Welcome to ehealthforum

Bumps on the genital area can be due to:
1)Bartholin's Cyst - Is located midway of the labia, and protrudes into the vagina and causes discomfort during sexual intercourse.
Bartholin's cyst is formed when a Bartholin's gland is blocked, causing a fluid-filled cyst to develop. Bartholin's cyst is not an infection although it can be caused by an infection, inflammation, or physical blockage.If infection sets in, the result is a Bartholin's abscess. If the infection is severe or repeated a surgical procedure known as marsupialization may be required to stop further recurrences.
2)Infected hair follicles - can form small absesses, which can cause a small swelling, but they are associated with redness and throbbing pain.
3)Allergy to any substance as due to drug abuse.
Proper diagnosis requires a proper physical examination of the swelling in question. You might consult a gynaecologist who can examine and then decide on the appropriate treatment.
Meanwhile follow some measures as:
1)Wash the area with Tea tree oil mixed in water.
2)Wear loose cotton undies
3)Avoid vaginal douching, use of harsh soap or perfumes in the area
4)Drink plenty of water.
Take care!
