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 had unprotected oral sex with a girl I met at a party 5 days ago. She performed fellatio on me. The very next day I had a slight burning sensation at the tip of my penis. This got much worse the next day and so I sought out a doctor who suggested it was likely a fungal infection of the urethra caused by an infection in the girls mouth. I am booked to have an STD check after two weeks have elapsed just to check if it s something like chlamydia or gonorrhea. The burning sensation is nearly gone after two days of anti fungal medication and I have had no burning while peeling or discharge and my urine is clear. Does the diagnosis sound correct to you? Thanks
