Question: Hard, Round Puss-filled ball on outside of clitoris

 aperfectillusion - Wed Jun 29, 2005 11:02 pm

I'm an 18 year old female and about 3 days ago I began experiencing pain in my genital region. I noticed that there was a large bluish-purple bump near my clitoris. It almost looked as though there was a popped blood vessel. The bump was circular and hard, and it hurt when touched. Today, it had puss in it. I had a flesh wound around the same area about 3 months ago. I may be scared for nothing, but I have no idea what this is. Please help me.
If it is relevant I've only had contact with one person, and it was not penetration. I'm pretty sure he's clean.

User avatar Your symptoms sound much like the above post; you have an infection and it will not clear up without a doctor's care. Please see a doctor.
