyone else have bumps like this?

If the bumps have a roughish texture (think cauliflower) then it could be genital warts. Totally not something to be TOO alarmed about, the procedure to remove them is pretty simple.

If the bumps are smooth then they might just be blocked pores or something of that nature.

No they don't look cauliflower like or anything. They look pretty 'uniform' too, as in there isn't one cluster, they're sort of evenly spread around.

Do they look kind of like chicken skin? Cause that's totally normal.

Sort of, yeah. They look like the things most guys have on their penis ('hair bumps') but I dont know if thats normal for me as I don't have any hair growing there. I found this picture which looks similar and it's apparently normal. I freaked out cos some of the bumps were a bit 'protruding' looking but it's the same on this picture (NSFW!)
