I have had a canker sore on my labia major

I am a 19 year old female and I have had a canker sore on my labia major for four days now and it doesn t look like it is going to be clearing up anytime soon. It is about the size of a pea. It s not painful unless I put pressure on it or if some urine gets on it. It is also hard like something is underneath of it. I haven t had and problems like this before. I have already been to the doctor , but he refused to look at it because he is only a pediatrician and he referred me to a gynecologist . I have made an appointment but i am too impatient to wait for answers and hoping you can give me an idea of what it might be. I am hoping it is not and STD like herpes , because I am sexually active with my one partner of 4 years. And if it is of any help, I am not on any medications, I wear tight fitting panties, I wash myself everyday, and I do have sex often (rough). I have been searching the internet for a couple days now of images and articles of similar sores, but fail to find any. Your answer is greatly appreciated, thanks.

Thanks for your query.

It could be a STD based on the history you presented with.

And It Is highly recommended to visit a gynecologist or a Dermatologist, since It needs thorough examination.

And also do not go for any self medication since each STD has a different antibiotic regime and It needs to be used for appropriate period.

Please do not hesitate to meet a doctor and reveal your active sexual life, which Is Important part In history.

It Is advisable to start your sexual life post marriage to respect our moral values.
