    Cyst on outer labia..........

    I have one right now I shave and it's just inside the hairline. It is very swollen and painful and developed throughout the day. No puss or anything, but I HATE it. I've had one once before, but it was smaller and went away very quickly. anyone have any advice on how to take the pain away for now?

    I have had a couple of them thru the years. The first time I went to the dr all worried. She said it was an ingrown hair and to treat it like a pimple with hot compresses and it did go away. So that is what I do.

    This has happened to me twice in the last two months. The first time my doctor said it was a cyst. The second time, I tested positive to a herpes exposure. I have been married for 14 years. I am stunned. Herpes tends to be a cluster of sores, so I am told, but mine was just one, exactly where yours is, exactly like you described. I got it 3 days after I got from a water park after sitting in a hot tub that wasn't very hot (and therefore didn't kill the germs). You should get tested.
