Here lately I have been getting a large pimple on my butt or on/near my vag. There are very painful and usually leave ugly scars. This happens right before or during my period. This past time I got the pimple and within a day it was gone.. which was weird... then I noticed a bump a little more on the lips and it looks like a bruise. And feels like one too.. it has likea bump Iiinside when I squeeze it.. and now there is another one on the right side farther down.. but it is more like a pimple not blue or black.. If I could put a picture I totally would.. but please help me.. I looked to see of it was an ingrown hair but I can't see a hair and I'm not about to go digging.. help me
it is possible to get zits in that area. Things like tight clothing or not regularly washing can make them more frequent. However, if they are uncomfortable and are making you worried, you can always schedule an appointment with a healthcare provider to have them take a look.

If this is an ingrown hair or a pimple, the best thing you can do is not pick at it and just keep it clean. You could try using a warm compress to try and soothe the area and open up the clogged pore/ingrown hair; just get a clean washcloth wet with hot water and hold it over the area a few times a day.
It's honestly not that unusual, or necessarily indicative of a larger problem, to have the occasional ingrown hair or pimple in your pubic area. Just do your best not to touch those spots with dirty hands or really mess with them at all; it's often tempting to poke at spots like that, but that will increase the chance of scarring.
