Hard lump on labia majora, have not shaved the part ever. What could be the cause?

I am embarrassed to ask about a hard lump on my labia majora . I had one once before a long long time ago and it went away. It itched at first and then I noticed a painful lump. I don t shave down there so I don t know if it s an ingrown hair .. The last time I had one I called my ob/gyn and the nurse told me to use a warm compress because it was probably an ingrown hair.

thank you for query.It is not clear about the morphology size site duration symptoms etc .it may be due to infection or a cyst .You can try with topical antibiotics like fucidin or mupirocin.clean the area with warm water twice daily.Also do not trim the hairs to short.please consult gynecologist for diagnosis as both recur.Dr Bharatesh
