Brief Answer:
Photograph is needed...

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Can you send a photograph of the extra skin hanging off your labia? That could help me assist you further!

Having an extra skin hanging off your labia might be possible:
- skin tags
- wart

If you have pinch it off and is bleeding, you should see a local dermatologist or gynecologist for more specific examination and evaluation of your "extra skin hanging off your labia".

Please apply cold compresses locally to stop bleeding and contact doctor.

Hope it was of help!
