Good evening doctor, I want to ask. Is it dangerous if the color of vaginal lips is milky white? The lips of the vagina look like milky white and when I touch they are easily torn, do I have a vaginal disease? Honestly I am very worried about this. Please answer, thank you.
Thank you for the question.
The vaginal lips are arranged by a layer of skin and mucosa on the inside. Naturally, this vaginal lip is the same color as the rest of the skin, but slightly reddish on the inside. As for your vaginal lips whose color is milky white and are easily torn apart it might indicate:
Congestion of dead skin cells in your vaginal area Seborrheic dermatitis Vaginal infections, for example due to fungi, bacteria or other microorganisms Psoriasis Other factors, such as xerosis, post-inflammatory hypopigmentation, hormonal disorders, drug side effects, vaginal atrophy, etc. Can not be ascertained the exact conditions that underlie your complaint if there is no direct examination. Therefore, early, you should check yourself directly to the doctor or dermatologist and sex, right? Depending on the cause, later the doctor can give you a different treatment.
In the meantime, you just need to keep your vagina clean. Avoid holding the vagina with dirty hands. Also avoid excessive rubbing of your vaginal area. Do not carelessly use soap, fragrance, sexual lubricant, or pantyliner around the vagina. Do not also have free sex. Do not forget, wear loose underwear, the material is soft, and replaced regularly at least 2 times a day.
Hope this helps ...
