Sore labia majora near mole, pus filled, bleeding. Should I be worried?

I have a mole that is on my labia majora . I have had it for well over 20 years. I am 36. I have noticed some sensation for several weeks, even when just walking. This morning when drying off from showering I had more pain than usual surrounding the mole. As I examined it I noticed it to be larger, raised, and rather sore. I had my husband look at it and he noticed it to be larger and raised as well. This evening, when I got home from work, I had my husband examine it and we noticed a darker spot on it. We took tweezers to it to see if it was an ingrown hair by chance. It was not, but he did get a sort of small plug out of it. After that, pus and blood followed. I did squeeze it to see if more would come out and it did. If you push around the outside of the mole you can feel underneath that there is a definite mass. What am I looking at here? Should I be worried?

Thanks for writing to us.
From the description it seems to be a folliculitis or a bartholin's abscess. You need to have it examined from your gynecologist so that pus can be drained properly and systemic antibiotics can be given to control the infection. Till then you can do a hot fomentation.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
