I need help throbbing rawness type pain on vulvar vaginal skin what can I do? Steroid creams not working been to docs why is this happening??

Symptom tracking: these conditions can be somewhat complex. If you have had all infections ruled out including yeast and yeast cultures, it may be worthwhile for you to begin a calendar where you trace your symptoms with certain behaviors like bleeding, sex, exercise, diet to see if any are associated. For some people it can be because of sex. We will need more information. ...Read more

Just had vulvar & perianal skin biopsy for lichen sclerosis,is it ok to use Vaseline as barrier so soon after having it done?Paracet not touching pain

Review this: With your doctor who completed the biopsy. Every doctor is different about surgical incision care/hygiene. Remember that placing anything on a fresh incision can irritate it, even Vaseline so I would be careful, as this could lead to a scar. Remember, vaseline isn't sterile either and may compromise the site. ...Read more

Why skin at vulva goosebumps after waxing?

It got "goosed".: When the hot wax is applied and removed ("ripped off"), the muscles under the skin called Erector pili elevate the skin in the form of "goosebumps" which also occurs when your body is frightened or cold as a reaction. Hot waxing is definitely a "female" endeavor as it a harsh "medieval" way to do the jab that a electric shaver or razor does just as well. Women are tougher then men in that regard. ...Read more

What is fibroepithelial polyp of the vulva? Is this HPV or is it just skin?

What is fibroepithelial polyp of the vulva? Is this HPV or is it just skin?

No it is not: This is a benign growth that can be found on the vulva or in the vagina. It can be hormone sensitive, if someone were taking hormones. It is not caused by HPV but to be certain, one should have a biopsy done. I assume by this question that this has been done. Here is a reference: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3716997/ ...Read more

The skin of my vulvar is slightly red. Do I have vulvar cancer?

Probably not.: This is not a common appearance of vulvar cancer; they are more frequently masses, ulcers, or raised plaques. However, redness around the vulva can be indicative that something else may be going on, so it is important to have it looked at by a gynecologist. ...Read more

I found a hard bump under the skin on my vulva.  What could it be? I am 20 years old.  The bump is new.

This : This is likely a cyst, or possibly an infected hair follicle. The only way to know for sure is to see your family doctor or gynecologist for a complete examination/evaluation. In the meantime you can try soaking in a warm bath with epsom salt three times a day. Only put enough water to cover your buttocks. Also try Ibuprofen for pain if present and to help with inflammation. Best of luck. ...Read more

Tiny "chunks" of skin missing on vulvar vestibule area. teeny  red( same as skin) dots on it too. no itching, or pain. what is it??

See a doctor: Without actually examining you it's hard to say exactly what it is, but the symptoms you are describing sound concerning for an infection. If that is the case, it is contagious and it needs to be treated soon. Make an appointment with your doctor or go to urgent care to be evaluated. ...Read more

I've found a rough part of skin on my vulva and I've looked and its white. What could this be?no other systems. Not itchy or sore

See your Doctor: There are a few different conditions in which the vulva skin becomes white in colour; some are serious, some are not. If the pale skin feels rough and feels different to the rest of your vulva skin, its less likely that the whiteness is due to just loss of pigment (called vitiligo). Its important to see your Dr & get it checked out. All the best! ...Read more

Bleeding on vulva? I see that the skin has peeled abit and it keeps on bleeding for 3days already! It hurts when I spray water on it. What could it be

Bleeding vulva: It is nearly impossible to tell you with near certainty what this could be. I recommend that you go to a local clinic and have it looked at. I would also advise that you do not have sex (if you are sexually active) until it is looked at. If it is an STD lesion, you can pass it to your partner. ...Read more

Had a vulva biopsy- lots of elevated skin that is painful? Did a keloid form? How is this treated? Very painful

Maybe.: It is most likely hypertrophic scar tissue. They are much more common. A hypertrophic scar is typicall not painful, develops quickly and is confined within the original incisional atea. A keloid is a benign tumor forming a mound above a scar and typically extending beyond the original incisional area. A cortisone injection will accelerate hypertrophic resolution whereas keloids are more resistant. ...Read more
