I am have red discoloration of the area outside my vagina...its not the lips of the vagina, its moreso the area right where the thigh meets the vagina and the area moving closer towards my anus (i think its called the perineum area). It use to be very itchy with breaks in the skin that caused burning during urination. However, my women's md gave me a perscription and had me switch soaps, so the itching and skin breaks have gone away. I was tested for all STDs and they came back negative. All of my cultures have come back negative, and it is getting to the point where my md doesn't quite know why the skin in this area is red. It is bright red. As an AA female, it is very noticeable. I don't look down there a whole lot, so I'm not sure when the discoloration happened, but I'm relatively certain, it hasn't always been that way. Does anyone have any suggestions why the perineum region outside my vagina (not the lips) would be red? Do I likely just have a skin disorder? Have you heard of any skin disorders that just affect this region the vagina region? Please help!
