Hello. I have had swelling on one side of my vagina for three days now. I'm not too positive if its just from a yeast infection or if its more severe.

Hello. I have had swelling on one side of my vagina for three days now. I'm not too positive if its just from a yeast infection or if its more severe.

Genital swelling: Yeast infection wouldn't usually cause one sided genital symptoms. If the swelling is painful, and especially if there are open sores, herpes is likely. See a doctor ASAP -- the sooner the better for accurate diagnosis. Also, if it's herpes, treatment effectiveness depends on starting treatment right away. Good luck! ...Read more

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.

Saturday AM, shaved vaginal area, and had rash with redness and swelling by lunch time, itches and burns when touch just on 1 side of labia, what?

Razor "burn": When a close shave of any area on the body is done with a dull razor or without shaving cream, skin cells are exfoliated and injury to the underlying dermis causes a red itchy rash. Unfortunately, this has occurred to your labia and because you are dominant with either your left or right hand, the opposite labia in your non dominant hand got the brunt of the "injury". ...Read more
