Embarassing question...

Up by my clitoris, the skin around it is cracked and hurts. I also have flaky skin around my outer lips. I don't have any bad looking/smelly discharge or itching. It has nothing to do with my vagina, just my vulva. Have you experienced this? What's up with that?

  • Go to your gyn and ask her to check and see if you have Lichen Sclerosis. It'san autoimmune disease, sort of your body attacking itself. If that is what it is she will give you a prescription for some steroid cream that will clear it up. It was considered rare until they found out a lot of women had it but were sufferring in silence, so TELL her to check it, or she may not have it on her radar. I was lucky to have a gyn who had just been to a teaching conference on it when I went in.

  • Ive never had this but sounds like dry skin. Try some moisturizing cream or lotion maybe. Good Luck!
