Swollen labia majora, painful when sitting. Any thoughts?

Hi. My left labia majora seems more swollen & thicker than my right one. First time i noticed it was when i put on a tampon . It swelled so much and hurt even when just sitting. I used to use the same brand of tampons with no issues. I stopped using them now & started using pads. Left labia still feels thicker & bigger than right but doesnt hurt anymore. Any thoughts?

hi there
i think you need to show it to your gynaecologist for a proper examination only can rule out if there is any abscess or not.with history it looks like more of an abscess collection which with time has fibrosed down.cause being an infection because of the tampoon and abrasions leading to invasion of bacteria..
wish u good health
