A pimple-like bump on the vagina?


Q: Hi, I am an 18 year old girl, and about 5 or so, I noticed I have a bump that resembles a big pimple or a spider bite (its red) on the right side of my vagina, close to the "lip." I think I noticed it probably last weekend (its currently wednesday now) and it was small, and I didn't think much of it because I have had something similar to this before- but it either swelled a little bit or got bigger, and its kind of itchy now, but not really painful. I did have unprotected sex 5 days ago, and there was skin to skin contact. I googled it to see if other people had any similar situations and herpes was something that was coming up quite a bit. Im just not quite sure if I just have a big pimple and it'll go away eventually, or if I may have an std of some sort. I only have this one, I don't have any anywhere else. I can't go to a doctor because my parents would kick me out if they knew I wasn't a virgin. I looked into Planned Parenthood and may give them a call. What do you suggest I do? Any medications I could try? I don't want to make a huge deal out of it if I don't have to.
