welcome to healthcaremagic
you may be having infection and need gynaecological check up and treatment and in these cases both the partners should take treatment
and abstinence till the infection cleared
better to use condome to prevent cross infection in future
simple cleaning with clean water is enough after sex as normal discharges are supposed to be sterile

The antibiotics to be taken will be decided after examining locally dear. the dose & type of medicines will be according to severity of the problem .So be agood girl &seek dr's advice soon .sooner the treatment,lesser will be the suffering.
no specific dietary advice for pain relief.
Now as you have swelling & pain &discharge,you should clean it with warm water with dettol or savalon. at the time of bath,&every time after toilet,+mob it dry .you should avoid sex till cured.
Routinely the same cleaning regime to be followed with clean water,even after sex.cleanliness of both partners is a must.Doushes should not be done unless medically indicated.
