Vaginal itching and peeling. STD tests came negative. Suggest treatment
User rating for this question
Good Morning, I have been experiencing chronic and intense genital itching and peeling on and off for the past two years. Starting from my clitoris, ending with the tip of my crack, the skin will even open up or split and bleed. Within the last two days my butt crack has split and is extremely painful to touch and even water. I have been to my gynocologist, a dermatologist, and a primary care, have been tested for all STDs (negative) and they keep saying it is Lichen Simplex. However as the condition worsens I KNOW it is more than that. I naturally have very clear skin and recently I have been getting these large hard bumps with puss on my buttocks, inner thighs, and I am noticing a few smaller ones going down my leg. I don't know if it is related, but every couple of days the skin on my hands gets "polka dots" of dry skin and peels no matter how much cream I use. The inside of my vagina looks clean and clear as always but the exterior continues to worsen. My gyn tested many cultures and only found a bit of yeast. Recently I did an in home treatment with Monistat, which ended last night, and although the itching has calmed down, I still have raw skin around the hood of my clitoris, my vulva, upper thigh, perineum, anus, and butt crack. I have been prescribed multiple creams and treatments including but not limited to Nystatin Powder, Lidocain solution, Clotrimazole- Bethamethazone, estrace cream, triple antibiotic ointment, Sarna lotion, Clobetasol propionate cream AND ointment .05%, miconazole cream 2% AND 200mg insert, Triamcinalone Acetonide, Hydrocortisone 2.5%, Domboro soak and Desitin.
