Hello, Localized Lump may be -
Cyst– Vulva has plenty of glands in it which secrete lubricating secretions. It is possible that the duct of one of the glands gets blocked to produce a swelling (bartholin’s cyst). Such swellings may be painless to begin with. However, there are chances that it gets infected and becomes painful and tender.
Hernia– A part of the internal viscera may protrude through a vulvar lip to give a swelling. Swelling due to hernia are reducible and usually painless. They become more prominent on prolonged standing.
Abscess– An abscess is collection of pus due to a localized infection. This may be due to pulled hair, blocked duct, insect bite etc.
An abscess needs immediate attention. You need to get it drained at the earliest. In your case it looks may be infected cyst or abscess, you may have to change antibiotics or may have to take injectables, incision and drainage many also be considered of the infected cyst or abscess.
