Wonder21, Just like your lips will swell up if you get hit on your mouth, your labia will swell up. Friction will also make it swell up and burn when you pee.

You can try an ice pack (be careful of frost bite!). You can also go without panties and a dress/skirt for a while.

If it does not go down by itself, see your doctor.

Best of luck!
