Please help, i am not at peace. I think i may have scratched(with my nails ) and caused a little cut on my clitoris. It is red, a little painful and itchy. it also has this bump or kind of swelling on one side. this has been so for about a day now. I am really worried and uncomfortable. I can t sit or walk normally. Is it something serious. Will it heal on its own? what natural remedies can i use to help with the swelling, itch and pain? please, please help :(

Clitoris is a very sensitive area , richly supplied by sensory nerves &blood. Naturally an injury makes it very much painful & inflamed too.
Usually observing local hygine & and care heals it in 3-4 days. For this you should-
- Keep the part clean/dry.
- apply antibiotic ointment & flucanozole ointment( in case of itching++) mixed in equal proportion ,after each gentle cleaning.
-An anti inflammatory drug like ibuprofen-paracetmol can be taken after food . -Take nutritive food with fruits,salads,lemon,vegetables.
- In case of no relief/infection you have to consult a doctor who can advice after local examination.
Thank you..

Hi , thanks for using healthcare magic

Trauma to any part of the body can result in swelling, this would include any trauma to the clitoris.
The swelling will resolve.

To reduce your discomfort you can consider the use of anti inflammatory pain killers such as aspirin, ibuprofen, diclofenac.
In addition sitz baths would also help relieve some of the discomfort. This can be done 2 to 3 times a day for 10 to 15 minutes using warm water (not hot).

I hope this helps

Thanks for the query to H.C.M. Forum.
Due to scratching you got injury ( as clitoris is a very soft part) and afterward infection.
Don't be in panic , just get Doxycyclin 200 mg with water 2-3 days, once in day .
Aceclofinac 200 mg 1-1 for 2 days.
This is complete treatment .
Good luck.
