Eeeak! Please help!

I gave birth 10 days ago, vaginally - failed attempt at suction, forceps delivery in the end with an episiotomy.
For the last few days I have been covered in a nettle / hive type rash, headache and low grade temperature. I went to the doctors and they've prescribed a broad spectrum antibiotic and took bloods.
I'm due to see my midwife tomorrow for the final check and for the blood results.
However, this evening I was looking at my scar "down there" and I noticed just inside my Vagina near to the scar there is a small black lump, initially I thought it was a clot and tried to clean it off however it isn't and it is attached to me. I stupidly googled it and I'm really freaked out now. I know I'm seeing my midwife tomorrow but has anybody else had anything like this please? It is a bit sore down below but I assumed this was to be expected post child birth and cutting!

Thank you so much!

P.s. sorry for the absolute essay!
