peace of mind

I noticed this small thing today. It's small. It only happens in that one spot. It doesn't feel like a pimple but it feels like fluid is in it. Doesn't hurt. It's on the side inner lips if that helps.

I have not had sex in over 6 months. I have never shown signs for herpes or any STI. I used my sex toy 2 days ago for the first time in a while and used it for a while. I also just got off of my period.

There are 3 photos in my profile.

Does anyone have any ideas?

Hi there.  It could be what Anniebrooke says. But there are other things too.  It doesn't sound like anything sexually related, you'd not get an std from a toy that belongs to you and you haven't had sex for a long time.  I would not think this is herpes if you've never had an outbreak before and haven't had sex in 6 months.   So, what other things could it be?  What about inflamed or infected hair follicles?  https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/folliculitis/symptoms-causes/syc-20361634  That can look like a pimple.  Cysts and boils are very common as well.  https://www.healthline.com/health/womens-health/vaginal-boils Keep your hands off of it though.  Your hands have bacteria on it that can transfer to it and cause infection. You don't want that.  Is it painful by the way?

I would guess that it's nothing, maybe a blister from your prolonged use of your toy. I don't think herpes lesions look like normal skin with a little blister full of clear water, and I don't think they happen out of the blue after a number of months. (You might post this in the Herpes community just to check, though. They're the experts.)
