Doctor insights on:
28 y old married woman with redness at vestibule and outer side of labia majora with feeling of irritation in these areas no discharge no dysurea diangosis?
Period due in 4 days. Genital felt iiritated after intercourse used condom w/N-9. Now white mucus all over my labia minora & dripping feeling. Causes?
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
Not normal: This does not sound normal and I would highly recommend that you have your gynecologist perform an evaluation.

Pelvic pain - doc said labia is bigger than the other, could my abortion have caused this, having severe pain - and been feverish, not feeling good?
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.
I have a cluster of skin colored bumps that run along my labia majora. I'm 18, I got my period on thursday, I use pads and it was yesterday when I started feeling uncomfortable. I've had unprotected sex about a week ago?
Eval: This can't be diagnosed with the information that is available. A history, physical examination & other studies may be needed to determine cause/causes.
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.See 2 more doctor answers
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.
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.
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.See 2 more doctor answers
