Need to examine: What you described does not fit with a mosquito bite. If it does not heal in 3-4 days, it would be prudent to see a doctor. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Drink enough water daily so that your urine is mostly colorless. Practice safe sex. ...Read more

I was fingered rough last night. I looked I'm the mirror and my labia minors was extremely swollen, hard & red. It hasn't gone down. What should I do?

I was fingered rough last night. I looked I'm the mirror and my labia minors was extremely swollen, hard & red. It hasn't gone down. What should I do?

If the swelling does not go down or seems to worsen you need to be seen as I would be worried about an infection. And seriously that type of sex is abusive and you need to take pictures and notify the authorities so on second thought go be seen right now at an ER! ...Read more
