Itching can also be caused by allergic reactions and other skin conditions so you need to have a complete evaluation. ...Read more

I'm in such pain, does that mean my labia is swollen due to infection?

Labial swelling: This is nothing to fool with and would recommend you see a doctor asap especially if you have a fever>101.5f /38.6c.

In the meantime, a yeast infection can cause redness and irritation to the labia minor and areas surrounding. Typically a topical anti-fungal starts working within hours to relieve pain and itching. ...Read more
