I’m 16 it’s very painful there’s no discharge there is burning during urination there’s 1 lump standing out a bit in the vagina area
But the whole thing is very big, I’m currently on the pill and I took Panadol and a thrush pill
Doctor: Onlinedoc, Doctor replied 7 months ago

Thanks for the follow-up.
I understand your concern.

As per your description, the most common cause of this happening is vaginal dryness.

If there is not enough vaginal moisture during intercourse, the labia minora experience a great deal of friction and eventually inflammation and possibly trauma depending on how long the intercourse went on and how moisture was lacking.

Such swelling can be Bartholin gland cyst formation.

Now I would advise you some self-care remedies which you can try.

Warm water sitz bath with an antiseptic solution for 15 minutes twice a day.

An application of OTC 0.5% hydrocortisone cream with Polysporin cream.

Wear loose-fitting cotton fabric panties.

Take OTC Advil and Allegra for 3-5 days.

Abstain from sexual activities for a week.

Use a lubricant to reduce friction during sex.
Add yogurt (with live active cultures) and probiotics contain Lactobaccillis acidophilus such as RepHresh.

Also, a product called Boric Acid vaginal suppositories will help too.

Stay away from perfumed detergents, soaps, and feminine products.

Don’t douche.

Maintain a good hydration.

If your symptoms persist then see your gynecologist for a clinical exam.

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.
