Hello everyone,

A day ago I noticed that there were a few small sores on my clitoris and clitoral hood. They are not raised or filled with fluid - it's more like they are patches of skin that have been rubbed raw. An actual piece of skin came off and was on my panties the other day with a bit of blood on it.

The patches of missing skin are not causing pain, and only causing a little itchiness which I suppose is to be expected when skin has been torn and is trying to heal.

The last few days or so I have also been having very thick, white discharge. This is likely due to the fact that I am expecting my period in a week or so, but I thought I would include that in there.

Any thoughts?

Maybe it was rubbed raw....

I say leave it alone and it'll go away. :]

Cheers,

Clitoral Sores
I don't have most of the same symptoms but I do have a chronic itch that comes and goes. I just noticed that on my clitoral hood it looks like blood blisters. I did scratch hard but I have scratched harder before and never damaged anything before. The hood looks bruised and it flat and smooth, not like it has fluid in it. I am affraid. I was most abstinate for about 10 years with only 2 safe partners and we barely ever engages in sexual activity and I had a 6 yr period where I had zero contacts. I got back together with a man 2 years ago that had been widowed and only had 2 girl friends in a 10 year period. I always had STD checks with my annual anyways so we never tested before we married a year ago. He is a carpenter and he smokes so I wonder if his hands (sometimes rough too) are irritating me? I have had a mystery body rash on and off also for the last few years with no real diagnosis so I just do things to be sure I am not being irritated. I have also had chronic constipation since starting Hydrochlorothiazide but am controlling this better. I ended up with fissures and the anal area itches when it is healing after tearing. Any ideas would be helpful. I will see a doctor if the red patches don't clear up. I had a small one like before on the hood but it went away. Thanks,
