Hard lumps around vagina, dark red, puss coming out. What this could be? What should i do?

I have had a few hard lumps around my vagina ... one under the top of my panty line and the first one I had was in the crease between my leg and my vagina.it would sting if I was walking or sat a certain way. they were a dark red color with no head so I decided to force them to pop... It hurt, but it relieved the pain. The puss was a brownish white color and then came the blood which looked a little thick it also had a bad odor. I have Ben with the same guy for 4 years and and am 100% positive its not an std so what could this be? I have shaved down there since I hit puberty and this has never happened

Hello,

Thanks for posting on HCM,

To me, it looks like a complicated . It starts when hair follicles are damaged by rubing from clothing, blockage of the follicle, or shaving. Most of the time, the damaged follicles become infected with Staphylococcus (staph) bacteria. Common symptoms include a rash, itching, and pimples or pustules near a hair follicle in the neck, groin, or genital area.
It is not STD.
Since there is already a skin bridge due to follicular hair infection, it can complicate to form a typical abscess such as the one you are actually presenting.
All you will require is an effective anti-staph antibiotics to cure the infection and if abscess collective can be drained at home or in the hospital (better still int he hospital so as to maintain good aseptic condition during draining).
You will need to go to a hospital for proper care.

Hope this helps
