Genital skin concerns
Posted on: 03/04/2008
I woke up yesterday morning and my clitoris was very sensitive for no apparent reason. As I walked around the house it became painful, and has stayed the same - not gotten worse - since becoming painful. I can't really see it very well, but there appears to be a red spot. I was wondering if you knew anything about clitoral pain and if perhaps it might be irritation from something. When my clothing, or in fact ANYTHING, touches it, it is immediately painful. It feels like being pinched very sharply. If you don't know, I understand. Thanks for your time.
Ouch - and I am sorry, but it sounds like something a doctor would have to look at. I can suggest a warm bath with some baking soda though if it still hurts when this is posted.
