Swelling and tenderness in Left labia majora. Surgery or antibiotics ?

My left labia majora is very swollen and tender. It hurts to put pressure on it, when i sit, when i walk, make sudden movements, and cough . Its not red, itchy, and I dont have any discharge . What can I do? Im in college and dont have a doctor in this city unless I went all the way to my hometown. Does this sound like something I need surgery or antibiotics for?

I went through your history.
Since your problem is of short duration and you have swelling and itching most probably it could be due ti infection
1.bacterial in which case swelling and pain will be present
2. Fungal infection in which case patch with scaling with itching will predominate
3. Bartholin,s gland infection in which there may a recent sexual exposure
You may take a course of antibiotics like dicloxacillin with fluconazole and anti histamines for itching
If not better cosult your family doctor
Wish u good health
