HI, thanks for using healthcare magic

The fact that the symptoms occurred acutely makes it unlikely to be any serious or life threatening so it would be ok to be assessed.

It is more likely an allergic response or mild infection.

Treatment with a topical agent may be enough eg canesten, gyno lotrimin, vagistat or monistat.
Applying a mild topical steroid cream for 2 to 3 days , twice daily, would also be helpful eg hydrocortisone

I hope this helps
