Question: Hi, yesterday I was with my boyfriend and he was rubbing my vaginal and clitoris area over my clothes (underwear and loose pants on.) It was kind of rough and when I went home to pee, the outside area where my clitoris is burned. It was really bad yesterday. Today it feels swollen but the burning isn't as severe as yesterday but still burns. Is this friction burn? And what cream can I buy or what I can I do so it heals fasters and doesn't hurt as much?

Thanks for posting your query.

From the symptoms that you described, it looks like friction rub or chafing which occurs when the skin becomes irritated by the friction caused by rubbing against other skin or against a foreign material.

Follow these methods for a quick relief from this redness and soreness:
1)     Wear cotton clothes and underwear and avoid wearing any coarse or synthetic material.

2)     Wear clean and dry clothes and use a mild detergent to wash them. Dried sweat, chemicals, dirt, and other debris may aggravate the condition.

3)     You can apply some calamine lotion at the rash as it will help in soothing the skin.

4)     Application of mild corticosteroid cream and oral antiinflammatories after a prescription from your doctor are helpful in reduction of the redness and inflammation.

Hope this answers your query. If you have additional questions or follow up queries then please do not hesitate in writing to us. I will be happy to answer your queries.

Wishing you good health.

Hello,okay, thank you so much. So I read online Vagisil Satin Anti-Itch cream would be good for it, would this be okay to use on the vaginal and clitoris area?
Answered by Dr. Jasvinder Singh 15 hours later

Thanks for writing back.

Vagisil satin anti itch cream is used for rashes from razor burn from shaving or bikini waxing or irritation from soap or detergent, tight clothing, a wet bathing suit, allergic reaction, soaps, detergent, sexual activity and vaginal or vulvar dryness.

You can use this cream but only after medical supervision as there are chances that it may cause contact dermatitis and aggravate the symptoms. Instead firstly try using the calamine lotion which does not cause allergy.

Hope this answers your query. If you have additional questions or follow up queries then please do not hesitate in writing to us. I will be happy to answer your queries.

My 10 year old had a bump on the outer part of her vagina, close to pubic bone. Had a fever for 3 days, went to ER and they prescribed her with medicine for an abscess. Now she broke out in a rash and complained of burning while urinating. Noticed now she has a sore on the lower part of vagina which is why she is burning. What could these sores be from?

Hi, may I answer your health queries right now ? Please type your query here...(To preface, my son has an egg allergy and has been unable to get a lot of the vaccines given to children at his age.) My 18 month old son has had a fever varying from 101 - 103 Monday thru Wednesday night. It has been controlled by alternating tylenol and ibuprofen. I took him last night to our after hour clinic to be sure it wasn t an ear infection. Ears looked fine, but his lymph nodes were swollen and his throat was red - Strep test came back negative. Said it was probably a virus. He woke up this morning with no fever, so I assumed the virus had taken it s course. However, this evening, I have noticed a rash on his belly, back and neck. they are small red bumps that aren t raised very much. They don t seem to be bothering him too much. I hate to take him to the doctor again if it s nothing, but I don t want to ignore something if it s potentially dangerous for him. Should we give him Benedryl? Should we take him to the ER tonight or wait to talk to my doctor in the morning?
