Thank you for reading this.

Ive had only had one partner all my life and they had chlamydia and they didnt know. So I got tested and sure enough I had it too and received treatment. However, this was back in February and I havent had sex since then.

Now I have this and its itchy.

    it may not be, but it looks like lichens which affects the vulva-visit your doctors for a referal to gynaecology & a diagnosis

    try not to panic too much, most things have innocent explanations x

      bless you, it doesnt look like blisters to me as others have said. i believe it is inflamed skin, as this is typical in the beginning stages of lichens! it can be treated though, mention it to the doctors and they will likely give you some cream:)!

    Dear anxsgrl,

    You have a slightly paler, rougher patch of skin close to the clitoris. As ge34667 has suggested, it could be a lichenification condition, either lichen simplex or lichen sclerosis. It's difficult to tell from your description or photo which of the two you have, but an experienced dermatologist or gynaecologist would be able to distinguish them.

    Of the two, I think it's more likely to be lichen simplex if you have a pre-existing skin condition like eczema, allergic dermatitis or dry skin. If you scratch any part of your skin repeatedly, it can look exactly like the photo you posted. So if you have any of the skin conditions I mentioned that makes you want to scratch, then the end result would be what you're currently experiencing.
