Question: My 12 year old daughter is complaining that when she walks she feels rubbing in her vaginal area. Upon inspection it does appear that there is excess skin hanging down that has recently appeared. What could cause this?

Brief Answer:
Hymenal tag

Detailed Answer:

I understand your concerns.

Has she attained menarche? Does she get menstrual cycle?

This skin appears to be hymenal tag. This can be excised by a small procedure if causing difficulty.

Let me know if you need anymore help.
