I Have Itching In My Private Parts And The Skin Of My Labia Majora Is Very Dark

Respected Doctors and readers, I am a 26 yr old unmarried gal.....yet virgin. I would like to have solution of my problem. I have itching in my private parts- in other words in the anus ring and at the point where the two labia majora meets above the clitoral hood (in the mons pubis ) . I fail to find the reason as i cannot see the skin out there because of my pubic hairs. Also during washing with water in the bath time, sometimes i find ......a small pinhead like small lump at this meeting point of labia majora in the mons pubis. And one more thing i would like to know.....the skin of my labia majora is very dark and wrinkeld and withered...please tell me is it normal? plz help what can be the reason and cure if there is any problem....... Thanks in advance

Hi Sakshi;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
First of all it is best to remove pubic hairs or at least trim it so that better hygiene can be maintained.Reason is because of hair the area can't be dry & stays moist giving rise to fungal/yeast infection.Secondly the pea size lump in mons pubis is the clitoris & not a disease lump so don't worry.The dark & withered skin is normal .Itching in anal region could be due to worms so take a tablet for deworming.Itching in vulva region is as i said due to fungal infection so please remove or trim hair & apply candid ointment locally you will get relief.
Thanks
