Pea sized itchy lump on labia majora. What could this be ?

I found a pea sized lump on my labia majora yesterday while in the shower. It doesn t hurt and doesn t have anything like puss in it. It is slightly pink and it itches pretty bad. It has gotten somewhat smaller since yesterday but I am worried about the possibilities of what it could be. It is near the front at the bottom of the mons pubis where the lips start opening and on the right side. It appears like a bug bite but I find that hard to believe. What could this be? I do not itch anywhere but at this site.

Hi thanks for your question.
Don't' worry and be relaxed.
The pea sized lump which your mentioning on your labia majora could be eigther folliculitis or small lipoma.
since it has decreased in size the possibility is more of folliculitis.
Wait for 2 to 3 days,if it doesn't subbsides of its own, take a course of atibiotic for 3 days .Hope fully it will subsides of its and will not need antibiotics.
Hope I answered your question.
