Hello Dila, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
The complaint you feel is indeed an uncomfortable complaint for a woman. However, there are many causes of lumps growing around the vagina, including:
vaginal ulcers / abscesses: starting from the presence of bacteria that infect the hair follicles in the vagina / folliculitis, and when not treated properly then they enlarge with pain, redness and possibly in the lump filled with fluid, namely pus.
Bartholini cyst: a cyst on the Bartholini glands / glands that produce lubricants for lubrication during intercourse. The blocked gland causes the fluid to be produced unable to pass, resulting in a painful lump that makes it uncomfortable to walk.
other fluid-filled cysts such as lipoma, atheroma
Diagnosing without checking the lump directly can lead to inaccurate selection of drugs that may be given, so the right way out is that you should immediately check yourself so that the dermatologist can know directly the type of lump you are complaining about, so that the medicine given can be in accordance with the underlying cause.
If you really feel uncomfortable with the lump you are feeling, then you should do the following simple things so that the lump doesn't get bigger and painful, namely:
Keep your feminine area clean, by not using feminine soaps that contain chemicals or fragrances or even using body wash
when present, change your sanitary napkins regularly according to the volume of blood that comes out during menstruation
washing your female area with clean water from front to back (from the vagina to the anus)
do a healthy lifestyle
try not to change partners
a few of us hopefully answer your question, thank you.
