pea sized bump on vaginal area

Last night i noticed a pea sized bump on my labia majora, this morning i checked it out and noticed it had a white-ish color to it that wasn't there last night. I don't have any std's and I'm worried it could be something serious, even though its only been a day..
It only hurts when i touch it, not when i walk or sit or anything else
any advice is appreciated

Is this just an ingrown hair?  Or is it just a boil maybe from rubbing.

Hello,
It can be due to folliculitis or cyst. You should keep the area clean and apply some topical antiseptics. Also wear loose-fitting cotton clothing and use an antibacterial soap or mild soap like dove. Avoid any kind of cosmetics. Topical antibiotics such as mupirocin or neomycin containing ointment are also useful. In case the symptoms persist then get an evaluation done from a dermatologist and get cyst ruled out.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
