More Labia Bumps -- Related to Change in Physical Activity?

Hi all -- I know someone just posted about labia bumps, but I've got a slightly different issue than the last poster.  I have two bumps, one on each of my labia minora, about 1/2 way between my clit and my vaginal opening. They are mirror images of each other, although the one on the right appeared a couple of days before the one on the left.  They don't hurt, they're just a bit itchy sometimes.  I can see them with a hand mirror, they are not red nor do they have any kind of 'head' on them. 

I've had Bartholins cysts before, and those were right at the entrance to my vagina.  (They were diagnosed by an OB/GYN).  These bumps are not in the same spot.  I haven't been doing anything differently lately - except - for starting to take spin class and swimming a lot more. Although I don't wear tight bike shorts, I'm wondering if perhaps these activities are contributing to clogged hair follicles or something.  I don't wax my labia, but I trim it and gently exfoliate with a sponge and warm water to try to prevent any ingrown hairs. 

If anyone has any insight, I'd appreciate it.  I'm going to try warm compresses to see if I can get them to come to a head in case they're the sort of things that will do that, but other ideas about what they are and/or how to prevent them would be appreciated!

(Also, any ideas about how to make the seats of spin bikes less heinously uncomfortable would be welcome, too!)
