Well if there is bleeding from inside your vagina, you might have tears, which is something you need to see a doctor for.

About the rash, something you can try is vasaline. It sounds gross, and feels gross, but it might help. Stop all sexual activity until it clears up. What it sounds like is just an irritation. You've had moisture down there, and it will make it sore.

Try vasaline to clear up the rash. If it doesn't go away, go see a doctor.

Also, a preventative method if it does go away, make sure you keep dry. If you let moisture sit on there too long it willl cause irritation. try and dry off moisture, expecially after sexual activities. Femine powder helps out a lot with that, you can buy it at any general store.

Don't use vasoline. Find out what's causing the rash first. It could be just a yeast infection.   You should go see your doc.

This is becoming an epidemic. I went to the OBGYN on Thursday August 13, 2009. She told me I was the 10th patient of the day with the same problem. This was the 5th week she has seen me with the same (sort) of problem. Keeps coming back in one way or another. I now am going to Hopkins to a  vulva and vagina specialist. Symptoms… red irritation burns looks sort of rashy all along outside lips and partly into opening it hurts or is very uncomfortable and sometimes I get reoccurring yeast with discharge, sometimes infection, sometimes burning on urination. I have done all the creams, pills and steroids, oatmeal baths, etc. I have stopped the usual detergent, softeners, soaps and allergy culprit use. I have had this ongoing problem for almost a year. It only got so bad that the rash thing showed up in the last 2 months. I am going nuts!!! If so many women are having this problem then there has to be something in common. I know women that have not had sex with the problem, some that have been through menopause and in between with this happening to them. Have we all taken the same medication for something, have we all used the same kind of toilet paper, or is there something in our food that we are allergic to. How do we find out? Has anyone found a cure?  I finally decided to just give some antihistamine a try for 4 or 5 days.

Your description sounds almost identical to what I've been dealing with for the past 6 mos!  I haven't gone to see a doctor yet, because I kept thinking it was simply an allergic reaction to something I've been using (laundry det, soap, toilet paper, etc.), but am ready to go now.  It's gotten worse...very itchy. And today I began having symptoms of a urinary tract infection.  

What have you found out about your symptoms?

Have you all checked out lichen sclerosis? It is very common, but a lot of doctors do not know much about it. It is not an STD, but feels like it sometimes and can cause all the above listed symptoms.

Hey I have the same problem and I know that I am extremely uncomfortable.  My mother is a nurse and suggested that it may be caused by my diabetes.  Have you been checked for diabetes or are you diabetic?

Ive had bad pain on one side of my labia for 3 years and no matter what kind of cream or ointment i put on it, makes it worse.

I went to my family doctor and he said the area was a bit red but other than that, he couldnt see or feel anything wrong. he gave me a pap test and it came back clear of anything.

I've tried fungal infection medications, hydrocortizone, vaseline, bathing in water with baking soda, tea tree oil, apple cider vinegar, diaper rash cream, hypoallergenic lotion, vitamin e oil, changing detergents, no sexual contact for a month, washing thoroughly, sleeping without underwear..

I recently realized that it would get worse whenever the area is wet. So I stopped with the creams since they were only doing me bad, and just dried the area thoroughly when it gets wet. after a shower (after only washing it with cold water, warmer water seems to make it hurt more, no soap), i dry it really really well with a hair dryer (on the cool setting, hot makes the pain worse) and wear slightly loose fitting underwear. Ive been doing this for a few days and its getting better.

Im not sure if this will help permanently but this is whats working for me so far.
