Hymenal Tags or Remnants

These are hymenal tags or remnants and they can become inflamed after irritation. The swelling should subside, but sometimes they can become inflamed and may require removal. This can be done under IV sedation and local anesthesia by an experienced gyn or plastic surgeon.

Excess skin inside vault

Thanks for your photos... but what you have looks completely normal. If the tissue thickens, then have it evaluated by your gynecologist.
