This can be. ..: ... a number of things. The most likely would be contact dermatitis. .. your vaginal tissues have become irritated and inflamed by something touching them...detergent, soap, lubricant, condom. It also can be a symptom of dryness or even an untreated yeast infection. Eliminate the soap/detergent, etc issues and if symptoms persist, see your doctor for testing/diagnosis. Good wishes:) ...Read more

I have a knot in my groin area. Right beside my vagina. It hurts if I touch it it doesn't have a head on it and it changes in size. What could this be?

Lymph node: A tender swollen area in the groin could be an enlarged lymph node which is your body's immune system fighting off an infection or it could be a soft tissue abscess. The lymph node is definitely the more likely of the two. See your doctor to help address the infection. ...Read more

See your OB/GYN: This could be a Bartholin's gland cyst, I would see you family doctor or OB/GYN to be assessed this may need to be surgically drained, or a small catheter placed in the mass to drain it.

Can the rash on my vagina be from my yeast infection? Also have a node in my groin that's hurting and swollen?? Haven't had sex in 7 months

Can the rash on my vagina be from my yeast infection? Also have a node in my groin that's hurting and swollen?? Haven't had sex in 7 months

Probably not yeast: Yeast generally does not cause lymph node inflammation. A new herpes infection would be a consideration if the rash has blisters or open sores, but unlikely with no recent sexual contact. Depending on the nature of the rash, perhaps a bacterial infection like staph or strep. See a doctor and take it from there. Good luck. ...Read more

What do I do to get rid of a serious rash/raw skin on my vagina and butt?

What do I do to get rid of a serious rash/raw skin on my vagina and butt?

Possible intertrigo: This is likely intertrigo, a heat type rash in skin folds. First, keep the area dry by blow drying after a shower and liberal powdering.
Then, try 1% Hydrocortisone cream 2-3/day, and if that doesn't help, try any over the counter anti-fungal cream. Balneol is also good for this type thing.
Btw, it is not your vagina, but your vulva that is involved. ...Read more

In the bikini line though, you may have shaved and that can cause an irritation and folliculitis like rash. Groin areas commonly get fungal infections too. But as stated, these are guesses only, see a dr for the answer and tx, best wishes. ...Read more
