Q: Swollen, red vagina lips and it feels like it's on fire.

I have had alot of problems since having a baby in May. Well I began having a discharge that was brown with a red tint early this past week. I started bleeding bright red Thursday. I'm not supposed to get my period for at least another two days. Yesterday my vagina was hurting really bad so I looked at it and the outer lips are bright red. Even the inside is really red. I know your thinking well your bleeding so of course it's red. It's not the blood it's the inside walls. It's swollen and feels like it's on fire and hurts really bad when I wipe or touch it. Please help.

You may very well have an infection going on and you should get seen immediately by your GYN so you can get a definitive diagnosis and treatment.
