Genital swelling: Yeast infection wouldn't usually cause one sided genital symptoms. If the swelling is painful, and especially if there are open sores, herpes is likely. See a doctor ASAP -- the sooner the better for accurate diagnosis. Also, if it's herpes, treatment effectiveness depends on starting treatment right away. Good luck!
