Hi, Welcome to Healthcare Magic Forum,
You are having a Minor inflammation in the area. You can take Tab. Brufen 400mg twice daily for 3 days and apply heat pads thrice daily. This should help you. If it doesn't improve even after week, you should have yourself examined by a Gynecologist. Take Care.

Internal Medicine Specialist Dr. Jasvinder Singh's  Response
Welcome to HealthcareMagic. From the symptoms it looks like the friction rub or chafing during intercourse has caused this swelling of labia especially if intercourse was done with less lubrication. The other reason can be an allergic reaction to soaps, detergents, shower gel and condoms etc. Apply cold compresses and wear cotton undergarments. Application of mild corticosteroid cream and oral antiinflammatories like ibuprofen/acetaminophen are also helpful. If the symptoms persist then consult a gynecologist.

Hope it helps you. Regards.
