Exclamation 5 year old daughter with vaginal bump

Hi everyone, I am new here. I am beyond freaking out concerning my daughter right now. Yesterday she told me she had a bump on her vagina that she felt when she scratched herself. She says it does not hurt her, and it is not itchy. It almost looks like a pimple. I am freaking out because a family member in the house gets cold sores, and I am terrified that she somehow got the virus on her hands or something and transferred it to her genitals. I am so nervous waiting for her appointment tomorrow. Does anyone have any experience with a similar symptom?

Definitely get it checked out, but if it's not hurting or itchy then it's probably not herpes, especially for a first outbreak. I get cold sores on my mouth and they're definitely uncomfortable. I hear that outbreaks on the vulva are a bit painful. You say it looks like a pimple - it could very well be one. It could just be a clogged pore that swelled up, or a clogged sweat gland which are common on the genitals, especially in summer. I'm sure she's okay.
