Sore on labia majora

A few days ago I noticed a lump forming on my labia majora which really red and tender. It looks kind of like a pimple or something.. It really stood out and had a head on it. I do shave everything down in that area, I'm thinking it might be an ingrown hair or something, but theres no hair coming out of the actual sore. When I went to the bathroom earlier it was bleeding pretty bad and the head came off. I've been using a hot cloth frequently, its helped a bit, the sore went down and all. But my labia is still really swollen, like there's liquid/puss in there. It's not realy that painful, more so uncomfortable. I really have no idea what it is...I'm pretty much freaking myself out. I know I can dedinately rule out herpes, my last gyno test was in January, and i was clean, and have only been with my current boyfriend since then. Protected everytime.

Anyone have any idea what it may be and what i can do myself to get rid of it..? I'm thinking of just booking an appointment on monday with my doctor, but its so embarrassing..so its like my last resort.

Re: Sore on labia majora

Sounds like a Bartholin cyst ,which can be caused by a blocked duct,can be easily treated by antibiotics. Nothing to be embarrassed about. make an appointment with your doctor.
