Hi, I have this excess skin near my vagina. Is that normal? What causes this?

Don't forget that while the general stuff is similar, we're all different from each other, too. So some women might have larger labia than others but it's all part of normal. So go see your doc for reassurance. ...Read more

I have a cut on the outside of my vagina just on the skin outside the folds. Is it ok to use A+D ointment on it?

I have a cut on the outside of my vagina just on the skin outside the folds. Is it ok to use A+D ointment on it?

If you're allergic to wool, you might get a reaction from lanolin. Otherwise, A & D is safe, but not always effective. Consult your doctor or get a Virtual Consult on HealthTap if it doesn't heal in a week or so. ...Read more

Why does it look like I have an extra bit of skin on my vagina opening? Wen I tense it goes into a flower shape? Wierd question sorry just worried

Sounds like a normal: Sounds like a normal variation. The vaginal opening and the labia can have different appearances and still be normal. Just like having different noses, or eye color.
