In brief: See doctor. Herpes?

No vaginal sore is likely from either bacterial infection or friction.
If definite injury, maybe a known scratch while inserting a tampon, etc, then sit tight a few days; it will heal. If no known injury, see doctor ASAP. Herpes is the most common cause of unexplained genital sore, but not possible if you've never had vaginal intercourse or received oral sex. No neosporin, could screw up diagnosis
