Hello,

Have you used any new soap/bathing products?  Are you on any medications, anti-biotics, etc.?  I guess if your Mom won't take you to the doctors, which is what I would suggest, keep a close eye on it.  If it gets worse let her know right away.  I wouldn't put anything on it at this point since you don't know what it is.  Try and keep the area clean and dry.  Good luck :)

It's probably either a yeast infection or an ingrown hair that's become infected. Both very common and nothing to worry about. If you're afraid to go to the doctor, go to a pharmacy and get some over the counter yeast infection medicine. Buy the cream form, not the ovules since you say it's mostly your outer labia. Put the cream on the area that's red and swollen and se if it helps. If it's yeast, you'll notice it getting better within a day. If it doesn't get better, you probably should see your doctor as much as you dread it!
