Bump inside vagina, pus and blood-filled. Ingrown hair?

I have a small bump inside my vagina close to my clitoris but hair still grows there. It was purplish red and did not have a whitehead but i was scared and i popped it. I m sorry this is gross but there was pus and blood, but I do know that that can happen with an ingrown hair as well. I recently shaved around that area and was sexually active maybe a few weeks ago. I was thinking maybe it was irritated because I have not been sexually active in about 6-7 months. I want to know if it is herpes or just an ingrown hair. It did not hurt before. I just panicked and wouldn t just leave it alone. I thought maybe it was an ingrown hair? I am freaking out. I don t see any other bumps with it and it does not resemble a blister .
