Swelling: Itching and swelling of the vagina can be seen with a yeast infection or, in your case could be a reaction to the cream you applied. If you're having associated vaginal discharge a vaginal infection is likely. If no discharge, discontinue any creams and apply warm water compresses. Avoid tight underwear or jeans. See your physician if symptoms don't improve or if there is a discharge. ...Read more

Vaginal swelling: Trauma, infection, irritation from ointments and soaps, allergy to semen, and rough or prolonged intercourse have all been reported as potential causes of vaginal swelling with sex.

Hey I had a swollen vagina nd it was. Extremely itchy. There was a clear discharge nd I treated it with gynotran and mupirocin cause it was burning wh?

Wrong treatments...: ...and my guess is they didn't help much. Your symptoms were typical for a yeast infection, maybe genital herpes, and possibly other STDs like gonorrhea or chlamydia. None of these would respond to either of these treatments, and delaying proper treatment could cause big problems. You should see a doctor or clinic ASAP for professional examination, testing, and proper treatment. Good luck! ...Read more

In the meantime analgesia like paracetamol and ibuprofen will help but also running hot soapy water as often as it is convenient and should help. You should let a doctor take a look at it. ...Read more
