Suggest treatment for a vaginal wound

I notice that I have several thin, long cuts on the outside lips of my vagina. They are usually about 1 cm s distance from the area around the clitoris, or down the bottom near the anus. They hurt quite severely, and the pain lasts a long time. They are especially aggravated by urinating, sex, any tight underwear or any temperature of water. When I get any I try to take a lot of baths in tepid water to make sure the area is very clean, then I always dry very carefully. The cuts seem to bleed a little bit, but not very much at all. They appear as long, thin slivers. They look a bit like long paper cuts. I have only been sexually active with one man, my boyfriend, and neither he nor I have ever had any STD s or STI s. The pain is quite bad, and it is very uncomfortable, and I am just wondering what it could possibly be, as they seem to have no obvious external cause.

Hello,

May be it is due to vigorous sexual intercourse with your boyfriend. You avoid sex for 2 weeks or until those tears get healed. Maintain hygiene, drink lots of water, and eat good nutritious food.

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

Regards,
Dr. Muniraju K G
