So I took a hand mirror and poked around down there and noticed these small, bright red... sores? gashes? welts? i dont really know what to call them, spots? on the inside of my inner labia. those aren't particularly irritated, but there is one section just above my vaginal opening (which is always sort of puffy, theres all sorts of extra skin there, i dont even know) that sort of looks like its been torn? and its raw beef red colored and sort of itches?
I have no idea what's up, I've never experienced anything like it! Well the discomfort is familiar, but I've never really looked.
To be honest it doesn't really bother me. The right side where the "tear" is REALLY itches, though. The only other time i really notice is if I move in such a way that my labia are probably rubbing together, then it sort of hurts.
I'm getting over a sinus infection type sick and was on antibiotics, does that have something to do with it? My last sexual activity with my boyfriend was on Sunday, and its Thursday now, so I think it's a little late for anything from that?
Is this like a yeast infection? I have no idea what those entail...
What can I do to make the itchy stop? :( Could I use like a hydrocortisone cream...?
