Labia minora is inflamed and hard. Is there any treatment to reduce the swelling ?

Right side of my labia minoria is inflamed. It was itchy last night, I scratched like crazy and put vagisil on it. This morning I woke up and my right labia was huge and when touched, felt hard. I am 17 years old and am sexually active but have not had sex for a month. Last time I went to the doctor (about two months ago), I was free of any STDs but a few months ago I had a yeast infection followed by BV. Right now, I m having no symptoms but the itchy labia (no weird colored discharge, odor, burning). What is wrong and is there anything I can do to reduce the swelling for now (ice it perhaps) ?

Hi
Welcome to health care magic
swollen labia minor a indicate some infection with inflammation .As itching was there ,so fungal infection super-added by bacterial infection appear to be the sole reason.As you are sexually active ,so get in touch with gynec to get investigated & treated without any delay,.there is no harm in applying ice packs ,but only ice packs are not going to cure the ailment.

The day after having sex I started to feel slight pain while at work and then realized that night that my right labia minor is inflamed and not very painful but uncomfortable, its also a bit hard. Could this be a cyst or just caused from too much friction? Should I be concerned?

I have a 'pimply' penis head. the skin on the head itself looks wrinkled too. This is not its usual 'look' and have noticed it since being cleared of gonorrhea . I have been tested and cleared of all stds. I have also used an antifungal cream prescibed by my GP which has reduced the redness of the pimples only - but they are still there. I have no irratation from it.

Hello. I have a concern. I am allergic to an over the counter medication called Flanax. Everytime I take it my eyes and mouth swell up. The swealling in my mouth is so bad that I get blisters after the swealling comes down. My eyes get really dry and itchy. The weird thing is that it gets red right under the clitoris and irritated. I took Aleve a couple days ago without knowing I was going to have the same reaction. Its really irritated under the clitoris again. I been to the doctor and they don t find anything wrong. I been tested for STDs and I don t have any. This only happens to me when I drink that medication. Its has antiinflamatory on the label. I notiiced the pills are always a light blue color. I try to avoid them but I never thought I would have that reaction with Aleve aswell. My doctor gave me yeast infection medication. I just don t get a clear answer everytime I go to the Dr. I am worried it could be something else and not showing up in the boold work. The sensation I get is a tingling around my eyes and mouth and starts getting red after 30 minutes to an hour after drinking the pill. I just want a different opinion please. I only get like this when I drink that and my main concern is in the vagina or under the clitoris

My wife is 73 and has dementia and I am applying the estrace crème every day at the request of the GYN for vaginal atrophy and constant burning during and after urinating. Her behavior changes and she becomes more aggressive so I have lessened application to every other day. We go back to the GYN on Monday. Any suggestions as to how to proceed. The DR has tested for various STDs which turned up negative.
