i have had painful genitals for about 6 weeks now and no one seems to be too worried except me. googling my syptoms around, each entry that comes up has the word "herpes" in it. this is very frustrating because i have been to 3 doctors and had surgery in between but all i get when i mention my syptoms is a roll of the eyes...

my labia and anus are burning off and on and painful. i don't feel sick. have not been sick. have no pimple, blister, lumps or anything like that. no discharge, no pain during urination, no itching... but ***n it hurts and burns and there's got to be a reason...

i've thrown away all my non-cotton underwear, thrown away laundry detergent, laundry sheets, regular bar soap...and i just want to know what the ***l is happening to me.

every time i google painful or burning genitals i get "herpes" but then, i guess i could google migraine headaches and get all kinds of depressing diagnosis... what if i really had herpes and no one finds out and it gets worse of i end up infecting someone else?!

  • Maybe your dehydrated. Try drinking lots of ice water and see if that helps.

  • It's not all in your head, as some may say. Try googling "vulvodynia". Basically it is any type of vulvar pain. It has a wide coverage of types of vulvar disorders, but the common symptoms pain, burning, and itching. Might be worth checking out, and while there is no "cure" and docs aren't really sure what causes it, there are some great remedies for pain management ranging all the way from topical creams to medication. Hope this helps, I know how you're feeling.
