At Least A Yeast: Yes it could. But just in case you're not convinced, wait a few more days and I bet it'll start itching. But if you just want to get rid of that pesky cottage cheese now, try an over-the-counter (OTC; non-Rx) cream at your local variety store and see if that works. If not, you might then need a prescription cream or pill from your doctor. He or she might also check you for other things in there.

Try a Monistat suppository for 3 to 7 days. If your symptoms worsen or you have a smell, then call your doctor.

Several possibilitie: An exam is the next step. A small cyst is more likely than a lymph node. Could be a labial cyst or something called a Bartholin's cyst. Depending on the location it could be a genital wart or other growth. An exam is the way to figure this out.
