Our expert says:
This is a Bartholin gland that gets infected - if it happens again, and it makes a yellow point, try and pop it with a sterile needle or start using Bactroban antibiotic ointment as soon as it starts getting red and sore again. Sometimes it needs to be drained by a doctor. It is quite common - due to friction of pants etc.
