Hi dear and thanks for your query.

Do you have cheese like discharges ?

Do you have burning urination or burning during intercourse?
Is this the first time you have these signs?
Do you have lower abdominal discomfort or pain?
Left labia minora is not swollen?

Please tell me these details and I will try to help you.

I do not have a cheese-like discharge.
No itching - just a burning sensation. Which is made worse by intercourse and urination. However, the burning is only in the area of inflammation (right side). I have had this happen before and it generally goes away on it's own. But I woke up this morning and it felt a bit worse than yesterday. I have no abdominal pain. And the swelling is only the right labia minora.
Thank you!

Brief Answer:
it may be a Bartholinitis

Detailed Answer:
Hi again and thanks for trusting to us.

While you have a swollen with burning sensation in only one part and it has passed by itself, in my opinion it may be a bartholinitis or a swollen of a bartholinis gland .
But diagnosis can be done by seeing the affected area .
If you want you can upload a picture of affected area.

To relive this discomfort you can try with Sitz baths adding betadine but if you will be worse than you my need for a prescription.
