Question: I am trying to ask a question for a gynecologist and/or dermatologist due to an ongoing severe, bumpy ,
swollen, itchy rash on labia only that will only stay under control by use of topical steroid ointment(Vanos) but this website directs me to Dr Rynne and will not allow me to select/change the specialist I need answers from. So maybe i am using the system wrong but this is the only way i am able to ask a question is to you Dr Rynne. Can you connect me with the appropriafe specialist?

I dont have a photo. I dont have genital warts, or herpes Or vaginal discharge. Only bumpy intense itching non-stop on exterior labia fowards inner thigh. Only edfected where there is pubic hair but it is only on sides- not above clitoris Area. I had
a punch biopsy done by gyn, results inconclusive. I went ro dermatologist(very awkwArd) they said the pathologist used by gyn was not derma pathalogist so thats why inconclusive. The derm wants to do another punch biopsy but i would prefer not as its painful. Is there any curable labia rashs or comditions rhat are curable? If not,
I donf see point of 2nd biopsy. The bumps are all over .under pubic hair not insids. I use vanks cream everyday to releive it.
Not blisters, no ous, and when i scratch my labia becomes swollen and hurts more and itchesmore almost like hives. Any suggestions?

Oral glucose tolerance test advised

Hi dear,
Since you have hypertension and increased lipids, the chances of diabetes are high in your case.
Tinea is a very common fungal infection in diabetic patient and do not gets easily treated in them,unless the sugar levels are controlled.
I will suggest you to get a oral glucose tolerance test with 75 gm glucose to detect any deranged sugar levels and get appropriate treatment.

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?
