Suggest treatment for a small bump on the labia

I have a very small pimple looking thing on outer labia on left side. It just popped up yesterday, I applied heat to it, and it isn t as sore today. It s not hard, and is the same color as the surrounding skin, and had a head on it like a pimple on your face. This evening, it popped and pus and blood came out of it, same as it would with a pimple on your face. This happened only one time before, and it completely went away on it s own in maybe a 3 day period of time. What causes this to happen? Is there anyway to prevent them? Are these things common?

Hi,

This might be due to vulvitis or in other words labial infection. Wash it with warm water. Do not use tight underwear, clothes which irritates your skin. Do not wear tight clothes. When there is a pus discharge it has to be treated with local antibiotic. V-wash or any intimate wash will help you. Changing all the above will help you to get relief from the bumps to some extent. If not, consult your gynecologist once for direct examination.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
