I don't know what caused this. I was itching and scratching and then all of a sudden my labia is swollen and hard, both sides. I've tried googling and most talk about some B-word cyst but it doesn't look like that. It's closer to my clit and urethra than my vagina.
I took photos but I'm not sure if I'm allowed to post them here. I can't find anything that looks like it on the internet; I can e-mail you photos if you think that would help. I'm really worried. It doesn't hurt but it's very uncomfortable and weird.
I've got the same problem right now, but only one side. I've been googling it for days but have no idea.
I also think I have a Bartholin cyst or a periclitoral abscess, but that's been around since I was 16 and now I'm 23, and just kind of appears then disappears and then reappears randomly. (and I've been googling that for years too)
I just experienced this same thing after feeling some irritation, gave a few good scratches a bam, one side is so swollen and kinda hard. Talk about weird and kinda scary! I've googled also and noticed that it may be a yeast infection or bacterial infection and by scratching the area, it can spread the infection and can cause the swelling to occur. I've been icing it and it doesn't appear to reduce the swelling...not sure what else to try other than going to bed and hoping it reduces before morning. I'm still getting into the doc to get tests done to be sure on what this is. Good luck!
I have the same problem right now. Did the swelling go down for you girls after a few days? I think I've had this before where I scratched and it just blew up. But this time there was no scratching. I just noticed a little bit of pain down there and when I looked my right labia was swollen. I already took one epsom salt bath and it may have help for a little bit but now its just getting bigger. I also took some benadryl but that just made me pass out. I also have a cold. Ugh. Whats wrong with me? I don't have med insurance but maybe I can go to plan parenthood and have one of their doctors take a look.
ok so i just notived this about an hour ago...
i just started itching really badly and it was baaaaaaaaddd...
then i went to my room to change into night cloths and felt hot and i '
checked myself and immediately freaked....i went to the bathroom and looked it
