This answer was rated:

I have a sore spot on the outside lip area of my vagina. It is from wearing underwear, shorts or pants when it was hot. I was thinking of soaking in bath water with epson salt. Should I do anything else? Thank you.
Can you describe the spot for me?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
It's not a blister. Kind of hard to describe. Area of skin that is irritated.
maybe red and a bit rough or scaly?

OK. While the Epsom salts might help, this sounds like a fungal infection or a yeast infection and I suggest using Lamisil cream three times a day and following that with calendula or aloe vera cream.
