I have an itchy rash on my labia minora, It isn't red but the same color as my skin. I've noticed that I feel a slight pain when inserting a tampon and discomfort while walking. Sometimes there's a slight sharp pain while I sit
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
Also a bit of tingling, but there is no abnormal discharge

Why do you call it a rash if it's skin colored?

Customer reply replied 1 month ago
there are very tiny raised bumps surrounding the edge of my labia minora

Could you please post a photo of that for me on this page?

It actually stings a bit when I urinate

no, I feel most comfortable through online discussion thank you

Got it thanks

Definitely not herpes or genital warts there

Those are called milia--small benign vaginal gland cysts

But they wouldn't be causing your symptoms

The rest sounds like a yeast infection even if you don't have much in the way of discharge

But it's also possible it's a bacterial vaginosis infection

For now you can try oral probiotics and over the counter Monistat or Lamisil but if that doesn't clear it you need to see your doctor for an exam and a culture

Please let me know if you need any more information

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.
