Is it normal for my baby to have swollen genitals?

Is it normal for my baby to have swollen genitals?

Yes: Newborns often have swollen genitals from mom's hormones and sometimes related to the trauma of coming through the birth canal. Older babies should not have swollen genitals. Suddenly swollen genitals in combination with fussiness or definite pain should be considered a medical emergency.

Could be a hernia: If your baby is not in severe pain, you can contact your doctor's office to schedule a routine appointment to have it checked out. If your son is having pain, vomiting or any other worrisome symptoms, it's best to be seen right away. Hernias may present as a bulge in the groin and that condition can be diagnosed by a physical exam. Sometimes the bulging comes and goes, but best to call your doctor.

Is it normal for an 11 year old girl's genitals to be swollen/enlarged? She has not started her period but is developing.

Is it normal for an 11 year old girl's genitals to be swollen/enlarged? She has not started her period but is developing.

Hard to say: Your description is vague and may or may not be accurate enough to say what is happening. The inner lips of a girl may grow quite a bit during puberty, from a minimum or "innie" appearance to major "outie" look. One side can be larger than the other. If the tissue is actually swollen, and not just different, it deserves an evaluation by the doc.

I woke up this morning with swollen  lips, eyes and nose, swollen genitals, and flat, itchy red circles on my face and body. What could it be?

Angioedema & hives: You likely have a case of angioedema plus hives. A drug reaction or a viral infection would be my guess. Try antihistamine. But if you have any problem breathing at all, rush to the ER.

Hello, I remember being in contact with poison oak. Now my lips are very itchy, also, my genitals feels really itchy, and its swollen....
It's embarra?

May need to be seen: Put some over-the-counter hydrocortisone on for now, perhaps under plastic wrap. If you have any trouble breathing or aren't able to sleep, get seen. I'm going to assume that this is due to your exposure to the leaves.

Can a painful hemorroid cause swollen genital lymphnoids?

Usually not: But an abscess around the anus which can resemble a hemorrhoid, can cause inguinal adenopathy indicating an infection. This requires urgent diagnosis and treatment.

See a doctor: Condoms do not protect you from all types of infection, but they are effective at protecting from HIV and hepatitis. What you're experiencing could be something serious, and prompt medical evaluation is indicated. Herpes does not usually cause swollen glands alone, and it is not a common reason for bleeding after sex.

Near zero: This kind of contact is very unlikely to transmit hiv. Husbands of infected wives, during the old days before effective treatment, seldom turned positive even after years of unprotected sex. I am glad you asked. If you care for one another, it would be a good thing to both get tested.

Cortisone cream: Try hydrocortisone cream but if not helpful after a couple of days. consult a doctor. If condom has been used, considered latex allergy but allergy to semen is also another possibility.

Get seen: I suspect that you've become allergic to this stuff ("herbal remedies" are often not what they're labeled as). Please stop using this or other "pop" remedies, and get with your personal physician. You don't want to get a nasty secondary infection down there.

Epididymitis?: I guess "left genital" means your testicle, right? It sounds like you probably have epididymitis, an infection in the testicle. Chlamydia and gonorrhea are the most common causes in people under age 30-35, but non-STD infections are the main cause in older men and many younger ones as well. See a doctor ASAP; an antibiotic prescription may be urgently need to save your testicle. Good luck!

Can primary genital herpes present with one swollen inguinal node with no other symptoms? No lesions, discharge, itching, etc. Doc visit saw nothing.

Very unlikely: Initial genital herpes can cause inguinal node inflammation, but rarely a single node. Almost always bilateral and preceded by obvious genital lesions etc. Isolated inguinal lymphadenopathy is usually due to inflammation of the leg on the same side, often as minor as an ingrown toenail. Cat scratch disease is a common cause in cat owners. See doctor if painful, persists 2+ days, or if any fever.
