Very painful sores on inner vaginal lips and lower part is swollen. Could I be allergic to the condom-Trojan, friction burn, etc? 100% not herpes

Very painful sores on inner vaginal lips and lower part is swollen. Could I be allergic to the condom-Trojan, friction burn, etc? 100% not herpes

Herpes still likely: Latex allergy (i.e. condom) is possible not not likely; usually itching, not open sores. Other allergic reactions; rare disorders like Behcet's disease; some non-STD viruses; others. But why so certain it isn't herpes? That's by far the most common cause of such symptoms, even among persons who are "sure" their partners couldn't have it. See your doctor and follow her advice. Good luck! ...Read more

I have no had intercourse for 3 days and woke up the morning noticing my inside labia lips were sore and slightly red. The do no no medications or treatment yet

This: This could be secondary to an infectious process. Often times yeast and bacterial vaginal infections as well as std's can cause the symptoms you describe. In addition allergic reactions secondary to new soaps, lubricants, etc. Can do the same thing.
My advice is for you, is to have a visit with your doctor if the problem is still present.
Best of luck. ...Read more

I saw my gyn he said everything was ok but why are my vaginal lips always red & a lil swollen? Don't burn. What can I use to help it o.t.c.

I saw my gyn he said everything was ok but why are my vaginal lips always red & a lil swollen? Don't burn. What can I use to help it o.t.c.

Maybe all OK. Yeast?: Since your gyn thought everything is OK, my guess is you're looking too closely and nothing is wrong. A yeast infection comes to mind, and can easily be missed on routine exam. OTOH, yeast is unlikely without burning, irritation, or itching, etc. But ask your gyn whether it would be worth trying an OTC vaginal yeast treatment. Most likely it won't help, but probably no harm to try. Good luck! ...Read more

What could swollen itchy vaginal lips mean? No discharge nor odor.

Inflammation: Swelling of the vaginal lips is usually caused by some inflammatory reaction. Possibly from rough sex, or a new cream that may have gotten close to the lips causing the swelling (for example a cream used to shave the area, etc). If it continues, see the GYN for an evaluation of the area. Best wishes to you. ...Read more

Infection: Often this is a sign of a typical yeast infection. See a doctor for this diagnosis, or try otc anti-fungal and see if cream and suppository make feel better. Other ideas are bacterial infections. Lastly vulvodynia is a pain syndrome that some women have. Speak with your doctor re this if infections have been ruled out. Good luck! ...Read more

Could be: Certainly this could be a cyst, but there are other possibilities as well. Would be best to get seen and know for sure. You might require antibiotics or other medication to make it go away more quickly. See a physician experienced in gynecology whether an OB/ GYN or family physician.
