I have a nickel sized lump that is very painful and itchy?

I’m a 30 year old female and pregnant. I have a nickel sized lump that is very painful and itchy at top of my vagina lip. Its red and has yellow. Also the entire left side is swelled. Hurts to move or walk. This has been here a little over a week but keeps getting worse each. I don’t know if its a boil, possible staph infection, ect. And I don’t know if I need to go to hospital or not. Its extremely painful.

Age: 30
Medications: Zoloft vistril
General Information: No

Hello. Looks like MRSA – Staph Infection or Herpes. You need to get culture and blood test done. Also talk to your Obstetrician or Ob-gyn about this. Thank you for your question.


Looks like bacterial infection only and yes it can be MRSA.
but a confirmation is a must..
Consult your Gynaecologist and get evaluated..
A blood test can confirm..
You can be advised antibiotics oral and topical if bacterial infection is confirmed..

Hope this helps..
