Show a doc urgently: Any kind of skin loss is a major cause for concern. In this sensitive area, it's highly important for a doctor to assess the extent of damage to your skin and figure out the risks you're exposed to. Not to scare you, but you don't want a more serious problem arising from a breakdown of the all-important skin barrier. Possibly you're allergic to topical agents used--maybe made it worse.
