Have itchy clitoris,swelling, anxiety. What is wrong?

I called my gyno today about a problem i have had with my clitoris for about a week now. It is somewhat itchy and a little bit swollen. I have recently bought new underwear and i wore one of the pairs before washing them. I talked to the nurse and told her everything and she said she would have the doctor call me back. He called me back and said it was hard to tell what he wants to do over the phone and that i should come in. He told me to come in at 8:30 am and he could squeeze me in. I felt relieved that I was going to get an answer at first but now my anxiety has gotten the best of me and I am wondering if the fact that he told me to come in the next day.... is that a really bad sign? I am scared it means something really bad and I am getting nervous.

Thanks for the query.
If you are having only itching and swelling, that could be allergic reaction the material of the inner wear or it could be due to some infection.
As you are not having symptoms like discharge, bleeding etc. no need to worry.
Possibly your doctor may wanted to reexamine once or he may wants to take a swab for culture and sensitivity.
So you discuss clearly this time with him to find out the exact nature of the problem and take treatment accordingly.
For more details you can ask me through:
Take care.
