Pus filled bump on vagina, chest. What could it be?

Hi, I have a bump that is mostly skin colored with a red center on the top of my vaginal lip. Sometimes for no reason it will swell . I have popped it twice and both times, brownish yellowish pus came out followed by blood . I also have two smaller versions on my chest but when popped, only clear pus comes out. What is this?

Thanks for the query.
According to your description the swelling could be a Bartholin cyst.
When the duct of the gland gets blocked it will format a cyst.
When the cyst gets infected it can from an abscess. That will contain pus and blood.
As you are having recurrent attacks, better to consult gynecologist once and get examined.
You may need one course of antibiotics to cure the infection.
Take care.
