I would first identify the cause prior to blindly treati g withou knowing more. For example is this a tumor? Hernia? Metaplasia from chronic trauma? Is it lymphatic or vascular congestion? Positional? Work related? Congenital? Constrictive due to garment wear? Due to bone, skin, fat, nerves, vessels?, etc. Meet with your gynecologist for an examination

Treatment swollen labia?

Why?

Vulva
The issue is what is causing the labial edema. Until you know this it defies logic to recommend treatment. You should consult with a gynecologist and find out what is going on, and if you already know, discuss it with them. Good luck.

Itchy bump and a swollen labia?

Minora or majora?

Stringio
Is this on the minora or majora? On the minora era are a variety of mucous glands that may become obstructed or occluded causi g a small pimple like bump. On the majora, sebaceous glands or hair follicles may also be responsible due to ingrown hairs or cysts. If this does not resolve discuss with your physician for a review of other more obscure causes.

How can I treat a swollen labia?

Hot sitz bath

Bruise
If the swelling is due to bruising after intercourse, cycling, or other physical activity sitting in a warm bathtub will decrease the pain and swelling. If the swelling is one sided(labia) then it may be a swollen Bartholin gland cyst/infection. If the sitz bath doesn't relieve the swelling see your MD,

Swollen labia, what could it mean?

If after sex...

Sex_education
If it happens after sex, then too hard, too long, too dry, too rough, vagina too small, penis too big, not enough foreplay, infections, trauma, etc. If the problem does not resolve, you need to get examined by your doctor, don't be shy...go! In the future, be gentle, use lube if needed (Astroglide or Pjur), go slow, if it hurts, stop and cuddle and try again later.

Blister & swollen labia from kissing?

Allergy?

Yeast
This is very unusual and you need to discuss more details with your physician. Clearly if minimal contact occurred, there is a possibility of allergy or STD. Review your history of topical agents applied such as makeup or lubricants or even latex exposure. If more aggressive contact, abrasion, irritation and inflammation is a possibility. Yeast infection is not likely in this scenario. Bacteria?

Does swollen labia mean i have an std?

STDs

Condom
Possible, but would need far more info to try and answer your question in further detail. My suggestion is that if you feel you were exposed to an STD go and see a doctor, be examined and tested thoroughly. Good luck.

What could cause a swollen labia minora?

Lots of things

Condom
If the sex is too rough, too long, too dry etc, the labia minora can become inflamed. It is not normal, but it is not uncommon. Using extra lubricant such as astroglide or Pjur can help. Allergy to condoms can also cause the problem. It the problem persists, it is time to have your doctor examine you.
