Back story -- About six months ago my period returned in full force after two years of breastfeeding. I had very mild periods leading up to this and my skin was very dry and itchy, which I attributed to low estrogen from breastfeeding. After my period fully returned, my skin became extremely sensitive and I had a burning sensation at the entrance of my vagina. This happened on a Saturday, so I wasn't able to contact my doctor's office right away. In the meantime, I applied vagisil to ease the discomfort. The following day my skin started to blister and get small fissures. My doctor was unfortunately on maternity leave, so I had to see a new doctor and she told me without question I had HSV2. Everything came back negative, which was great, but I didn't know how to treat the blisters or what even caused them.
Thankfully, my skin healed and I was able to see my doctor this past December. She said everything looked good and it seemed like a perfect storm. Since then, I've had a few tiny fissures on the top part of my vulva in the creases. The skin healed, but it lost its pigment and I'm now I'm very concerned and have scheduled another appt at the beginning of March.
Picture is attached of the white spot of skin. It surrounds the area of the cut and is flat and smooth. I'm not sure if it lost the pigment due to skin trauma and thats just how it healed, if it's LS, or something more serious. The internet is a scary place when you don't know and have to wait.
