I went to sleep and my vagina was fine then

Patient: I went to sleep and my vagina was fine then I wake up and my vagina is swollen. What do I do??

 

 

Doctor: Hello,Thanks for the query.It is unlikely for the vagina to develop a sudden swelling that has got noticed after a nap.It could mean an acute reaction, for example, an insect bite, which can develop into a sudden swelling. Any food or cosmetic allergy applied over the area, new soaps or lotions can also cause a swelling.Kindly consider consulting a gynecologist for an examination and specific medications for the swelling.Hope this helped.Regards
