Labial "blister": The recurring nature of the "blister" and its' location on the labia majora suggests a Bartholin gland infection. If it is swollen,us is not painful, and pus is extracted when "popped" makes that more likely. See a GYN MD when it is present to truly identify the cause. Often recurring Bartholin gland infections can be surgically abated with a procedure known as marsupialization.
