Brief Answer:
Bartholin cyst

Detailed Answer:
Dear patient,

Thanks for your query. Based on the description and particularly the clear discharge expressed, the "pimple" corresponds to a Bartholin cyst, a benign accumulation of serous material by a plugged gland in your labia. These are usually excised surgically with local anesthesia. These are benign!


Hope that helps, wish you the best,
