Cysts on labia?

For the last two to three weeks I have had what looked like a small cyst or pimple on my outer labia. It was terribly tender to touch and even hurt when sitting in certain positions. It seems to be easing slightly and today I see another one is starting, but it is not sore. What could these be and how long should I wait before seeing my doctor?

These could be infected hair follicles or cysts. If you have another one starting, you should probably see your doctor. You may need antibiotics.
