Welcome to Healthcaremagic
Thanks for your query
It looks like you have an allergic reaction to the antibiotics you are taking. As labia is a soft tissue, one may find congestion and fullness of this part to start with. You should stop the medicine, consult your doctor and you may be prescribed antiallergics (antihistaminics) to decrease the congestion of tissues.
