Painful Bump On Inner Lip of Vagina

This is the second or third time I've experienced this. I get a little bump on the inner lip that occurs after not shaving for a long time. My theory was that it was a sore from the hair on one side growing into a follicle on the other side. Don't know if that's true or not. All I know is this:
It is a bump that appears to be the same color as my skin unless it gets messed with, then it turns red.
There's no "head" on it.
It's hard. Feels like a ball beneath the skin.
If I try to pop it it gets red as if the blood were right beneath the surface.
It's on an area where the lips rub together.
I am sexually active, but have only had one partner who is clean so I don't believe it is an STD.
It hurts very bad.

The painful bump on the vagina can be due to infected boil, warts, or it can also be a bartholin’s cyst. Washes with antiseptic solutions will help. Antibiotics may also be necessary. Consult your Doctor for an evaluation. Hope this helps.

Thanks. I was worried for a while. It started to drain on it's own some white stuff and it's gone now. I'll still talk to my doctor though.
