Brief Answer:
Possible allergic reaction to monistat

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for the query.
Sometimes monistat can cause allergic reactions.
And that can present with swelling of the genital area, pain, itching etc.
So better to consult gynecologist as early as possible and get examined to find out the exact cause of the problem and get treated.
Analgesic tablets may not help in decreasing all the symptoms of allergic reaction.
