About a half a year ago, I accidentally sat on something and it hurt down there. My left labia minora was really red and swollen. I was thirteen and I didn't want to bring it up to my mom. I just happed to look at it, now, it is wrinkly, purple/black, and looks like it has been stretched (3 times bigger than the other side). It doesn't hurt, but it bothers me when I wear tight underwear or swimsuits. Should I cut it off? Any way to make it less swollen? Medicine? It's been like this for a while.... Please help!
Hello, While I know it is embarrassing, you should see a doctor, OBGYN, and be evaluated. You may also ask you mother to look at the area. From your description this may not be normal and you should not treat it yourself.
