There were no injuries. I think the swelling has been here for a couple of days. A few weeks ago I had a pus and blod discharge on toilet paper and that really was odd.

I am sorry, I cannot phone you. I am writing you the answer.

This can be infected Bartholin cyst, which may need a course of antibiotic or minor surgical drainage, which is outpatient procedure.

Any pus warrant an evaluation as it denote infection and will require antibiotic.

You may meanwhile sit is warm tub of water and put some Betadine in the water which is antibacterial.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.
