Question: Hi. I'm a 27 year old female. I had oral sex around 10 days back. About a week later, my labia minora, especially the clitoris part was a bit itchy and sore. In a couple of days an area on the right of the clitoris became very sore and the left side got a tiny swelling which is now sore and white in colour. It is still sore and hurts when I pee

Brief Answer:
Sitz bath

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

I understand your concerns.

This pain is temporary due to trauma caused during oral sex.

This pain goes away after the wound heals within a few days. There is nothing to worry.

Use sitz bath meanwhile. Sit in a small vessel containing warm water, salt and disinfectant. This helps to bring relief.

Let me know if you need anymore help.

Hey. I've been doing as you advised. It's working, I believe. Thank you! It has turned red from white and is still a bit sore. So, should I continue with the Sitz bath?
