Cool compress: Just like when there is trauma to any part of your body, cool compresses are the best thing immediately to reduce swake a bag of frozen peas and wrap them in a towel and place them on the injured labia. Tylenol (acetaminophen) for pain. Rest if you can and i'd avoid intercourse/activity down there for 48-72 hours. Alternative is a cool bath if you can stand to sit in that!

Bedrest and ice: Bed rest-off feet-ice compresses. If no better in 48 hrs, see your doctor. Take something for pain too.
