Abrasion on outer labia near clitoris, redness, bleeding. Due to friction while exercising?

I have an abrasion on my outer labia in the region at the top, near the clitoris. There is no border to this abrasion, or any apparent color other than redness. It hurts to touch the area, and bleeds a little because it looks like the skin has rubbed off. I am wondering if this has been caused by friction, as the pain in the area first began after a workout.

Welcome to HCM
We understand your concerns

I went through your description. I suggest you not to worry too much. The abrasion you are talking about could be due to friction during exercise or friction of undergarments.

It is very clear that the skin inside the vagina is very sensitive, thereby the abrasion. Just the use of warm saline water should cure the problem within two days.

Hope this clears your doubts. Available for further clarifications.
Good luck.
