Totally normal: Not to worry! There are a whole bunch of glands down there that secrete different fluids for lubrication, etc. If ine if rhise glands gets a little plugged up, what you are describing can occur. Soak in a tub or put a warm compress on area. If it gets really painful, it could be or become an abcess- then a doctor needs to check it out. Warm soaks tonight and relax
