Customer Question
I’m not sure what’s...

I’m not sure what’s going on. A few days ago I shaved and now my vag lip is swollen on one side with a small cut. It had a tiny pimple but I popped it. It’s happebex once or twice before, what is it?

Doctor's Assistant: Any recent injuries? How long have you been dealing with the swelling?

Just a day or two

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

About two years ago I was sexually assaulted and had some vagina issues from it, but I was tested for a punch of STDs and they were all negative.

Hello,

Welcome and thank you for your question.

Your symptoms suggest that you cut the skin while shaving and it is now infected.

It is likely that the cut initially was quite small. But the infection is making it more visible and the skin and tissues around it to become swollen.

Please apply a warm pack on the area for 4-5 minutes twice a day. Then apply neosporin or triple bacteria cream twice daily. You can also take Motrin to decrease the inflammation.

If this has been occurring repeatedly, you will need to get blood tests for the level of hemoglobin and blood sugar in your blood. These may increase your risks of getting an infection.

I hope this helps.
Let me know if you need more information.

Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
