Dear,

Thanks for staying online.

I am posting my answer below-

Well, It sounds to be cyst or folliculitis.

Such cyst, may arise from blocked skin gland.

It can also be due to- Bartholin's cyst, this is also called a Bartholin's duct cyst, which is a small fluid-filled sac.

You can firstly soak the affected part in warm water several times a day for three or four days and start taking over-the-counter painkillers like Motrin.

Red inflamed and painful cyst could be indicative of infection. A course of antibiotics should be given.

If symptoms doesn’t improve than , the cyst can be drained. Most of these treatments involve a minor surgical procedure.

Please don't delay and see your doctor at the earliest for clinical evaluation and get this issue managed.

Hope this helped
