Specializes in Internal Medicine - Nephrology & Dialysis

You are describing a pimple (furuncle). This is a local bacterial infection. Get an OTC antibiotic ointment-like Bacitracin and apply it twice daily. Don't press or squeeze it. If it enlarges or spreads, see your physician as you may need to take oral antibiotics

This bump could be something serious like herpes or something simple like a hair follice. See your gynecologist to be sure.
