Small purple bump on inner labia. What is it and how can it be cured?

Hello. Today I noticed a small purple bump on my inner labia, near the clitoris, not the vaginal opening. It is very tender and does cause me to be uncomfortable sitting sometimes. I had a bigger lump about a month ago..about the size of an English pea that eventually popped. What is this? Do I need to see a doctor? Is there anyway I can get rid of it?

Hi, it appears to be a boil, that has formed due to infection of the previus boil, which is not treated medically.So i advise you to consult a doctor for diagnosis and treatment.
I to my patients with such symptoms prescribe antibiotic, anti inflamatory, and protiolytic for complete recovery, and to prevent recurrance.
Thank you.
