A single pimple like bump on vagina?

I have a single pimple like bump on the labia majora, it was hard and painless at first, but is now uncomfortable to touch. I am 18 and is sexually active, but only have had one partner and always use protection. Have not had sexual intercourse for nearly 2 months, so could it be an STI? This bump came a month or so ago. What could it be? just a simple pimple?

Hi there and welcome.  Well, I'm so glad to hear that you use protection when having sex. And it helps that you haven't had sex in two months.  I am guessing this is not an std (but only a screening would make sure and I do recommend that).  You could have a boil.  Yep, that happens.  If it is painful and filling with pus, it could be infection.  I'd watch it for a day or two ad if it is still painful, consider being seen by a doctor at either your regular practice or a clinic like Planned Parenthood.  Good luck hon
