What you have is an bartholin cyst. It is an infected or inflamed bartholin gland that is located on your labia. They are painful and very sore to touch. You can take a mirror and do an examine yourself to see. It will look like a pimple and vary in size. Some have to be surgically removed. Use a warm compress and take some meds for pain.It may drain on its own, but if it gets bigger, go either to a med check or your personal doctor to get some antibiotics. They form when irritated, watch wearing tight jeans or clothing that is doing the rubbing.

The size, color and texture of labia vary from woman to woman. There is no 'normal' standard because of genetics. It would be like asking what is the cause for a long nose. However, friction from various activities, both sexual and non sexual can effect the size, color and texture of both the labia majora and labia minora. This is why some women have very small pale labia and others have very large, protruding, heavily textured/wrinkled labia.
