Welcome to ehealthforum,
It is difficult to comment on the cause for the labial swelling that you describe without examining you and going ahead with further evaluation. The exact cause can only be made after careful evaluation. Do not delay in visiting your doctor/gynecologist for examination and further evaluation. Treatment as appropriate (based on examination findings and investigations results) would be started to help you control the symptoms. For temporary relief, you can consider taking cold compresses, Warm Sitz bath, etc. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately.
Take care.
