This answer was rated:

The left side of my mons pubis is swollen and squishy. I really don't have any pain but could possibly have a yeast infection. I have had yeast infections before but have never had any swelling. Are the two related?

Hello,

mysticdoc :

Thanks for your question.

mysticdoc :

Yeast infection can cause mons pubis swelling --redness also should be present.

mysticdoc :

Another possibility can be allergic reaction to detergent or soap as possibile explanation.

Customer:

I don't see any redness but I do have some vaginal discharge

mysticdoc :

ok --any itchiness or burning?

Customer:

No itchiness, tiny amount of burning

mysticdoc :

ok

mysticdoc :

white discharge?

Customer:

Yes

mysticdoc :

ok

mysticdoc :

yeast infection is likely then.

Customer:

The swelling part is scary I have never experienced that before. So with treatment the swelling should go away?

mysticdoc :

yes it should.

Customer:

Ok I will try that. I was going to go to the emergency room but I do not have any pain so I felt weird about going.

mysticdoc :

you can see your doctor in regular hours.

Customer:

Awesome, thank you so much.

mysticdoc :

you can try over the counter antifungal medication like Monistat

Customer:

What dosage do you recommend I have tried the 1, 3 and 7 day and I don't think the 1 day works very well.

mysticdoc :

3 day is better

Customer:

I will do that then. Thank you again, I was pretty scared.

mysticdoc :

very welcome

mysticdoc :

Best wishes,
