Concerned about a vaginal lump. Had merca staph infection. Are these related?

I was shaving the vaginal area and then latter noticed a bump and I though if was razor burn bug it grew to the size of a quarter and felt like a pea sized bump under it. I poped it and puss came out and then blood. The size decreased n the pea size bump under it is mostly gone but now its peeling. I had the flesh eating disease merca or whatever its called a few months back. But that was on my arm. It kinda reminds me of that but I'm not sure if this is from shaving or not.

Thanks for your query.
It could be an abrasion from shaving that got abraded.
It could be a hair follicle that got infected and secondarily had staph or some other bacterial infection and formed an abscess.
It could also be a Bartholin's cyst that got infected and formed an abscess.
I would strongly advise you to consult a gynecologist, and have an opinion and treatment.
All the best.
