Question: I have a lump on my vagina. It is on the underside of one of the lips. It started out small and is now growing bigger and is extremely painful, even to walk.What is it and will it go away without medication or a doctor visit? Please help. Jasmin

Answer: Dear Jasmin,

That lump could be a boil, an infected hair follicle. Boils are very common and usually disappear by themselves in 4 to 10 days.

Applying a warm pad to the affected area can help drain the lump and offer some relief for the pain. Take hot showers instead of baths and take vitamin C to boost the immune system.
