I am 17 and I have a red, sore lump on my vagina (about the size of a fingernail) I am a little worried as to what it might be but I don't want to tell my mum cause it's embarrassing. Any answers to what it may be? I hope it will go away by itself.

  • Could be an ingrown hair. Try soaking in hot bath to help releave the swelling and bring to a head. Then it should go away. I am not sure this is the answer but a possibility.
