Thank you for the images you uploaded. Was the rape a recent event? Also, have you done a pregnancy test to make sure you aren't pregnant?

it was recent and I got my period after
OB GYN Doctor: Dr. Mo, Board Certified MD replied 7 months ago

If you have had your period then hopefully the risk of pregnancy is low.

As for the images you uploaded, those are normal vaginal papillae and not any signs of an STD or infection otherwise.

How could I stop the dryness and itchness it really uncomfortable
OB GYN Doctor: Dr. Mo, Board Certified MD replied 7 months ago

There are personal vaginal hydrating lotions that you can use to help with that. Most likely it's from the rape where the tissue in the vaginal area was irritated. Femme Care is one such product but there are others as well. It's better than olive oil or other home remedies.

I read that papillae is rare among young females like me. Also I used to never have dry vagina and all this itchiness and dryness started after the rape. I don’t produce mucus on my vigina anymore it’s always dry
OB GYN Doctor: Dr. Mo, Board Certified MD replied 7 months ago

Papillae are generally only found in younger women. Your information source is likely incorrect. We rarely see it in women over age 40.

It's possible that you have a yeast infection from the intercourse but generally that would present with discharge and redness. From the image I cannot see anything like that. If you are having discharge it would be good to get tested.

You said the rape was recent so the lack of mucous production is likely related to that and some of the itching and dryness is likely related.

I got a recent opinion and the doctor said it was Genital warts..
OB GYN Doctor: Dr. Mo, Board Certified MD replied 7 months ago

Do you have any particular questions for me regarding that diagnosis?
