Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am glad to help you out. Your concern is regarding the painful pimple on the clitoris. It seems like folliculitis or a boil. Folliculitis is the inflammation of one or more hair follicles. The condition may occur anywhere on the skin. In most cases of folliculitis, the damaged follicles are infected with the bacteria Staphylococcus.

Apply warm compresses on the bump and keep the area clean. You should consult a doctor as you might need a course of antibiotics(topical and oral)/anti-inflammatories to take care of the same.

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.
