i’m 17 years, i don’t suffer from pain but it’s very uncomfortable. I do have vaginal discharge, no burning during urination nor lump formation and i’m on birth control.
OB GYN Doctor: Onlinedoc, Doctor replied 6 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.

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

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

An application of OTC 0.5% hydrocortisone cream with Lotrimin 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 in your diet.

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

Don’t douche.

If your vaginal discharge is getting thick, itching then anti-fungal medicines can be required.

thank you very much and how long do you think it’ll take for the swelling to reduce. Also forgot to mention the labia is a bit red. In addition do you think i could have a yeast infection?
OB GYN Doctor: Onlinedoc, Doctor replied 6 months ago

Thank you for replying back.

Your symptoms will relieve in few days to a week if you continue such remedies.

If you have a cottage cheese like thick discharge and intense itching then it can be a yeast infection.

Still, I have advised you to use OTC Lotrimin cream for a safe side.

Don't miss probiotic along with it.

I hope this answers your question. If you would like to discuss this further or have any additional questions, please reply to my answer and I will get right back to you.

The tip of my labia minora is dry and itches when it comes in contact with anything
OB GYN Doctor: Onlinedoc, Doctor replied 6 months ago

Thank you for replying back.

It is due to inflammation.

And cool water sitz bath and Hydrocortisone cream would help you in this case.
