perineum swollen and painful....................
i have had a baby almost a year ago and after the birth of my daughter, i had some tearing along hte fold of my vagina. i didn't tear or need sutures after the birth. But i developed these tears, paper cut looking........i have a hx of herpes, so automatically my ob took a culture, but it came back negative. So, now my perineum is swollen, i thought i had an outbreak, but there's nothing, i've taken valtrex, but i don't think its an outbreak since it's not getting better, the swelling is getting worse and hurts.......my husband says dont' worry, but he's not the one who hurts during sex and is SWOLLEN afterwards. Help, i need help!!!!

Sounds like you may have a yeast infection.

You will need to be seen by a doctor.  Can be a variety of other things such as Bacterial Vaginosis.

BV doesn't cause that kind of pain.

A trip to a good gyn does sound in order though. You should not be experiencing pain or swelling in that area.  Maybe low estrogen, or some other skin condition having to do with whacked out hormones after giving birth.
