Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am really glad to help you out. It can be infected hair follicles or boils. A Boil is caused by an infection of the hair follicle by staph aureus. Bacterial skin infections can be spread by shared cosmetics or washcloths, close human contact, or by contact with pus from a boil or carbuncle. Apply warm compresses on the bump and keep the area clean.
You should consult a doctor as you might need a course of antibiotics/anti-inflammatories to take care of the same. Other possibilities are bartholinâs cysts, sebaceous cysts, lipomas (fatty deposits) ,fibromas (fibrous tissue deposits) or herpes sores. A gynecologistâs examination is mandatory to confirm the diagnosis.
It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
