My left lower outside vaginal lip is swollen and has been that way for about two months. Sex has not been a contributing factor. It does not hurt.
Bartholins Cyst: The most common cause for a painless swelling in the lower aspect of the outer labia on one side is a Bartholin's Cyst. The Bartholin's glands secrete fluid thru the Bartholin's Duct that helps lubricate the vagina during intercourse. The duct can become blocked leading to a soft painless swelling in the location you describe. A much less likely cause is a hernia. SEE: http://bit. Ly/1vBT7T3 ...Read more

Wash with soap and water and keep the area dry, and get care if you develop multiple pimples or particularly large ones, or if not better in a few days. And no shaving the next 2-3 weeks. ...Read more

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! ...Read more
