It could be a virus. Unlike bacteria, viruses are not living organisms. They are simply strands of DNA that insert themselves into your cells in order to propogate. Sometimes viruses like Herpes can flare up after long dormant periods. This isn't much different from a cold sore, which can appear long after infection, even if you have not kissed anyone in 6 months. You should see a doctor for a proper diagnosis, as some untreated STDs can lead to chronic systemic infection, organ failure or even cancer.

Good luck!

What is a wound and pimple on your outer labia if you are sexually active?

A wound or pimple on the outer surface of the outer labia could be caused by an ingrown hair, a blocked sweat or oil gland, or heat or "diaper" rash. The inner surface is mucous membrane, so if there, it could be a blocked lubrication gland. If it does not resolve itself in a reasonable time, or if it burns when exposed to touch, air, or urine, or if it resolves then reoccurs, consult a physician. Note that "not sexually active" means different things to different people, and there are many activities not involving penetration that can still transmit STDs. Like, um, hand-to-there.
