Hi, i hope somebody can help or give me some reassurance. I am 25 years old and have been with my partner for 3 years. We use condoms when we have sex because i had an ectopic pregnancy whilst on the contraceptive pill.

For the last 4-6 weeks i have been suffering from itchiness which resulted in superficial cuts on both sides of my labia, at the bottom end towards the vaginal opening. To start with i thought maybe i had been irritated by toilet paper or something but it is not healing. One side is worse than the other. It does seem to be healing then it will itch again and its like i am opening it back up?

Me and my partner have not had sex for six weeks so it is not a sexual wound or anything like that.

I am concerned given the fact it is not healing and i am worried it is something sinister 😦 I have been using sudocrem as a barrier cream and i have no other symptoms.. please help 😦

      i thought the same about the docs but i thought i might as well get the ball rolling!! the zeroderm has massively helped, it works as a barrier and is very soothing. you have nothing to lose trying it! i think its £5.85 and you dont need a prescription either
