Swollen outer lip of vagina
An_249916 posted:
So about 2 weeks ago i had this horrible rash on the outer lip of my vagina, i thought it might be a heat rash because it goes all the way til where it meets my leg. but the rash got worse and now that the rash has nearly got away it is totally swollen like almost the whole side. It's very painful and theres pus. Its been maybe 6 months since ive had sex and id like to have some idea of what it is before i think about going to the doctors. Any help?

The idea of getting this checked out medically is to get an accurate diagnosis so it can be treated correctly, not the other way round.

If you have pus present you have an infection and from your description it sounds both painful and serious. It needs to be looked into medically now.
