Developed dependency after clobetasol use for 3 months in vulva. Haven't used it for 2 days. I have moderate burning. Withdrawal symptom?

Probably: Clobetasol is a high potency steroid, and shouldn't be used on sensitive skin areas for so long. You might try using a weaker steroid cream such as over-the-counter Hydrocortisone cream for awhile to wean off the clobetasol or you may need something stronger. Depending on why you are using clobetasol on that area, you probably should discuss this with a dermatologist or your gynecologist. ...Read more

I have two spots in my genital region near the vulva that are slightly red, not raised, and the only symptom is they itch like crazy! What is it?

I have two spots in my genital region near the vulva that are slightly red, not raised, and the only symptom is they itch like crazy! What is it?

Not certain.: When you say "near the vulva, do you mean "in the pubic area" or "on the outer labia"? Itchy lesions in the pubic area can be caused by insect bites (including flea bites and pubic lice,ugh!). Itching in the vaginal or labial area can be caused by an allergic reaction or a yeast infection. If they don't clear up in a day or so, or if you notice other symptoms, get medical care. ...Read more
