Your vagina is inside your body so I am sure you meant your vulva? If it is on your outer lips it be an ingrown hair. Do you shave?

It is very likely just an ingrown hair.

Here are some common shaving tips:

First trim hair down but be careful not to cut yourself.

Take a warm shower or bath before shaving. At least 5-10 minutes of the heat will soften skin and relax the hair follicles.

Exfoliate. Rid your skin from dead skin cells to provide a closer shave by using a mild exfoliator or your favorite body wash with an exfoliating washcloth on your pubic area.

Use a good shaving cream or gel made for women. Make sure skin is damp but not overly wet.

Do not use a cheap disposable razor. Use a razor with a pivoting head and multiple blades to give you a smooth, close shave. Once again, use one made for women. Do not use an old blade. First go in the same direction of hair growth and then in opposite direction while holding skin taut. Don't go over the same area too many times.

In between strokes, be sure to rinse blade. A clogged razor won’t work well.

Rinse pubic area and pat dry with towel.

Apply a light, preferably unscented lotion to moisturize the skin

Remember: Keep all products on the outside of your body only. And avoid shaving during your period, as skin is more sensitive.

Using a small mirror will also help you see better.

Prop one foot up on the side of the stall, the side of the bath or the toilet to give you easier access.
