Irritation usually refers to pain, itching, or swelling in the vaginal area. It can affect any part of your vulva, including your labia , clitoris , urethra, and vaginal opening. Folliculitis occurs when one or more hair follicles are inflamed or infected. It can happen anywhere that hair grows. In the pubic area, it typically results from shaving, waxing, or other forms of hair removal. Razor burn, ingrown hairs, and other forms of folliculitis typically go away without treatment.

Clitoris problems: sore, itchy, lumpy or bruised? Here's what to do
I have a swollen and painful clitoris. I also seem to be going to the toilet an awful lot, even after a very small drink. I wake up about three times in the night to go to the toilet. I've always urinated a lot and it never hurts, so I don't think it is cystitis.
