I felt pain around the skin on my vagina. Well, today I have a lump quarter sized or larger?

I’m a 24 year old female with no past medical history. I’m only on the Nexplanon birth control rod implant in my arm.

A few days ago, I felt pain around the skin on my vagina. I felt and there was a penny sized lump that was hard as a rock. I figured it might just be a bad zit and I would give it a chance to come to a head. Well, today the lump is quarter sized or larger and it still hasn’t come to a head. The lump is very hard and very very painful. It feels like I can almost “roll” the lump under my skin. I can barley walk, sit or stand because of the pain. Should I go to the ER? Urgent Care is closed and I don’t have a family doctor right now. The pain is becoming unbearable.

Hi this is an infected vaginal cyst , only treatment is surgical removal , until then take a strong antibiotic and an anti inflammatory (if the cause of the block causing the cyst is removed by antibiotics you may not need surgery
Good Luck

you can start on anti inflammatory and fibrinolytic tablest like ibuprofen,paracetamol,trypsin,serratiopeptidase and a short course of antibiotics.
If it des not improve within 3 days,you can consult a gynecologist.

This is possibly sebaceous cyst which may be infected ..surgical treatment is the only treatment if it is proved infected…but if you have no access to a general surgeon right now..get antibiotic orally abd you can use an antibacterial ointment till you see your doctor..
