Menopause: Making Peace With Change

Sunday, September 21, 2014


This picture shows a fairly uncommon but not serious condition called syringoma. These lesions can occur in other parts of the body, and most vulvar skin conditions are much more mild. Medical conditions of the vulvar skin should to be diagnosed with an exam, and to confirm, often a biopsy has to be done. Many of the first signs of a vulvar skin condition ore itching or burning. Simple skin care suggestions can provide significant relief, and avoiding what irritates you can be just as important.. Symptom relief of pruritus, burning, and/or stinging is often accomplished with lukewarm soaks lasting 10 to 20 minutes each two to three times per day. Solutions in addition to plain tap water (those who have hard water may have to reconsider their tap) include baking soda and tap water, Burrow's solution, and oatmeal mixtures. These soaks can be made or purchased. Soaks can soften any crusts or flaking skin and restore the normal physiology of the vulvar skin. But do not use so much that you overly dry your skin, and any worsening of symptoms or shredding of skin tissues are a reason to contact your gyno.   Vulvar skin should be gently patted dry after each soak. For those who have excess moisture, the right lubricant can create a moisture barrier. Soak initially, and then use your barrier immediately after soaking to minimize evaporation and prolong the soothing. Suggestions for the composition of the moisturizers include coconut oil, petrolatum, olive oil, hydrogenated vegetable oil, and A & D ointment. For those who have an allergic component medications can be tried, but we would suggest contacting your gyno first.
