Scar on labia with redness hurts when it rubs with

Patient

Q: Scar on labia with redness hurts when it rubs with other labia. Doctors confirmed its not herpes they don't know what it is. No blisters or bumps.

Doctor

A:   Hello,
Thanks for the query.

The scar could be due to dryness in the vagina during intercourse which could have caused inflammation due to friction.
In case it hurts every time, you may sort a second opinion by a Surgeon for an examination. Use feminine wash with lactobacilli, it reduces the symptoms and maintains vaginal pH.

Also, drink plenty of water daily.
Hope this helped.
Regards
