Extreme itching in clitoris, has a tear. Type 1 diabetes. Will it heal?

I have extreme itching on and around my clitoris and the surrounding area. I have type 1 diabetes and suffer from recurrent thrush, but i have suffered from this fairly constantly for maybe 10 years. I often have a lack of natural lubrication and pain during sex. i now have a tear on my clitoral hood, a small part of the nerve? is protruding from where the glans and the hood meet. its is not particularly painful but is very sensetive. Im not sure when exactly this happened, at least several weeks ago, and has gotten slightly worse (ie the nerve? is protruding a little more than bofore) - i had hoped that it would heal up on its own. I am concerned now that surgery will be needed to fix the problem - i need advice what to do about the tear and also the itching. thanks

Hi there.

The itching happens when you get fungal infection due to high sugars, even when your sugars are high for a short period. This is controlled by keeping your sugars under control and using anti-fungal treatment. Now the sensitivity is all due to constant irritation of the clitoris. Please see a good dermatologist and he/ she will treat you for the fungal infection and for the abrasions which have turned sensitive. This should not lead further to spread of infection in your private parts and hence I would suggest you to see the doctor ASAP. Take care.
