Swollen, itchy lips???

My vaginal lips are swollen and itchy. I don't know if I'm having some kind of reaction to the pads/pantishields I'm using, or if this is a normal part of the recovery process. Anyone?????????????

I had my LSH one week ago (took cervix + uterus). I don't know if that matters. Thanks! I sooooooooooo wish I could take a bath, but I know I can't...........

It sounds like you are having a reaction to something or you are have a yeast infection. Have you tried using different pantie liners? If it continues, please call your doctor. He or she should be able to give you something that will help.

Thanks, danni. I haven't used pads in so long, and I couldn't remember which ones to buy, so I probably got the wrong ones. I'm so sensitive.... If it doesn't go away, I'll call my gynecologist though!

Re: Swollen, itchy lips???

Did you accidentally get pads with some type of "odor shield"? I did once and caused a fire down below. (I also have super sensitive skin.)

Make sure you clean the area with a very gentle cleanser and rinse, rinse, rinse. At this point you'll probably feel like the water is a fire extinguisher. Gently pat dry, use a hair dryer on low or air dry before you redress.

Do you have any pads you used presurgery that you can use to see if it is indeed a reaction to the pads? Or can you send your hubby out for a different brand (the smallest count the store carries, just in case those don't work either).

If nothing changes, call your DR.

Good luck!
