Herpes?: Lumps, bumps, blisters and other skin abnormalities on the genitals need to be evaluated. An examination will be needed to know the cause and treatment. You may be describing a herpes infection. This can present this way and cause fever and flu like symptoms on the first outbreak.

An infection: You are likely suffering from an infection. Should seek the help of a doctor in the next 24 hours. Ideally seeing an ob/gyn would be of benefit as you may need to have an incision of this sore.
