Yes. It's also possible to get ingrown hairs there, too, especially, if you shave.

If you are concerned about a pimple or skin mark on your genitals, it's usually a good idea to leave it alone and wait whether it notably heals within a week. If it doesn't, it would be a good idea to have it looked at by a doc, to make sure it's nothing serious.

On your outer labia, it's quite possible to have an ingrown hair or a regular pimple. If you have something on your outer labia that looks like a pimple, does not irritate you more than a regular pimple, goes away in a few days and you only have one- then I'd say that most likely it is indeed a pimple or ingrown hair. However, if you experience pain and soreness, and if it does not look like a regular pimple in any ways, if you have many of them or if you have some sort of cyst on your inner labia, then I'd definitely make a doctor's appointment as soon as possible and have it checked out- it might be a good idea to do that anyway, since I'm not a doctor and can't promise you that something is just a pimple over the internet. At the very least, if this does indeed seem just to be a regular pimple, do mention it at your next checkup, to be on the safe side.
