What could cause a bump on the lips of the vagina?

I am a type 1 diabetic with a sinus infection and I am taking the antibiotic cefuroxime axetil 500 mg tablet, one twice a day. I have been taking this for three days and have noticed no change in symptoms yet. Would it be safe to take mucinex with the antibiotic, and if so what type should I use?

Hello,

For this, there are few causes and most common is Bartholin's Cyst which Is located midway of the labia, and protrudes into the vagina and may cause discomfort during sexual intercourse.

Bartholin's cyst is formed when a Bartholin's gland is blocked, causing a fluid-filled cyst to develop.

Bartholin's cyst is not an infection, although it can be caused by an infection, inflammation, or physical blockage (mucus or another impediment) to the Bartholin's ducts (tubes which lead from the glands to the vulva).

Second, Infected hair follicles may form small abscess, which can cause a small swelling, but it is associated with redness and throbbing pain.

Proper diagnosis requires a proper physical examination of the swelling in question. You might consult a gynecologist who can examine and then decide on the appropriate treatment.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
Dr Iven Romic Rommstein, General Surgeon
