Swollen clitoral gland causing intense pain on touching, had sex few days ago. Cause and cure?

Is it normal to have a swollen clitoral gland (im assuming that is what it is as it is appears to be a capsul shaped lump to the side of my clitoris underneath the skin, which is not stationary but can move when touched)? i had sex a few days ago and it has not gone away yet. This has NOT happened before. IT IS EXTREMELY PAINFUL when touched. Should i be concerned? what is this and how can i treat it?

Thanks for the query.
According to your description, the possibilities are :
- Genital infection causing enlargement of the clitoris.
-Bartholin cyst. Bartholin gland opens at the inner side of the labia.
When the duct of the gland gets blocked it will form a cyst.
If the cyst gets infected abscess will form.
You once consult gynecologist, get examined to find out the exact cause of the problem and take treatment accordingly.
Take care.
