Need clinical examination and proper treatment.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

Thanks for writing to us.

Patches near vagina may be due to yeast infection, molluscum, genital herpes, wart, ring worm infestation, dermatitis (from bath products) etc.

You have to undergo clinical or pelvic examination by your local doctor to confirm the diagnosis. It can't be diagnosed from the web without clinical view.

I suggest you to undergo complete STD profile and culture test of vaginal discharge (if anything) if you are sexually active currently.

Treatment can be done according to specific etiology. Antibiotics and steroid (1% hydrocortisone etc) are usually given.

Hope I have answered your query. If you have any further questions, I will be happy to help.

Wish your good health and take care.

For future query, you can directly approach me through
