Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

For relieve from itching be careful of which type of laundry detergents or toilet soap you use. Avoid scented toilet paper & contraceptive foams or creams, these may trigger irritation. Take care of hygiene so that you don't catch any other infection. Use cotton underwear, do not douche or scratch. Go for protected sex if possible avoid intercourse till you are fine. Use water based vaginal moisturizer. However, you should get screening test for STD done, to rule out any sexually transmitted infection that may cause itching. Have patience, don't worry about the hairless patch, let the vagina get healed first.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

My partner (male) has Herpes 2.We been together over 3,5 years and I (female) was not diagnosed, I asked to be tested. But docs refused because I do not have ulcers in my genitals. However, I had some kind of recurrent infection that I was treated for (did not have this until this relationship). I feel burning of the skin of the labia, it is read. Now I have some red scar that looks as a red stripe under one of my armpit. I itches and has dry surface to touch. I feel as another armpit starts it too. My head hurts and I noticed some slur in my speech... What are the chances that this due to me having the virus, even if I don t have blisters on genitals? I read that if untreated it causes brain damages, etc. How can I convince my doctor to test me? I am so anxious and hope you can advice. Thank you
