Welcome to ehealthforum,
The symptoms that you describe could suggest vaginal/vulval infection, or infection of the wound. Men can remain asymptomatic even if they have infection. Look out for development of any new symptoms. The inguinal lumps that you describe could be due to causes like lymph node swelling/inflammation, fatty lump, etc. The exact cause can only be made out after careful evaluation done by your doctor/gynecologist. Treatment as appropriate (based on examination findings and investigations results) would be started to help you. Avoid any self-manipulation. Consider being 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. Avoid vaginal douching, or use of harsh soap or perfumes in the area. Use loose cotton undergarments and avoid use of tight fitting clothes. Avoid sweat accumulation. Keep area clean and dry. If infective cause is detected, and if you are sexually active, get your partner also treated simultaneously to prevent chances of re-infection, and avoid having intercourse while being on treatment.
Take care.
