Swollen Labia After Yeast Infection Treatment?

Patient

Q: Hi I am recovering from a yeast infection. I took a one day oral pill treatment and my symptoms of off discharge, itching and burning disappeared almost completely in two days. But, I now have very swollen labia minora (not irritated or painful, just very enflamed) I have been wearing 100% cotton underwear, using canesten anti fungal cream and cold compresses but the swelling hasnt gone away after 2 days. How long should I expect it to swell for? What can I do to make the swelling go away?
