Lump inside labia majora, the area after squeezing the lump seems to be white and is not healing. Cause?

Hi I had a lump on the inner side of my labia majora , I wasnt sure if it was a spot or ingrown hair at the time but it was quite painfull. I tried to squeeze it to see if it was a spot but caused terrible pain and swelling . After a coupke of days it went down but was still a slight bump there and hurt to touch once again I tried to squeeze it but this time my skin just peeled of from the bump. I left it alone kept it clean ect then the next day I noticed it was very white and lumpy at closer inspection that was my peeled skin it was like wet tissue , it was attatched in one small place but I got rid of it. Since the lump has gone but over a week later the area is white and doesnt seem to b healing at all. It only hurts on contact really.I have recently had unprotected sex but I am not suffering any other outbreaks it was just one lump in one place. No change in discharge , no pains in stomach or when urinating please help what could this be and how do I put it right?

It seems that it was a Bartholin's cyst which got infected and thereby painfull please visit a gyne for actual examination ot rule out other causes. The wound is not healing because the membrains/cyst wall of the cyst are still present there, these need to be removed surgrically in order to healing to take place

Maintain proper hygene and avoid intercourse until this heals
Nothing to worry since it is a very small surgrical procedure
Hope this helps
