Hello Lolytha ....
Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com, I try to help answer yes ...
Swelling in the vagina can be caused by several conditions, in general, swelling in the vagina is normal if it is not accompanied by other complaints such as fever, severe bleeding, or pus and pain. Swelling of the vagina can occur in a person after menstruation, after sexual intercourse, or while pregnant, but the swelling of the vagina or vulva can also be caused by several conditions such as:
- Vaginal irritation: this could be due to the use of underpants too tight, because of vaginal cleaning products, vaginal lubricants, irritating soap or it could be due to the use of toilet tissue or sanitary napkins.
- Allergies: if vaginal swelling is accompanied by redness and itching and heat, it can also be indicated an allergy to the use of vaginal cleaning fluid or an allergy to sperm, if complaints are felt after intercourse.
- Vaginal infections: this can be caused by bacteria, viruses or fungi. If caused by bacteria, the swollen vagina can be accompanied by itching and heat, an unpleasant vaginal odor to the presence of pus in the vagina due to abscesses. In fungal infections, a swollen vagina can be accompanied by pain during urination or during sexual intercourse, accompanied by thick, lumpy vaginal discharge. Viruses that can attack the vagina for example such as genital herpes are caused by the HSV virus.
- Cysts: cysts that usually cause swelling in the vagina are bartholin cysts and gartner cysts, complaints can be accompanied by pus that accumulates, causing swelling and pain.
To prevent vaginal swelling, some things you can do are to use comfortable and non-tight underpants, keep the vaginal area clean, avoid using vaginal cleaning products, use condoms during sexual intercourse, meet the need for nutritious food. Whereas in the treatment of the vagina, it must be considered the cause of the perceived complaint, the use of antibiotics is specific to complaints caused by bacteria, the use of antibiotics must also be in accordance with the advice of the doctor so that drug resistance does not occur, the complaints caused by viruses, then the doctor will provide antivirus Likewise, if the complaint is caused by a fungus, it is different if the cause of the swelling is a cyst, so actions such as surgery may be needed, you should check your condition to the doctor to get treatment according to your complaint. If the complaint does not go away accompanied by fever, excessive bleeding, pain during urination and sexual intercourse, immediately see a doctor.
But in situations where the corona virus is spreading rapidly, if not accompanied by needs and urgency you should stay at home, or take care of yourself so as not to be exposed to the virus, if there are complaints such as sore throats that get worse for more than 2 weeks, accompanied by more fever from 38 degrees Celsius, coughs, colds that do not heal until there is a feeling of tightness or difficulty breathing, even though you have tried to take medicine, then you should check yourself to the doctor, for further examination.
Thus my answer, hopefully it helps
