Vaginal Opening Weird Extra Skin? (photo)

I have something like a baby finger that is 2-3 cm tall and half cm diameter sticking out from my vaginal opening, I've had it for years after sexual intercourse, I am not sexually active for years now, it's light pink colored, recently I start to have a bad burning feeling down there, I'm using Daktarin cream for a couple of days with no change, but that extra skin feels swollen, usually I don't notice it, but now it is swollen and clearly sticking out, it is not a bulge skin, please help!

Vaginal Opening Weird Extra Skin?

It is really hard to tell much from the picture.  It may be a swollen gland, but I would highly recommend that you go see your OB/GYN and get it looked at.
