I seem to be losing the coloration of my labia minor - also in an area of the perineum - itchy most of the time too - what could be causing this

Thanks for the query.

From what you describe, I feel your symptoms may be related to lichen sclerosis et atrophicus. This condition is typically seen in people of your age.

A direct examination of the affected area and skin biopsy will help us in confirming this possibility. I suggest you to consult your dermatologist for examination.

Hope this answers your query. Let me know if you have any other concerns.
