Hello ma'am.

I can understand that this indeed could be troubling and also limiting for you. First, please discuss the option of a vaginoplasty surgery with your gynecologist to help stitch your vagina, to prevent future tears; you might have to avoid sexual intercourse for a while. Secondly, if this could indeed be a dermatological problem, then please visit a dermatologist who is both well renowned and well experienced, he/she should be acquainted with the condition.

Hope this helps.

Best wishes.
