Conditions with symptom: 'flesh eating bacteria'
I am 22 years old and have been sexually active for a number of years. However, where my labia comes together towards the bottom of the vagina is actually around the urethral opening rather than the vaginal opening, and so I have a section of stretchy flesh over both the urethral and vaginal openings. This means that in order for anything to be inserted into the vagina it has to go in the entrance of this flesh (by the urethra), be pushed backwards towards the vagina, then pushed up into the opening. This causes pain during sex as the penis rubs on this flesh a lot and I lose tampons on a regular basis. I also have an enlarged and asymmetrical labia. Does anyone else have anything like this? Might I need to have surgery?
Starting yesterday after mildly violent diarrhea, I've noticed a small "bubble" of flesh sticking out of my rectum, I've tried a few times to push it back in, but it always comes back out. It's mostly just discomfort, no bleeding or anything of the sort, but I'm very worried as to what's happening. Is there a way to fix it? Will it go back in by it's self after my next bowl movement? (I haven't been eating much at all this no movements since.
See above answer or look for information on Hemorrhoids, a varicose or enlarged vein protruding from your anus. Quite common after a nasty bout of diarrhea, constipation, or childbirth. As stated, try soaking in a warm bath or using one of the over the counter creams or ointments for temporary relief. See your doctor, and the two of you can decide how to treat this.
Hi..i am 23. My vulva has two flesh kind thing inside. I mean does everyone has a bump kind thing on the upper part of the vulva?? I am scared if i m having any lump or sumthing there. Is it common? Also a flesh kind in d lower side of the vulva. Is that ok? Pls reply
It's difficult to tell if you're describing normal body parts, or if there's an abnormal lump of some kind. If what you're describing has developed recently, or if it's causing you discomfort, it would be a good idea to have a doctor look at it. Otherwise, I think that learning more about genital anatomy would help put your mind at ease. Wikipedia's articles on the vulva, labia, and clitoris could be very helpful. There are also educational sites like the-clitoris.com that might help. I suggest you look at one of the labelled vulva images on one of those pages, and use a hand mirror to make sure that you can identify the labelled structures on your own body. I get the sense that the upper bump is your clitoris, and the lower bump could be a hymenal remnant, which are both normal, but I'm not sure if my guesses are correct. Have a look at some labelled images or diagrams, and see what you think.

For the past 8 months I have been unable to have proper intercourse because It's become painful and I don't get turned on as easily any more, this all occurred after I think I had bacteria vaginosis, I went to the doctors and they gave me treatment but ever since I havn't been able to have intercourse without pain. I had a swab and my bacteria levels are fine I just want a solution because its ruining my relationship
I also suffer from HS, but my condition is getting worse. I have been on antibiotics on numerous occasions and I am due to get the lesions surgically removed from under my arms. The difference with mine is that when they do burst, the skin around that area is soft and weak due to the strain of the build up of puss underneath. So, when the lesions do finally burst, a chuck of flesh hangs out from the opening. Now I have two small chunks of flesh hanging out from under each arm and I am really concerned. It will greatly increase my risk of acquiring further infection and also causes hygiene issues. Is there anything you would recommend? I have tried silver from the GP to help close the wound but nothing to date has worked effectively.
Australian Tea Tree oil wash. QVC sell this in litre bottles - quite expensive but can be diluted. This not only is an antiseptic wash - but stops the nasty niffs too.
thas exactly like mine its like something eating your flesh away its quite upsetting,i do bath using tea tree oil to try and keep it clean as mine is constantly drainning with puss,my gp has tried aquacel with me its a seeweed lint stuff and apparently its supposed to heal the holes that this skin complaint is leavingxxi have been suffering with this since the age of 14 im now 43 and a specialist did say smoking dosent help itxx
Hi all, ive had this thing sticking out of my vaginal opening, its round-ish and about 2cms long, like a tube but its just all flesh, i dont feel anything when its touched. I suspected that is was just my hymen, and ive read that your hymen can break even if your a virgin (which i am). But then i read that the remnants of the hymen are usually found on the bottom of the vaginal opening and this piece of flesh is protruding out of the top, i checked the bottom and there was another, smalle piece there too, is it normal to have 2 pieces of the hymen at both ends of the opening or should i be worried??
I suggest you see your Doctor. What you're describing sounds a lot like a prolapse and what you are seeing is infact your cervix. The cervix itself has no nerves, so you don't feel anything when it's touched, that's why I think it's your cervix and what is concerning me. One of two things will happen, either I'm right or I'm wrong, either way you will know for certain what's wrong and get proper treatment if necessary.
Hi i'm 21. 3weeks ago i had pyelonephritis. when i went to the doctor for follow up, the test showed that there was no bacteria and that the wbc in the urine had decreased considerably but then after 2 days i went back for the urine test and this time there was presence of bacteria in the urine plus an increase in the wbc in the urine. the doc said it's probably from a vaginal yeast infection since the culture test showed that presence of bacteria was clinically insignificant and that it commonly occurs after use of antibiotics. it's been three days now since i've taken the fluconazole pill for the yeast infection and i can still see that my urine is a bit cloudy and a bit oily with pointy things in it that look like small bubbles. so now i'm getting worried. does anyone have any idea if the urine is weird and may indicate another underlying problem???
Hi, Im a young female who has great difficulty using tampons, to the point I've been unable to use them. The only way i can describe it is that there is not enough room, ive tried everything and every type! I fear my attempts may have caused some damage now however. Recently, when removing the partially inserted tampons, a piece of flesh has appeared at the opening. It can sometimes appear blue/black at different stages of my cycle, and is about 0.5-1cm long. For about six hours after this happens, sitting down can be quite uncomfortable and within 24 hours the flesh appears to disapear again, though this time seems to be getting longer. Its as though part of the inside of the vigina is turning inside out. (The visual and physical pain of this is also making me terrified of sleeping with someone!) I was treated for an imperforate hymen about six years ago, and I'm also currently a virgin, should this information be relevant. Thanks
