See below: Hair follicles, sweat and sebaceous glands of the vulva/labia are common sites of infection and abscess formation. Bartholin and Skene duct/gland cysts and abscesses are specific types in that area. Your symptoms and lack of resolution with time and conservative Rx (sitz baths) are concerning and may be indicative of abscess formation that often requires I &D. Recommend you see your gynecologist.
