Irritation yes, swelling no... sounds like you may have crabs- I'd check with a doctor to make sure.

If you are scratching or excessively cleaning then you could cause swelling. But the best thing to do is to check with your doctor. It could be a few different things including crabs.

What happens if you put lotion in your vagina?

Because the vagina tissue is thin, it isn't recommended to put just any ol lotion in there.. mostly because it can cause irritation and swelling but other problems could arise depending on the kind of lotion you are talking about... you will likely change the pH balance that could cause a yeast infection, but as lotions not indicated for internal or vaginal use aren't tested in the vagina, there is no telling what kind of problems could arise. Lotion indicated for vaginal use, like KY, are mild and will do what it is suppose to, but not much else.
