Have chaffing on labia majore Very painful What

Patient

Q: Have chaffing on labia majore. Very painful. What can I do to treat?

Symptoms:  Pain and irritation
Doctor

A:   Hello,
Thanks for the query.

You must avoid sexual intercourse until the symptoms settle as friction can aggravate it. Wear cotton undergarments and drink plenty of water. Avoid soaps and cosmetics over the area. You can wash the area with feminine wash containing lactobacillus that will restore the vaginal pH and help in reducing the symptoms. Consult a gynecologist for an examination and a final opinion.

Hope this helped.
Regards
