See answer: If you are not sexually active it is likely just a small pimple. Apply warm compresses and it should resolve. If it doesn't see physician. If you are sexually active there is a possibility is may be genital herpes. In that case see your physician, or consider a consultation with a Health Tap physician.

Bump: Your mom is probably right but if it bothers you go see your Gyn and have it checked. They can drain it or remove it for you. Anything you feel that doesn't feel right is best to be seen by your doctor. Hope this helps you out.
