Painful Swelling On Outside of Vagina

So I've never had any issues with my genitals before, but lately it seems like it's rebelling against me. I was having irregular spotting awhile ago, so I went to the doctor and got diagnosed with a bacterial infection. She changed my birth control and put me on a week's dose of Flagil. For awhile, it seemed like everything was great and healed, but now I've got a strange, brownish-black discharge and soreness around the left side of the outside of my vagina. It's not anywhere else - just that one spot. It feels swollen to the touch, and it's uncomfortable to walk. I've looked at the symptoms of UTIs and yeast infections, and it doesn't really sound like either one of those. It hurts to pee, but it's more like a stinging where the urine is coming in contact with the soreness than actually hurting. It doesn't really itch at all, either. It doesn't smell at all that I can discern. I'm a virgin, so there's no way its an STD.

I'm going back to the doctor on Monday if this doesn't go away by Sunday, but in the meantime, does anyone have any idea what this could possibly be or what I can do to keep it from getting worse?
