Abscess: Sounds like you have an infection. These might need to be drained in the office and most of the time people have to take antibiotics for the abscess to resolve. You can try sitz bath 4-5 times a day to see if it would help it resolve. If the bump is more inside the vagina then it can also be a Bartholin's gland cyst versus abscess.
