    Vaginal Burning
    An_252697 posted:
    Ok!!! I know this threaf isn't about my particular topic/question... But it is about vaginal health:

    I think I burned/irritated my vagina from my swimming pool water. I went to ER twice suspecting bladder/kidney infection and no infection was present. It feels like I'm on fire down there, particularly around my urethra. On my third visit to ER the doc and I discovered that since no infection is present inside (after reviewing my lab tests and cultures), it had to be an irritation outside. He advised me to take cool baths with Epsom salts, apply polysporin and take ibuprofen to reduce inflammation. I'm really dyyyyyying! It's horrible!!!! Any help, suggestions, advice???

    Is it possible that you're suffering from vulvar varicosities? From the symptoms you've described it seems like a definite possibility that you've got varicose veins in your vaginal/vulvar region.

    Here's a good article that could probably help you better than I can:
