You may have a...: Bartholin's cyst. This is an abscess that can occur on either side of the inner vagina near its entrance. You need to see a gynecologist (or at least a doctor who's experienced in gynecology) to confirm the diagnosis and drain the cyst. You may be prescribed antibiotics and given some other instructions to help the cyst heal. Unfortunately, it's not something you can treat on your own.
