Customer Question

I have a tear on top of the outer lips of my vagina. It heals quickly but it's very itchy down there and it gets scrapped again. What could have caused this and how can I heal this cut permanently and avoid its recurrence?
JA: How long have you been dealing with this? Does anything in particular seem to make the itch better or worse?
Customer: It's been few weeks. Scratching gives little bit relief from itch temporarily but that's it. However there is non pain, not even during urinating
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: I had had UTI during my pregnancy 4.5 years ago Me and my partners sometimes indulge in oral action as well.

Thank you for waiting, when this first started was there anything in particular that may have caused it, like not enough lubrication or excessive rubbing?
