Yellow headed spot on inner labia?

I saw some other posts related posts on here so I'm hoping you'll be able to help me out...

I woke up itching like hell down there and had a quick feel to find a lump. When I got a mirror to see, it looked like a spot with a yellow head. It's kind of a bigger version of what you'd have on your face. Just itchier.

blushI'm not sexually active so I'm hoping it's not an STI that I have some how managed to catch.

I'm going to try and get an appointment at my doctors often there is a week waiting list and for relatively urgent things it's 3 days. (Everything else you should go to the hospital for)

Should I apply antiseptic?

If it's Down There you could be seen more quickly and get a more confident diagnosis at a GUM clinic. It could be anything from an ingrown hair to genital herpes and if you wait to see your GP it might have disappeared by then.

I really didn't want to squeeze it (spreading of bacteria and all that), but I looked again and accidentally touched it, only for it to burst on it's own accord. hmm

After a bit of puss, a tiny bit of blood came out. Ive put tissue on it so imfection doesn't spread (or limits it).

It seems like it might clear up now. Should I still make a docs appointment?

I was always told that with any infection or open skin wound that bled, it is best to squeeze the blood out as probably contains infection and better out than in.

Then apply antiseptic cream.

Don't know how you you got a spot there, but should heal so long as your wee doesn't touch the open wound.

How big is it?

Mine was HUGE it had no head and felt like I had pulled a muscle, I took self to GP for an appointment for something for pulled muscle, she said there were no muscles there but I needed a smear anyway.

She couldn't get her erm.. finger/hand past the bartholin, off I went to hospital 2 hours later, was advised they could lance it or slit it open and leave and open wound for it the drain. [wince]

I went for option 1. freeze and lance ... Doctor then said it was too big and I to get knocked out and slit open and left to drain, op done at 5.30pm I was home by 11.30pm with tramadol and codeine.
