Why do I have a big painful lump on my labia?

Recently I’ve been getting these small lumps on my labia and it goes away after a few days but I have gotten one right now and it’s very big and it hurts when I touch it or when I sit a certain way. The pain is not unbearable it hurts but not insane pain. I have never received these bumps before my first ever bump happened last month and this is my second bump. It was small but it has now gotten big. I am not sexually active. I’m confused as to why this is happening.

    If you are shaving,stop. Shaving can cause ingrown hairs, or keloids, if you have African ancestry. The other possibility is an abscess (a pimple). Pimples will go away.
