Past few weeks around the opening of my vagina has felt

Customer Question

For the past few weeks around the opening of my vagina has felt irritated and almost a bit swollen. It's a very uncomfortable feeling. I don't have burning during urination, abnormal discharge or an odor. Everything appear h normal to me. I'm not thinking
STD because my husband and I have been married five years and he is deployed most of the year. When he is home we use condoms for birth control. Does this sound serious and can it be treated in urgent care before I get to my obg/yn?
