Brief Answer:
frictional sore...likely

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for the query to healthcare,
This appear to be a normal frictional sore which may have developed either due to scratching or hair clipping or probably during rough handling of the vulva. This is not an STD if your concern is about herpes to be specific. This has inflammation and is long flat with trasudative fluid filled in it.
This can be cured with local application of int soframycin thrice a day for 3-4 days and keeping the area clean. However you may visit your physician for a local exam and prescription, also a swab test to rule out any infection for certain,
I hope i have answered your query,
