May not be yeast...: A yeast infection usually looks a bit different. Usually there is generalized itching and a discharge that looks a little like cottage cheese. It doesn't usually "start as a sore" and turn into a big bulge. There may be something else going on. You may want to get an exam and find out what it is. Best wishes!
