Swelling on labia majora and minora, pains to touch and has hardened on specific portion. Cause?

My left labia majora and minora are both very swollen. Plus, it s very painful when I walk or put on clothing. It s also painful to the touch and hardened on one specific area of the major. This started up mid day yesterday out of no where. I had not had sex since over 48 hours prior. I started using antifungal creams but I can t tell if it s helping or not and it s extremely painful.

hi karina
am dr.surendiran
nice to meet you here in HCMagic
the swelling in labia would be a boil or cyst ,in order to prevent further spread of the infection.
1 Keep the area clean and apply some topical antiseptics. Also wear loose-fitting cotton clothing and use an antibacterial soap or mild soap ,that help to relieve your pain.
2 Avoid any kind of cosmetics. Topical antibiotics such as mupirocin or neomycin containing ointment are also useful.
3In case the symptoms persist then oral antibiotics may be needed. Please consult a gynecologist in that case.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided.
hope helped your query
