Blister-Like Sore on Outer Labia

2485903?1202519317
I have a blister-like sore on my outer labia about the size of a pea.  It was like this like 3 days ago and i stumbled on myself and popped it.  It bled a lot.  Now that it has been a couple of days since it popped it is still bleeding a bit.  I've been wearing a band aid (it helps with the discomfort) and applying neosporin.  It doesn't hurt to the touch but it is hurting from irritation from walking and sitting and my clothing.    I had my husband look at it and he says it looks like a bump with a small sore in the middle.  

It is definitely not an ingrown hair or a cyst, I've had those before.  There is no puss on this bump/blister.  I have been tested for a battery of STDs within the past year two times and it was all negative.  I haven't been sexually active since my tests.

It is towards the back of my labia almost where the outer labia ends.

If you have an idea what this could be please post.  I'm very worried and I don't have a doctor's appointment until 4 days from now.

If it is a boil, wouldn't it have puss?

Well I went to my primary doctor and she didn't anything of it.  She said it was a very clean wound and that it seemed to be healing.  She suggested I use neosporin and a gauze on it until it heals.

She said it was probably not an STD or anything serious.

What a relief...but i hate the lack of exact answer.

Here is a Information and Medication that you can try to and this will work.  First you must clean the vagina area with an anti-bacteria soap.  Second you must let the vagina area dry completely.  I mean pat dry and the walk around and let it air dry. Next apply a Triple Antibiotic Ointment.  This ointment must contain these ingredients (Neomycin, and Polymyxin & Sulfates and that  Bactracin Zinc Ointment). I have never seen this kind of ointment over the counter.  I got this from the place I work for.  I is used on clients who has major sores.  You will feel comfort as soon as you do these things. I have tried this for myself. It heels with in a few days. Post your result as soon as you can. Yes I am a nurse.

I'm actually in the exact situation. Well, not in the fact that its bleeding a lot, but its kinda like a pimple, no puss, not an STD, just kinda sore, its not a boil, I've had a boil and I know what they look like. I'ts just kinda uncomfortable, and it makes me even more uncomfortable when i read all this crap on the internet about what it could be. It's frightening. Lol Good luck on your quest for answers.
