Hi, I have a bump under my skin in between my inner and outer labia. It does itch, is hard, and raised if I stretch the skin. It is a bit smaller than a pea. It has been there for about 2-3 days. I have never had sexual activity. I know you can't diagnose over the internet, but could you at least tell me whether it is something that I should get checked out or wait out?

Thanks very much.

No answer?

I thought this site had volunteers that gave a response to all questions. Anyway, the bump has gotten smaller and it doesn't itch, I'm pretty sure it will be gone in a couple days...but I am still unsure whether I should go to the doctors..

You were right in your original reasoning; we can't really diagnose over the Internet. It sounds like it is an irritation from shaving, chafing, or a plain old pimple, but we really can't see it. You're really the best judge; if you think it'll go away on its own, chill. If it's really bugging you or is hanging around, make a call or go in to the office. [Smile]

(Volunteers are just that. We got stuff going on; heck, I'm a bridesmaid in my sister's wedding starting 6 AM tomorrow. We're very sorry this got overlooked; we tend to prioritize replies based on urgency of posts and knowledge of available volunteers, and try our level best to answer every question but make no such guarantee (as noted in the guidelines). In the future, a gentle inquiry after a day or so is a much more effective, polite way to grab our attention.)

Okay. Thank you for answering. I wasn't trying to be rude.

I'm glad that it is nothing to worry about. There are so many warning for bumps that I just wondered. But I guess since I haven't had sexual activity it couldn't be anything.
