Two days ago I hooked up with a guy. We didn't have sex, although his penis did make contact with my labia briefly. Last night I noticed a blotchy red area on the right side of my labia minora. It is sore to the touch and the flesh is red, but it is not itchy or swollen. Could it be the result of friction caused by rubbing or should I be worried?

Hi awoman and welcome to ehealth...If you were grinding, then this could be a result of friction...Just keep an eye on it and if you have any doubts than see your doctor...As a precaution, next time you get in this situation, have him use a condom...That is playing it safe on all angles...Take care...
