Pregnant. Burning sensation in left side of labia majora. Swelling in vagina. Suggest

I'm 26 weeks pregnant with twins. For about 10 days, the left side (only) of my labia majora toward the front is intensely burning. It's not red, there has been no increased discharge, no symptoms of anything else. It only hurts in this one spot, especially when I am walking or moving. It almost feels like razor burn or something. I can't see any evidence of it, but when I touch it, it burns. My whole vaginal area is rather swollen as a result of the pregnancy--but what could be causing the spot of burning?

Hello and welcome to HCM,

A painful area on left side of the labia which burns on touching can be due to a number of causes.
An injury, infected cysts, etc can be the cause of these symptoms.
A clinical examination is required to look for any localized lesion in the introitus.
Associated swelling of the vaginal wall can be due to congestion during pregnancy.
However, it can be secondary to the infection/ inflammation of the introitus.
Infected cyst can be surgically removed even during pregnancy.

Thanks and take care
