Hello and welcome to HCM,
Presence of a lump on the labia may be due to a number of causes e.g.:
- inflammation of hair follicle
4. Bartholin cyst
- inflammation and blockade of Bartholin glandHerpes simplex
infection presents as a painful fluid filled vesicle on the external genitalia.
The lesion that you have mentioned appears to be due to one of the above mentioned lesion.
In case of boil, folliculitis, inflammation of Bartholins gland, a course of antibiotics is required.
In addition to antibiotics, Bartholins gland inflammation also requires marsupilization (de-roofing of the Bartholins gland).
Consult your gynecologist for clinical examination and thus management.
Thanks and take care
