FOR WOMEN ONLY...Scaly,dry skin that is red on vagina???

Question Posted Wednesday November 26 2008, 3:43 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.

Okay, get thee to a doctor ASAP. I would abstain from sex until you know what it is. If it's making sex painful, that is your body sending you a signal to stop having sex at this time.

Do not use soap on your labia (You should never use soap; only water. The vagina is self-cleaning, like your eyes) because that will only make it worse by drying you out.

It may be an STD, or perhaps you just have developed a skin condition. You may have irritated your skin somehow and require something to heal from the doctor. Waste no time, make an appointment.

None of us can say with certainty what is affecting you here. We aren't doctors and can't see what you are describing. 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.

Is there any chance you switched soap to a perfume kind and washed this area? My cousin had what appeared to be an infection that was triggered by bubble bath. Bottom line see a doctor and get it looked at.
