The skin down there is raw?

The skin between my vagina and butt burns every time I pee. It feels raw. But then sometimes it itches and I scratch it and that makes it worse.

  • Sounds like you may have a yeast infection unless you've had some really, really rough sex in the last day or two. See your Dr. or get a testing kit at the drug store. Lots of women think they have yeast when it is something else.

  • It can be a number of things. One, it could be rigorous sex. Too much sex in a period of time can make you sore, itchy, and just icky down there. Do you douche? douches dry the vagina out. It can also be a yeast infection, or STD. I would get to a doctor if I were you. The person who said shower and rinse as often is wrong. You want to make sure the area is dry. Wear cotton underwear, get a vaginal soap to wash with, not a regular soap, and don't bathe... take showers but don't consistently shower.. just do as you would normally do. But definitely go see your doctor.
