Labia minora is swollen, painful and radiates. Noticed 3 hard and painful areas, are pimple like colour red. What could be?
Thanks for writing to us.
Labia minora swelling may be because of irritation(because of tight clothing) or because of bartholin cyst(sebaceous gland). Your swelling is painful, radiating to left and blue in color you should consult a gynecologist immediately because it may turn into abscesses for which you need abscess drainage and good antibiotic coverage.
You can use ice packs, sitz bath(lukewarm water),cream application and some antiinflammatory drug(to reduce inflammation) and antibiotic while you get your doctor appointment.
Hope I have answered your query.If you have any further questions I will be happy to help.
