I keep getting cuts on my vagina and I also have extremely dry skin around my vaginal area that peels straight off? What could be the cause of this?

Many things: I would see a physician regarding this as it could be a variety of things. A picture, in this case, is worth a 1000 words, and without a photo, it could be many things, dermatitis, eczema, yeast, lichen simplex, lichen sclerosis, psoriasis. Sometimes they need to take a biopsy to be certain, so be prepared for that. Good luck!

Itchy vulva: My advice is to avoid tight clothing, wear white cotton panties and obtain a cream like mycolog which contains an antifungal, antiyeast medication combined with a cortisone type medication which relieves irritation and itching. Hopefully you won't have to visit a gynecologist.

My friend has open sores and dry skin patches around te vaginal area, what could it be?

STD?: A photo is worth a thousand words when it comes to diagnosing skin disorders. Dry patches usually signify eczema in other parts of body but can be assc with yeast in vaginal area. Open sores could be an std like herpes, syphilis, chancre. But could also be a yeast infection that she scratched at. Best is to go to dr and get checked!

Dry vaginal skin: I wouldn't use any antibiotic ointments or cream on anything that isn't actively infected. Plain white petroleum jelly is safe for all mucosal surfaces (including eyes, nose, mouth, and vagina.

An exam: Is the only way to find out if this needs treatment. If it seems to be spreading you should schedule an appt as soon as possible. There are many possibilities from your description. HPV is very common and can look like a patch of dry skin.

Vaginal irritation: Sounds like you have some sort of vaginal infection. Do you have any discharge? You can try using an over the counter antifungal vaginal cream to see if that helps but your best bet would be to go to your doc and get an exam. Prescription pills usually work better because applying anything to an already irritated vaginal area can be really uncomfortable.

Hi I'm still breastfeeding my 20 month old does that affect my estrogen levels that might cause vaginal irritation and also dry skin on other breast?

Yes: Breast-feeding does affect your estrogen levels and it can cause vaginal dryness. Dryness can result in irritation. If you have irritation, though, it's best to see your Gyn and make sure you don't have a yeast or other infection. Make sure to use a lubricant during intercourse.

May be yeast: The only way to know what this is is to be examined by your doctor. It may be a yeast infection. If an over the counter yeast medication solves the problem then most likely that's all it was. Other possibilities include lichen sclerosis, lichen simplex chronicus, allergic reactions and psoriasis. Schedule a visit.

Using condom dries my skin near the vaginal area what can I do?

Using condom dries my skin near the vaginal area what can I do?

Lubrication: I would never encourage you to not use a form of birth control, so continue to use the condoms, but consider lubrication called astroglide. Also, there is another type of longer acting lubrication called replens that you could apply after intercourse or intermittently. Also, try different brands to see how that helps.

I have super extremely dry skin and it appears in patches in some areas and also affects my lips, what's the problem?

Do they itch?: If these areas are red and itchy you may have eczema which gets worse in the winter. The less you shower the better, only use soap in your private parts and apply a cream or ointment moisturizer. If this does not help see a dermatologist.

I am 29 years old (female) I have a mixed to dry skin. What skincare products should work for me especially to mya facial and neck area?

Healthy skin: Avoid things that make you break out, soaps & wetness. Wash your hands only when necessary. Wear gloves when needed. Wear clothes made of cotton. Bathe only with a small amount of mild unscented soap, such as dove. Keep the water temperature cool or warm, not hot! Use the medicine your doctor gave you. Use a plain moisturizer daily. Avoid scratching or rubbing the itchy area. Manage stress.

Winter skin problems: Are one of Winter's worst "gifts" and they increase as your age increases! I suggest running a humidifier in your bedroom at night. And use CUREL intensive lotion liberally!!! Hope this helps! DrZ

Hello! I have Dry Skin Should I use moisturizer on the areas of the skin which is affected. Or all over the body? Also Do you rub it in or dab it?

All over: You never know which part of the skin will dry up next. Using the cream all over the body should prevent dryness, & should be safe as long as the cream is hypoallergenic, and well-reputed brand. Avoid creams with excess perfumes, colorings, bleaches, "whiteners" or other additives. These can dry out skin & cause more problems in the future. Good luck.
