Dry Itchy Sore VJ??

Tmi II'm sorry :/ it's not my entire girl it's like my clit and the little u shaped part of my lips right above it it's really dry irritated and itches from being so dry. Ive been putting a n d ointment or vaseline but as soon as I need more it comes right back I even tried not shaving for a couple days but it didn't help. It's not an std or yeast infection I've been tested n retested for them all n clean. I'm wondering if it's hormone related because of how dry it is. I feel bad cuz hubby probably thinks I hate him but it's so painful even without swx :/ I can't imagine trying. . Anyone else been or going b thru this???

I dealt with exactly what your describing! I had the itch for like 2 and half months and my doctor just brushed it off! Its better not to itch it ! Cause you'll make it really raw! I don't know if it has to do with it.. But I have a skin tag there now.. Doc said it was normal.

Ive had the same thing from time to time, my Dr told me its because with pregnancy hormones are at its peak and extra blood flow begins in that area which can cause the sensitivity and sometimes swollen "raw" area, just a pregnancy perk us ladies get to enjoy -__- lol. You can continue to moisturize as long as it is unscented or lotions made for sensitive skin. Also if u have discharge, use a panty liner and change it every 4 hours even if its not wet, the discharge can irritate it since its so sensitive and that's what's causing the dryness. It does subside(: DO NOT SCRATCH! lol, all will get better mama.

Try using vagisil wash which will help regulate your ph level. Worked for me and don't itch! Keep putting cream on if necessary

Its prob best not to put lotions or anything because it will irritate just try to keepit dry and clean what really helps me is using a wash cloth wet with hot water squissed out. treat it like u cut ur self shaving. ik it ***** it irritates the crap out me to but i just try to keep dry and clean eventually it will go away and heal
