What Is The Best Treatment For Vaginal Mass
Excision: I have to respectfully disagree with dr. Beard. While 80% of patients have pain relief while on lupron, (leuprolide) over half of all patients have a recurrence of pain within a year, some after 6 mos.

There are no hormonal side effects like Lupron (leuprolide) has. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Speak to your gyn doc to figure out what's best for you. ...Read more
Rectal prolapse: If mild - it can be gently reduced and pushed back in - use a moist washcloth. Stool softeners may help prevent reoccurence. If it continues to prolapse - generally surgery is required to remove the redundant tissue and "tack" the rectum up.

I've had folliculitis in the vaginal area for years now, what is the best treatment for the scarring and itch it has created?
Stop shaving?: If you have been shaving the area, stop. That may be the main problem, perhaps the only problem. If pubic area hair control remains important, consider a hair removal cream instead. If not shaving, other factors may be important -- for example, you may be carrying virulent staph or strep. If you haven't yet seen a dermatologist, consider it now. She or he should be able to sort this out. Good luck ...Read more

No best solution: Ecoli bacteria comes from yourself; your own GI tract. I would begin by paying closer attention to hygenic practices, like always wiping from the font to the back when you urinate/move your bowels. I wouldn't douche but using a peri-bottle to irrigate your vulva & perianal area might help. Utilizing intravaginal preparations like luvena may be helpful in keeping the balance of good & bad bacteria. ...Read more
