Hi,

Thanks for the query.

There is possibility of infection or lymphoedema or any growth on vulva.

Abrasion might have got infected by bacteria. Infection can cause local lymph nodal swelling.
As you traveled to distant place, if that is endemic area of filaria then the possibility of lymphoedema is there.

Mild infections will usually subside soon, but as you are having the swelling since many days better to get examined once to find out the possible cause and treatment can be taken accordingly.



Take care.
