A few hours ago I felt symptoms that made me believe I had a yeast infection, including itching, discomfort, chunky discharge and sensitivity. I used Monistat 1 prefilled applicator ointment about two hours ago, which I have used in the past and not had any type of poor reaction to. I'm currently experiencing a great deal of pain in my labia and my labia minora is swollen and tender on the left side. The right side feels tender as well but only feels slightly swollen. I can't tell if there is any type of discoloration because of the ointment I used previously. It hurts a great deal to touch, move or walk and I'm sure will be keeping me up tonight. I have had quite a few yeast infections in my day but have never experienced such pain, tenderness or any type of swelling. I have not had sexual intercourse in about two weeks.
Does anyone have ideas on what this could be and treatment I should seek? Google searches are only leading me to very minimal information about abscesses that need surgical removal.
Thank you for any help.
