FOR WOMEN ONLY...Scaly,dry skin that is red on vagina???
Question Posted Wednesday November 26 2008, 8:43 pm
If someone knows something about this or have exprienced it i would appreciate any feedback as i'm beginning to get paranoid about it! for about 4-5 days now i've been experiencing a rash like scaly,peely,dry,red skin on my vagina not in my vagina just around like the lips part and around the opening of my vagina almost to my rectum. The first couple days it was just sensative but for 2 days now i've been having that scaly,peely,dry,red skin and it hurt a little when i had sex more uncomfortable than sore. No burning but have become slightly itching now at times but not extreme itching as a yeast infection or something. I don't know what it is and have been experiencing it ever since i ended my period and at first my thought was because i wore pads for about 9 days straight and i had some kind of pad rash but now i'm starting to think it might be something else. I might just be paranoid but i would like to be more safe than sorry. I've been in a 5 years relationship so i don't think it's an STD unless he has been unfaithful which i doubt but you never know. Thank you in advance for any feedback.

The best thing you can do is call a gynecologist and have them look at it and tell you if it's normal. The itching, dryness, peeling etc. etc. isn't normal. I doubt it has anything to do with your partner.
