Yeast?: A yeast infection is the best bet for symptoms like these. You could safely try one of the many OTC vaginal yeast treatments, anything with active ingredient ending in "azole" (clotrimazole, miconazole, etc). All are equally effective; you can choose the least expensive. Use the cream both in the vagina and on the irritated external area. If no response after a few days, see your doctor. ...Read more

Consult Dr. Walgreens: Any over-the-counter antibacterial ointment or cream will do, in addition to meticulous personal hygiene and trying to avoid whatever caused those 'small cuts' in the first place.

I have a small cut on my perineum from chaffing when riding my bike - very small like papercut, or like a split on your lip- what can I do to ease the pain (vaseline sudocrem etc)? And how long to heal?
Great blood supply: The good news is that area has fantastic blood supply and so healing occurs rapidly. Inflammation (red, hot, tender swelling) is the body increasing the blood flow to the injury to bring healing factors to the area and veins expand to carry bad stuff away. Avoid further trauma to the area. Let nature take it's course. Skin cream may decrease any friction at the site. ...Read more

I'm 20. Not vergin. I just noticed that My perineum is teared. No bleeding. It's like a cut. I'm really worried. What should I do?
Tear: It is likely that intercourse has resulted in a small tear in the vaginal lips. This tear can be repaired by a doctor after numbing the area and suturing it closed. An open tear is also at risk for infection. Please cleanse the area and apply antibiotic ointment. Some patients, if the tear is very small, allow it to heal that way. You should see a doctor in person to help make that decision. ...Read more

Hard bump: There are internal and external hemorrhoids. And you have constipation which may well be a proximal cause for your hemorrhoids.

Hopefully the bump will largely resolve itself by then. If not your GI doc will thank u for being so considerate. ...Read more
