The online research I have done has told me that psoriasis does not occur on mucous membranes, so I'm unsure how to deal with my problem. I have genital psoriasis, but I believe it has worsened.
I normally have one patch of psoriasis within my pubic hair, and along the fold of my buttocks. I also have it all over my legs, elbows, scalp, and face (including the folds of my ears).
I have tested negative for STDs, including herpes, through swabs and bloods tests.
My problem is:
I have uneven swelling along the folds of my vulva/ labia majora. It is right along the crease.
Burning, itching, redness, sores. I also have redness in some other areas with pubic hair that is clearly psoriasis.
I examined it using baby powder and there are sections with thicker skin than others. And raw-looking sections.
Unfortunately, you probably have to be seen and examined by your doctor to know for sure .. he/she will be able to determine and prescribe the right treatment for it to go away and get better. It's hard on this community to give advice .. we're just patients, too, but wanted to stop by and say hi.
