Irritation on vaginal lips, red lumps, itchy, flaking skin. Any idea?

I have had irritation down below for a while and when I would itch the skin would peel away (much like sunburn ). I have now on the sides of the vaginal lips (very very top of my legs) got red lumps just smaller than a pea size, They do not irritate especially but if i do touch them they can itch sometimes and more skin comes away as i rub. I have had a sexual relation but he had not had sexual relations with anyone beforehand, so the thought of genital herpes scares me. There is no puss or fluid on these either. Any idea what it might be?

Thanks for the query,

You might have developed fungal infection.

The area of groin around labia is very moist and is prone to develop these infections.

Treatment can be with oral antifungals as well as with topical antifungals.

Various antifungal powders like candid are availabe.

These can help reduce the moisture as well as control the infection.

Please dont use any steroid, it can worsen your condition

Please meet a dermatologist for exact diagnosis.

Let me know if you have any other doubt.

you can ask a direct question to me on this forum, following the below link.

Wishing you good health,
Thank you
