Question: Vulvar Rash (Fissures) and late period
|haha28 - Mon Nov 10, 2008 12:02 am|
For a little over a month, my vulva has been itchy and red... There are a lot of cut-like appearances on it.
The last time I got my period, the rash disappeared..But came back right after it got over...
The skin is really raw...
It doesn't really burn when I pee..
Also, my period is about a week late..
I have never had sex so this cannot be an STD of any form..
I feel it might be hormonal (After I looked this up on the net), as a couple of days ago I noticed an incredible no. of pimples on my face suddenly..
Please tell me what this might be?

but the skin is now like changed colour to like a really light pink-white!..
and theres quite a bit of white discharge also..

I suspect you are having some hormonal pH changes that result in a change in the normal bacteria present in the vagina. Discuss this with your doctor because you could also be getting yeast overgrowth with this alteration in the normal bacterial flora.
