Thanks for the query.
Vagina will not contain hair follicles.
The pimple you mentioned could be due to some infection.
Bacterial or vaginal infections can lead to these type of lesions over the vagina.
As you are having pain due to the lesion, better to consult gynecologist once and get examined.
Don't squeeze the lesion, as it can increase the severity of the problem.
By examination, the exact cause of the lesion can be identified and treatment can be taken accordingly.
Taking sitz bath can give some relief and help in spontaneous letting out of pus from the lesion.
Take care.
