Inflammed left labia can be due to rough intercourse,infection,allergy,vulvitis(inf
lammation of vulva and vaginal area).Do not scratch at all as it might spread the infection.Apply Calamine lotion to control itching.Use hot and cold compresses.Wash the area with Tea Tree Oil mixed with water.Wear loose cotton undies.Avoid intercourse for sometime.Have a healthy nutritious diet.
If the symptoms persist/worsen consider visiting a gynaecologist for examination.You might require prescription medications.
