I went to a walk in clinic doctor about a month ago with an extremely sore vulva on one side, on the outside edge of my labia minora and down to the edge of my vagina. He said he didn't know, but maybe lichen sclerosis, gave me a steroid cream and told me to see my own doctor in a week.
My doctor didn't think it is lichen sclerosis as she could see nothing visibly wrong with my vulva. I told her that I can feel a slightly raised line of skin running alongside my right labia minora and down to my vagina edge, but I agree I see nothing. She said she was going to refer me to a gynecologist, and advised me to stop using the steroid cream. She thought I had some sort of allergic reaction and thought it was good I have already switched to no soap, free laundry detergent, white cotton etc.
So now for two weeks I have had a slight itch in the area but not pain like initially and I haven't really looked at the area. Yesterday it started to become bothersome and I put the steroid cream on without looking. Today it is more bothersome and I looked to find to my horror, I have what looks like a third labia minora next to my right labia minora. I know it's gotta be a skin fold due to inflammation, but this is the only way I can explain it. It is slightly more red than the rest of my vulva, but no sign of whiteness, bumpiness, dryness etc. I also see that there is a red line visible where I could feel the pain, straight down to the edge of my vagina.
Any idea what is going on with my vulvar skin, anyone? It's very uncomfortable and I am so depressed and worried, crying a lot. I wouldn't call it pain or itching at this point,you it's something in the middle?? I know being stressed isn't going to help, but can't help it. I don't get to go to the gynecologist until October
