Burning raw feeling bottom labia majora mostly left but sometimes right. Had probe ultrasound, culture for bacteria, contrast scan, all normal!

Needs an exam: Lumps, bumps, blisters and other skin abnormalities on the genitals need to be evaluated. An examination will be needed to know the cause and treatment. Burning could be herpes, yeast, vulvar vestibulitis, blocked glands or an allergic reaction to household products. Over the counter Prevaleaf Soothe is a great product for this. A thorough exam will be needed to determine the cause and treatment

Yeast: A yeast infection is the most likely reason for soreness or burning sensation. Try a topical antifungal and see your Gynecologist if no improvement in a couple of days. Meanwhile, try Vagisil or topical lidocaine for the discomfort. Keep cool and dry.

3 weeks post partial vulvectomy. There is no infection. The outside of my labia where hair covers is sensitive and bruised feeling. What can cause it?

3 weeks post partial vulvectomy. There is no infection. The outside of my labia where hair covers is sensitive and bruised feeling. What can cause it?

Expected: I would expect the area surrounding the surgery would still be sore after a partial vulvectomy only 3 weeks ago. Hopefully you have a post op appointment schedule to make sure all is healing well. Silvadene (silver sulfadiazine) cream can often be prescribed to help soothe this area after this surgery.

How big is big for a women's labias?

How big is big for a women's labias?

Only you know: Labia come in all shapes and sizes and have different coloring. There really is no "too big" or abnormal so if you're bothered by the appearance or if they are bothersome in swimsuits or exercise, then see a specialist for an evaluation as genital plastic surgery can improve appearance and function dramatically.

Ok to use vfaseline to heal labia?

Ok to use vfaseline to heal labia?

This is safe: It is okay to apply vaseline to the skin of the labia. You are not clear on what exactly is going on, so if there is concern about an infection or trauma, then it is worth getting seen by an ob/gyn to rule out problems such as an infection.

How to know if my labia is too big?

How to know if my labia is too big?

Not likely: Most doctors believe - and teach - that there is no such thing as "too big, " like most body parts sizes vary. Very occasionally if a woman feels her labia may be interfering with normal activities, there is surgery to reduce the size. There are "specialists" in cosmetic gynecology who do such things too, but most mainstream docs feel this is a bit fringe.

What do men think of enlarged labia?

What do men think of enlarged labia?

Varies: There is a branch of cosmetic plastic surgery dealing with labia that are enlarged. This is probably an issue in the mind of women discovering this and wanting what to their minds is a more pleasing cosmetic appearance. Men largely have no issue with this either way; there is a sub set of men who actually prefer that appearance and would be disappointed if altered.
