Customer Question
I have a small white...
I have a small white patch of skin next to my anus that is extremely irritating. It feels itchy but it does not hurt, is not sore, and is not elevated. I had vaginal irritation on labia minor for about 2 weeks but could not see any rash however area was
red. After those two weeks, the irritation changed to labia majora (which now is red and hot to the touch) and feels extremely uncomfortable. Between the irritation on the labia majora and near anus I am extremely uncomfortable. No discharge. No odor. No burn
when urinating. I constantly feel like my privates are on fire. I asked the gyno and he said to see a dermatologist. This happens every 3 - 4 months and lasts for a month at a time. Already wearing cotton underwear and using clear and free soaps/detergents.
No itching anywhere else on body.

Can you attach the photos here if possible? Are you aware of anything which might triggered it because it happens every 3-4 months? How tall are you? How much do you weigh? Does anything make it better or worse? Is it getting worse? Any other symptoms in other areas than the genital area? Any medical problems? Any surgeries? Any medications including over-the-counter pills and herbs? Any family medical history? What tests did you have? Did yo have a skin biopsy?

I will attach photos later today as I am not home now. I am 5'7 160lbs. I feel relief when I squirt cold water on the area. The irritation fluctuates from day to day but I'd say it's not getting better or worse. I can't think of anything that would trigger it. I have no other medical problems except my annual pap smear came back abnormal and doctor performed colposcopy but told me just to come back in 6 months. No family history. I'm prescribed wellbutrin, phentermine, and Topamax for the past 3 years. I take otc vitamins A, B12, D, E, and Azo pills however I had these symptoms before starting any vitamins. I am allergic to sulfa drugs but no other allergies that I'm aware of. When this happened the last time, I did have 5 or 6 very little very red itchy bumps on my right index finger but they were gone within a few days. I get those from time to time and also on the skin between my thumb and index finger. No skin biopsy have been performed however I had a full set of std testing including herpes and all came back as nsgative.
Dermatologist: khagihara, Medical doctor replied 2 years ago

Did the symptoms begin soon after you started wellbutrin, phentermine, or Topamax? What is the reason you are on the medications?

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
No. I've been on them for 3 years and symptoms started this year. I am on them for weight loss as well as anxiety/depression. I don't think they're the cause. I did forget one other. I am also on tri-estrylla birth control but have been on the same birth control for 8 years (just changed name of generics through the years. . Tri cycline lo, tri-sprintec, etc)
Dermatologist: khagihara, Medical doctor replied 2 years ago

As one of the severe and rare side effects of Tri-Estarylla, Inflammation or Infection of Vagina is reported. Since the OB & GYN doesn't find the cause and the symptom occurs periodically , it could be the side effect. You should switch to another oral contraceptive.

I only started tri estarylla about 3 months ago and first had these symptoms back in may
Dermatologist: khagihara, Medical doctor replied 2 years ago

Can you tell me what other oral contraceptives you used since the symptom started?

Tri sprintec and tri estrylla
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I was on tri sprintec for about 6 months though before any symptoms and prior to that was on ortho tri cycline lo for 5 years
Dermatologist: khagihara, Medical doctor replied 2 years ago

The side effect is not reported with Tri sprintec. Can you attach the photos regarding the small white patch of skin next to my anus? Is the white patch removed easily?

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
