I have a hard lump on my vagina. Yesterday it was whitish but it's red like the rest of my vagina skin flaps. Can you help me just not going to a doc.

Possible cyst: Could be a cyst which can get inflamed or infected. Warm sits baths (sitting in warm bath water for 10-15 min) and topical antibiotic ointment can help. If it does not go away you will need to see a doctor. They may need to prescribe an oral antibiotic or remove it. A persistent growth needs to be evaluated and/or biopsies to rule out cancer. ...Read more

I have a small hard lump on my vagina, slightly above my clitoris. It hurts but a warm compress so I can extract a small bit of pus. What do I do?

Warm compress: A warm compress is a good home remedy, or you could sit in a bathtub of warm water (add a little epson salt or sea salt to the water). If a little pus is coming out on it's own, then you could encourage the rest to come out with a little firm pressure, avoid squeezing the lump hard - if it is ready to drain it will not require a lot of pressure. If it's getting bigger or increased redness see MD ...Read more

I have a hard lump under the skin on my vagina near my clitoris and it hurts if I press on it. What is it? What should I do about it?

This: This is likely a cyst or even an abscess (closed pocket of pus) however you should have an evaluation to make sure.
