This is most likely Bartholin cyst or an abscess. Bartholin glands (also called the greater vestibular glands) are located inside of both clitoris hoods, and blockage of the Bartholin ducts is a common reason for this kind of swelling and pain.

What should i do
Health Professional: Dr. Sohaib, Doctor replied 4 months ago

Bartholin gland's main function is to secrete mucus to provide vaginal lubrication; and like any other gland in the body, the ducts may get blocked some time leading to cyst formation or an abscess.

Right now, you can take Motrin or Aleve (anti-inflammatory pain medicines); sitz bath (sitting twice or thrice daily in luke warm water with some antiseptic added).

If this doesn't respond or reduce in size, then the only way to get further help is to see an OB/GYN doctor for a clinical exam and this may require incision and drainage.

And in that case you would also need a course of antibiotics.

KevinBeaverton, OR

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
