Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Good afternoon, I am Dr Ruff. Thank you for your question. Please may I ask your age please? and if you still have regular periods?
Okay, thank you. Has anyone examined you with this? There is a condition called Lichen Sclerosus which can cause what you are describing. This would be diagnosed by examination/clinical history, it can be rather subtle.
It certainly doesn't sound like a vulval cancer, but examination would be key to check that this is benign.
If it was Lichen Sclerosus then this would be managed with topical steroids until it had settled. Something your GP should be happy to do, but if they had any hesitation they could ask for a gynaecologists opinion.
thank you for that, okay well it is reassuring you have already been seen, even by a dermatologist. I would be considering gynae review and dermatology again. If nothing is visible but it continues, it may be worth having a small biopsy done to have a look what the cause could be, this would also show if there is higher number of cells indicating allergy or irritation
Persist with this, I am confident there is a way of settling this, even if the last resort was regular topical treatments. However reassuringly it doesn't sound like anything sinister. Best of luck with this, hope you get to see your GP soon.
That is my pleasure. Best of luck. Please could you kindly rate my response, many thanks
