Hi, I seem to have a problem that's getting worse

Patient

Q: Hi, I seem to have a problem that's getting worse. I think I have a cut/tear on my clitoral hood just above my clitoris in the crease of my labia. I think that the cause was too much rubbing because it looks like it's been rubbed raw. It burns to urinate and is constantly throbbing, my clothing keeps rubbing against it and making it hurt even worse. I have been checked for STDs and I came up clear and my partner did as well. It's been about two days since I found the tear and the pain is only getting worse, I think that it's a cut because the area looked very red and was sensitive like quite a few lays of skin were missing and it had the potential to bleed. Is there anything that I can do to speed up the healing process? Is this going to even heal? What can I do about the pain? How long should I expect for this to heal?
Thank you so much.
