You need to be seen.: This sounds like an infected cyst, which needs drainage to get relief of the infection and pain. It has nothing to do with cleanliness or diseases---just bad luck! Go to an ObGyn or FP or if you can't get in quickly you can go to an ED for some pain relief and a referral. Meanwhile, sit in very warm water; you can also use a hot water bottle, wear a warm washcloth or a hand warmer to the area.

Many options: It sounds like you may have a condition called hydradenitis. There are quite a few treatment options. Many women have trouble like this if they shave the pubic area so the first suggestion is to clip or go natural rather than shave. If that isn't the cause or that change doesn't help, we move on to other treatments that may include skin scrubs, oral medications and in some cases laser treatment.
