I noticed my right labia was suddenly swollen when i was using the toilet. Earlier i was masturbating kind of hard. It's only been swollen for a short while so i want to cure it quickly. I don't know what to do. It is really uncomfortable for me to walk and wear underwear or trousers. What is wrong with it and how can i cure it?
Welcome to ehealthforum,
The symptoms could be due to trauma, inflammation, irritation etc. It should subside in 24-48 hours. If it persists, visit our doctor/gynecologist for further evaluation and assistance. Avoid vaginal douching, use of harsh soap or perfumes in the area. Use loose cotton undergarments and avoid use of tight fitting clothes. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest. Maintain healthy diet and lifestyle.
