Swollen labia

Recommended Posts

Alright. So I had a blister on my labia majora yesterday. I tried to pop it because they heal faster when you get the virus out (at least I feel it does). Now, I know you aren’t supposed to pop them, but like I said... I do. Oops. Anyway, the area got really swollen and it was uncomfortable going to bed. So this morning I wake up and take some Advil to reduce the swelling. Didn’t work. My lymph nodes are swollen up into the right side of my pelvis now, and the skin is pink. My right labia majora is HUGE! And it is hard in some spots. Has this happened to anyone else? I had an epsome salt bath and now I’m icing my lady bits. Could the area get infected that fast or did I just piss off the virus?

WOW!!! If friction pisses of the virus then I imagine you did. Ouch. Based on DontJuan's research. If it were me I would use some CVS brand Zinc Cold Remedy spray. You want the ingredients Zinc lactate, zinc sulfate cream may be a good second. it can be hard to find everytime I go I usually only see 1-2 it is in a white /orange box and is about 2x4'' tall. I would spray it on and let it air dry then finish with diaper rash/bed sore zinc oxide cream combo. If I have a sore it instantly takes the pain away. Dr. B had my sibling taking curcumin 6x a day for inflammation. 

I am sure the men and women are better prepared to answer your question. You did the right thing with ice n Epsom salts bath. Don't pop them silly! Sleep more and less stress will be critical.
