Irritation Of The Labia Minora And Labium Majors.?
I am 19 years old. Like the previous question regarding irritation in sanitary napkins. my problem now is that the irritation is like canker sores on the labium minus and swells and the wound is attached to the meatus. Makes it difficult for me to urinate. The wound was fused together like one flesh. what I’m afraid of is when the wound dries up, my two labium munus fuse and close. I often use cottonbuds to clean both my labium but this time the flesh seems to stick together and is difficult to clean. Especially when I pee. What should I do?

Some things you can do at home are:
