Can recurrent UTIs cause edema of the Labia?

Labial swelling: Swelling of the labia is most often caused by sexual activity if it is on both sides, or a vaginal infection, not a "UTI". A prolonged vaginal infection with bacteria or yeast can cause labial swelling. See your healthcare provider for an exam and evaluation. ...Read more

Edema (Definition)

Fluid in the tissues, either caused by something local to the swollen area like an injury or inflammation, or from the body's retention of water. Gravity brings the fluid to the feet & legs in that case. As a general rule, if one foot is swollen, something is wrong with the foot. If both feet are swollen, it's not the feet, but water ...Read more

25 m.Got uti. After that my right testicle started to swell n pain. It was epididymo orchitis. Aftr meds. The pain has gone but painless swelling isnt.

See answer: The usually course of epididymo-orchitis, once treatment has begun, is that the pain and discomfort usually resolve or markedly improve within the first 2-3 weeks of antibiotics but reduction in swelling takes much longer usually in the range of 6-12 weeks and sometimes never quite returns to its pre-infection size. ...Read more

I Am on antibitocs for a uti and I noticed some swelling and have been feeling irritated on the lips on my vagina what do I do?

Possible yeast: Sometimes we can develop a yeast infection from being on antibiotics and this can create labial swelling and irritation. This can be treated with monostat 3 or 7 day. Alternatively, if the swelling and irritation occurred before starting the antibiotics, the bacteria infecting the bladder might also be infecting the skin of the vulva. In this case, the antibiotic should resolve the infection. ...Read more

Few possibilities: It appears that you have seen your doctor. Left flank pain may indicate a kidney problem therefore I suggest a sonogram of the kidneys. Itching in the vagina is generally due to candida infection. There is no harm in trying a course of over the counter Monistat7 vaginal cream. Stay in contact with your doctor and tell him about my suggestions ...Read more

Arm swelling & pain due to levaquin? On 2/17 went to the ER for what I thought was the flu, turned out to be a bad uti. Got an IV of meds and sent home w/ them. They didn't work so I ws back sunday and given levaquin. Few days later my arm started to ge

It: It sounds like you suffered a "blown" vein from the iv. A vein could have possibly been nicked an eventually became "blown out" over time, which could result in your symptoms. Also consider a possible reaction from the tape that was used to keep the IV in place. It is unlikely a reaction from the levaquin, (levofloxacin) you would have had a more diffuse reaction (not localized to just one arm).
Hopefully you are better by now, if not see your doctor.
Take care. ...Read more

What can cause a 16 month old girl to cry and hold her vaginal area?  doc won't test for UTI since no other symptoms. No redness or swelling in area

Vulvovaginitis: Inflammation in the vaginal area is known as vulvovaginitis. It can be caused by chemical irritants, bacterial/yeast infections, trauma, etc. A mild non-chemical cleanser (colloidal oatmeal, aveeno) and acidifying the bath water (vinegar) may help calm the irritation and promote healthy protective bacteria. If she has a fever or vomiting, ruling out a UTI would be reasonable. ...Read more

Have CKD stage 3-Had UTI 1 mth ago went fine, now bad hip and low back pain goes up to the neck no swelling or fever, could be related to my kidneys?

Too complicated. .: Your symptoms may or may not be related. However, since you have CKD at the age of 48 yrs, I would anticipate that you have other medical problems as well. Unfortunately, this is really not the correct forum to try to tease out the cause of your symptoms-I would expect that you already have a Nephrologist as well as an internist/family doctor. PLEASE contact them for further evaluation. Best of luck ...Read more

Gynecomastia: There are medications that can cause gynecomasia, as well as excessive use of cannabis. Teen age boys often have some, and sometimes it does not regress with adulthood. Excessive estrogen is a very rare cause. Gynecomastia needs to be distinguished from obesity. Supplements are not your answer. See your doctor. ...Read more
