I'm in a long distance relationship. Whenever I visit my boyfriend, I get a rash. For a while, I thought I was just irritated by having sex. But, then I realized I only get a rash when I visit him, not when he comes here (and I never got a rash when he still lived here.) The house he lives at has really hard water. I thought it could perhaps be the soap, but even when I use my own soap I get a rash. That leads me to believe that, for some reason, the hard water is giving me a rash. First, does that make any sense at all? Is it even possible? Or am I overlooking something? I suppose I'm not even sure it's a rash. What happens is that my labia gets very red and swollen--very tender to the touch. And, after a while, there's like little cuts, almost. Also, I experience a lot of discharge, but it doesn't seem like a yeast infection at all. It's very frustrating because it happens every time I go there, making it very hard to be intimate. Any help or suggestions would be very appreciated! Thank you!
