Hello!

Welcome to the JustAnswer.com question/answer interface.

I am a Family Medicine doctor, board certified with active licenses and certification in Internal Medicine, Pediatrics, Obstetrics and Gynecology, as well as Integrative Medicine & Naturopathy, with advanced training in Neurology, Cardiovascular Medicine, Gastroenterology, Endocrinology, and Psychiatry. I am also well-trained in Functional Medicine. So far, 99% of the justanswer community of patients has found my answers helpful, and I have the honor of being the highest rated clinician on the site! I will do my best to win over your approval as well.

— For your review, here is my direct link with my current ratings: http://www.justanswer.com/medical/expert-familydoctor/

— I have read your post and observations about the pain in your vaginal area. I'm so sorry to hear about the passing of your obgyn! That's horrible. Are there any rashes in the area? Any odor or discharge? I’m interested to hear a little more about what you've been experiencing, but first, I'm curious - For the purposes of the dialog here, would you prefer that I provide you with a direct, summary response to your post, or would you prefer a more back-and-forth approach, where there will be a series of more questions and more details clarified? There is no difference in charges for your preference. You can continue to ask questions and receive answers without additional charges.

— In case you were not aware, there is no charge for the time it takes for us to reach an answer that meets your satisfaction. If you’d like a quick answer, I’m more than happy to provide that. On the other hand, if you’d like a more detailed response, I generally try not to rush any answers, and I hope you will not feel rushed either.

- Either way, the goal is for your satisfaction, and I’ll do my best to take the appropriate time to help you.

They are the specific parts of your vaginal area. Do you feel comfortable to snap and send a photo of the areas that are bothering you? Needless to say, everything here is kept 100% anonymous

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.
