Hi, Dr. Stan here to help you today. This is not caused by an STD. You most likely have irritation from the scratching. Apply an ice pack to your labia (lips). Also apply 1% hydrocortisone cream just to the outside of your labia, 2 times daily. If you have it, Benadryl cream will also help with the itching. You can get it at any pharmacy without a prescription. If the swelling/itching is not gone in 48 hours, a visit to your Gynecologist is recommended.

I am here to answer any additional questions you may have. Thank you for allowing me to provide assistance. I hope your medical problem(s) are resolved soon and you feel better. We are credited only after you give a positive rating of 3-5 stars for the information I provided. Thank you.
