it's not visible, it's more on the inside and you can feel it. it's about pea size and a little painful if you touch it

Detailed Answer:
It could be a small cyst or a boil.
Really difficult to say without looking at it.
Try taking a course of oral antibiotics for 5 days, and if it gets bigger, redder or more painful, consult your gynec for it.
Take care.
