Warm soaks: If you have a vaginal cyst or boil then try warm soaks and see if it will go away. Do not squeeze it. If it does not resolve see your doctor for an exam.

See doctor: .....unless you don't mind taking care of those types of infections over your Virginia and then, having a complicated infection spread over the Carolinas, Georgia, and Florida resulting in a very unenjoyable Spring Break as it were and ultimately having to keep Virginia indoors and not letting her out to play until things have quieted down.

Hot compresses: I hope you mean vagina! Try hot soaks for 30 minutes in a tub, four times a day or so, and put on some bacitracin ointment and a bandage, if small If it is big, you need to get seen for treatment. Avoid scented detergents, soaps, fabric softeners, shaving close.

Common problem: Ingrown hair in female genital area are mostly due to hair shaving or use of tight panties. There are ways you can remove ingrown hair with the right forceps and a mirror as ended. If there is redness or swelling it may indicate infection, fir which you may need an oral or topical antibiotic.

See a doctor: it could be that or infected cyst, or infected pimples, or bartholin cyst. either way it is better if you see a doctor.

Get it drained: by a clinic. Meanwhile, apply warm compresses to soften and help it to drain.
