I suggest that you have this evaluated at an Urgent Care center. ...Read more

It sounds as though you may have a skin infection with abscesses or "boils". These usually start out as tender, red areas which become hard and then eventually develop a "head" of white pus. Once this drains, the area usually heals on its own. Most of these are caused by staphylococcus aureas, a common bacteria found on the skin. Occasionally, however, the can be caused by mrsa, the antibiotic resistent kind of staph bacteria. If the infection is not getting better after drainage, then you may need antibiotics and should call your regular doctor.
Next time you develop one of these infections, start out by applying warm compresses to the area to help draw the infection out. Then, you should go to the doctor so that they can drain it, test for what bacteria is causing it and be able to treat you appropriately - sometimes with antibiotics, sometimes just with drainage. If you ever develop fever, chills, or feel ill with this infection, call your doctor immediately.
You can try and prevent these infections by practicing good hygiene and using anti-bacterial soaps. Your doctor may have other suggestions for prevention. ...Read more

Is it improving?: There are normal glands there, adjacent to the clitoris. Any skin gland can become infected (like a large pimple). As long as the cyst has drained and is resolving, you may not need any further treatment. If it is swollen, red, or continuing to be tender, then you may need to see a Gyn doc to evaluate the area and s/he may consider antibiotics. ...Read more
