Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

There might be small abrasion or cuts, which lead to inflammation and caused the symptoms. Nothing much to worry and you can apply Mupirocin ointments and it will resolve in couple of days. You can take analgesics, like Ibuprofen or Acetaminophen along with anti inflammatory drugs, like Serratiopeptidase for symptomatic relief. In case of signs of infection, antibiotics has to be started.

Wishing you good health.

Hello. I am 33 years old and sexually active. In the past year sometimes when I have sex I bleed, but it never continues afterwards, just directly afterwards. I had my son 6 years ago, and since then I sometimes get boils and sores near my vagina, I had many stitches. Now 1 of my labia is very tender and swollen, it feels very dry but I can t feel a sore, cut or anything. It does not hurt if I insert my finger.

I was hit by a car door on Sat and badly bruised my labia. It is black and blue and swollen and there is a quarter size that is hard. Doesn t hurt to pee or walk, only to sit directly on it, but is it ok to walk the dog 3x day for 20 min each? Also, I was going to walk to the T station (15 min away) to see my husband finish the boston marathon. Rest, or is this bit of walking ok? Also, should I be taking aspirin for swelling?
