The Lips Of The Vagina Are Swollen And Painful To The Touch?
Good evening doctor. Yesterday Friday when I shaved my pubic hair, I found that my vaginal lips were swollen. Then when you touch it it also hurts and even when you are walking it also feels uncomfortable. Is this swelling of my vaginal lips serious? If not, what medicine should I buy over the counter at the pharmacy? thanks.
Shaving pubic hair should be done carefully and in the right way. From the situation you are experiencing, swelling of the vaginal lips accompanied by pain can be caused due to various causes, one of the causes that may be causing your condition is due to an abscess in the vaginal area.
Abscess or collection of pus is something that can occur in various parts of the body, including the vaginal area. Abscesses can occur due to bacterial infection, which usually originates from the outer skin layer. An abscess in the vaginal area can cause symptoms such as swelling, redness of the vaginal area, pain, can be accompanied by fever and pain in the groin. If the condition you are experiencing is due to an abscess then treatment is usually required using certain antibiotics, and may require certain minor surgery. Abscess is not a dangerous thing.
But besides that, the condition you are experiencing can also be caused by other causes such as:
Bartolin cysts are chronic irritation of the vaginal lips, sexually transmitted diseases such as herpes simplex dermatitis. Therefore, it is recommended that you do not take any drugs, taking any drugs can actually worsen your condition. If it is really painful, then for a while you can take painkillers that are sold freely in pharmacies such as paracetamol.
It is recommended that you see a doctor directly so that the doctor can check your condition directly, and later the doctor can provide the right therapy for you.
