Get evaluated: All those lumps and bumps could be nothing or could be something. Very hard to advice without looking at it. You need to be seen by a gynecologist to be able to determine if this is something to be worried about.

Allergy vs Infection: Your symptoms could be do to a vaginal infection, like Candida or an allergic/irritant reaction to something topical, like latex condoms, creams, gels or nonoxynl-9. See your clinician for an examination and possible tests to confirm your diagnosis, and prescribe appropriate treatment.

Possible infection: Swelling around the inner lips of the vagina could sometimes be a result of cyst or infection that can be easily treated by your GYN or in the emergency room.

See your doctor: Sounds like possibly an abscess. The treatment often includes drainage (it sounds like this is already spontaneously happening) and oral antibiotics. See your doctor. Take Care

Probable yeast inf.: In the absence of chafing from intercourse or prolonged use of a pad, for ex. A likely cause of this is a yeast infection. If this persists you may want to try an anti yeast cream. If your symptoms persist, consider a gyn evaluation. Good luck.

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) usually causes itching but not "painful sores" -- possible but unlikely. Why so certain it isn't herpes? That's by far the most common cause such symptoms, and most herpes is from partners they are "sure" don't have it. Don't put your head in the sand: see a doctor familiar with STDs and herpes and get tested. Also have your partner (s) checked for HSV.

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.

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 that nothing is wrong. A yeast infection come to mind, and can 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!

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.

Why are some vaginal lips more swollen than others?

Why are some vaginal lips more swollen than others?

Unique: Why do some people have larger noses than others? There is variability in all of our bodies. Difference in the fullness of labia does not mean that there is a problem.

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!
