Vaginal Tear latest Post

Hello everyone,

I realized that my first post (vulva/ vaginal tear) went into too much detail and so I think the health issue I am currently having (which is only the tear) was not clear. Sorry about that, I went into too much background. I changed the message to make it more clear. I didnt want to post it under the original post since every one will end up reading the old post first and they may not see the latest post at the bottem. Hope this is ok.


I had a simple irritation to a new lotion I was using and a Dr. misdiagnosed me as having hpv. She put an acid over the entire vulva area to make the (so called) hpv go away. So now, because of her inexperience, I now have a small tear or crack in the vulva area, near the vaginal opening, right before you get to the perineal area. The acid made the skin tear! I go in with a simple product irritation and I come out with a permanent tear.

I remembered that when the skin was done peeling (right after the acid treatment was done), I noticed that there was one spot, right outside the vaginal opening, that was bleeding. This is where the tear is now. So the acid must have made the skin crack since that specific area was just fine before the acid treatment.

This small tear never seems to heal. I wont feel any pain until I have sexual intercourse with my husband. It then seems to reopen and it bleeds a little. And then it hurts for about a week. It's been two years since I got the tear, and it never heals.

Ive tried estrogen creme, hydrocortisone cream, neosporen , nothing heals it. It just reopens after every time we have sex, or even if the area is just touched. I'm guessing it could be because that area is closed up, no air really gets to the tear. It's not healing like other cuts I have had on my arm, leg or other places. The only difference I can think of is that the area is always moist and no air reaches it.

Does any one know of any way to heal this small tear ? I am afraid that it will be like this my whole life. Another Dr. said that we can try to re-cut the tear and then stitch it up, but she said it might not work. I'm guessing that could also make it worse.

Any one happen to have any advice?

Thanks so much,

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
you could bathe area with a few drops of calendula tincture in lukewarm water to heal when there - this will help it heal properly. You should only use this if you know it is not infected.
Nit Ac is used for cracks/fissures which develop on areas where the inner mucus membrane meets the outer skin (vagina, nose, rectum).

Hi Erica, Thank you for your advice.

I was wondering what Nit Ac was. I tried to look it up on the internet and could not find any thing. Is Nit Ac short for some thing, is there another word I can type in when looking it up.

Thanks, Jeanne

Nitricum Acidum. Go back to home page of this website and scroll down to the homeopathy store. Click on the letter N, then scroll down to Nitricum Acidum. However, a newcomer to homeopathy may find it difficult to make heads or tails of the description. May be better to trust advice given by those with more experience. At least give it a try. Calendula is excellent for wound healing and as Erika explained, nitricum acidum may help because of the specific area affected.

I'm in the same situation with the vaginal tear. Did you try anything? And if so did it work?
tggrr2 last decade
I think we are dealing with a vaginal fistula here and the best remedies for that are Calc carb and Silica ,

Personally I would use the combination that Prof Kent wrote up Calc Sil , and in this case would use either 3x 0r 6x twice a day for about 10/14 days -- but stop as soon as the condition starts to heal.

The body will take the work up from that point.

So use the combination until I no longer tear during sex?
That's when I tear and am miserable afterwards.

Hi tggrr2,

So far nothing has worked. I sent out emails to widwifes to see if any one had an idea. One mentioned that if I happen to have a low grade yeast infection, one that is so slight that I don't even know I have it, that may prevent it from healing. I'm not sure about that, I don't think Ive had a yeast infects for 2 years or so. Just incase, I made an appt. with an OBGYN to be tested and to see if she has any ideas.

How did you get your tear? How long have you had it? Have you tried many things to have it heal, if so, what did you try?

For years I was treated for a yeast infection. Then I saw a doctor who said I had hpv when they did a biopsy. So he put me on medication and I ended up with a horrible allergic reacation. It was so bad that I could hardly go to the bathroom it burned so bad. Then they sent my biopsy to UCSF and they said I was sensitive to soaps and things. So I went hyproallegenic and using dreft soap for my underwear and towels. It is better not having everyday irritation and redness but I still tear. Everytime my husband and I make love doesn't matter how lubed I am, I still tear. Now it is getting worse. Don't know if it is scar tissue or it just never heals. I'm going to the doctor to see if laser therapy will help. Don't know for sure. I've tried Rescue Remedy which helps with the redness and irritation when I get it.
That's all I've used.
Good luck.

Sorry I didn't clarify. Hpv was negative and I never had it.

Hi Tggrr2,

You had mentioned that a doctor said he thought you had HPV and he put you on medication that you had aterrible reaction to. The same thing happened to me. The doctor thought I had HPV, she gave me some thing called Aldora, it was a cream. After putting it on the first day, the area became bright red and it burned worse than it ever had. I thought, "this stuff is going to make me worse" so I stopped using it.

It sounds like the same situation as me, no matter how much lubrication we use, I still tear also. It's like the tear gets stretched open.

I went to the doctor last week. She asked if I have used Estrogen cream. I actually did use it, but only for about 4 weeks. She said that I should try it for 6 months, 3 times a week before I go to bed. I should put it right on the area that keeps tearing. She said that the acid treatment that the doctor did, made my skin thin in that area and that's why it is tearing. She did say that it should heal though. But since it's not, she thought I should at least try the estrogen. This builds the skin up, makes it thicker. She gave me samples so I am going to try it.

Be careful when a doctor recommends a treatment. Make sure you look every thing up on the web to check if it is some thing that can possibly make things worse. The first doctor that I went to for just a simple irritation, ended up putting that acid on me when I didnt need it and now my skin is thin in that area and tears. If I would have researched it first I would have never let her put that stuff on me. Another doctor, that was trying to heal the tear, gave me a cream, don't remember what it was, I used it for 2 weeks and then I looked it up on the internet. It turns out that this product, if used too long, can thin the skin out. That's the last thing I need, that would make it worse. I think the doctors mean well but some of them are not fully informed on all aspect of the products.

I mentioned the laser therapy to the doctor, she said that you should be careful because depending on what they are doing, it can thin the skin also. I'm not sure exactly what is done in this treatment.

The doctor gave me a referral to an oncologist, a gynecologist that specializes in caner of that area. She said that when her office comes across some thing that they normally do not see, like a tear that is not healing, they refer them to the onacologist because this type of doctor has seen much more rare cases then they have. I guess I will give it a try, I don't know if they can help me, but I really want this tear to go away so I am willing to investigate every thing. I don't want to give up.

What is the laser therapy procedure, how does it work?

I'm glad I found you on this forum, it helps to share information with some one who is going through the same thing.

Hi passkey,

I was wondering if you could tell me a little more about it. I am new to Homeopathy and I just don't understand what calcare silicata is. I read the post about it, but it was mostly symptoms.

What exactly is it made of, what form is it in-lotion, liquid. Sorry for all the questions : ) I tried looking it up on the internet but I didn't have any luck as to finding a site that really explains it.

Thanks so much for posting. I'm looking forward to learning more about it.

Hi Jeanne-
Yes, he put me on Aldera. Horrible stuff. The infertility doctor we were start to see took my biopsy and sent it to a pathologist. She said I was sensitive to soaps. So I switched to dreft soap for washing underwear and towels and Cetaphil to use for everyday soap. I was told not to wash that area everytime I took a shower. That did help for the irritation I was having but not the tearing.
I have a doctor's appt. on the 24th of June. So sick of tearing each time and then being miserable. Hard to try to have a baby. Do you know what strength of estrogen cream or the name of it?
I believe they put me on the same cream. It thins the skin. I will have to mention to my doctor about the oncologist. I just heard about the laser treatment. If it's not recommended then forget it.
Will ask my doctor and see what she says. I've dealt with this for so long it's depressing and fustrating.
Glad I found you also as I felt like I was the only one.

Take Care
Hang in there and hope the estrogen works for you.

Hi, How long have you had the tear for. I think I am going on 2 years or so.

The Estrogen cream is called
(Premarin) it says that each gram contains 0.625 mg onjuguatedd estrogens.

You said you used estrogen cream. How long did you use it for? If you used it for awhile and it did not work, maybe I shouldnt use it either. Especially since you said it thins the skin. I thought it built up the skin.
Maybe I didnt do enough research on it. Did a doctor mention to you that it thins or did you find research on the internet. Thanks for the information.

If you're worried that the estrogen cream isn't right for you, ask your doctor before stopping the treatment. She may need to know in case there's withdrawal symptoms she can tell you about.

Here's some info on Premarin Conjugated Estrogen cream: http://www.medicinenet.com/conjugated_estrogens_vaginal_crea...

Best of luck to you! I hope you heal quickly!

Hi Jeanne-
The cream that I used was the one that said it thins the skin like you used. I have not used the estrogen cream. Sorry for the confusion. I will check on the internet and see what I can find.
Good luck.

Hi Nancy,

I think the cream that I used that can thin the skin was called Clobetasone.
I stopped using it after I read about it.

About 6 months ago another doctor gave me another cream that was not as strong, it was hydrocortisone ointment 2.5 percent. I think this can thin the skin also. I didnt really use it much so I don't know if it will work.

I mentioned the estrogen cream to my mother and she said it can cause cancer. Great!! I read the paper that came with it and it said alot about cancer. That might be if you use it long term though.

It also said that you should
not use estrogen cream if you are trying to get pregnant, just wanted to let you know.

I'm only using a small amount so I don't know if there are any cancer risks.

What caused your tearing, was it after you used the Aldora, or was it before that. Or did it just appear out of no where? Or did some thing else cause it?

Hi Orume,

Just wanted to send a note to thank you for the estrogen link.


jeanne311 last decade
You're very welcome, Jeanne.

Make sure to take *all* information into consideration, so you can come to a decision together with your doctor.

I wish you the very best! :-)

Hi, I am 34 years old and I have been having skin problems since I turned 30. Before age 30, my skin was great. When I was 29 I started having bowl problems or IBS. Then I started having acne about a year later. then I started burning and having a red swollen rash on my vagina area. I've been to 2 gynecologists, a dermatologist, and a urologist about the rash on my vagina and they all seem to think it is an allergy. the dermatologist seems to think my body makes to many histamines which makes my skin react easy. I've tried antihistamines and hydrocortisone cream and nothing helps. It gets a little better but it never goes away. My acne got a lot better but I cannot get rid of the burning rash. Sometimes I wonder if it is my hormones that changed when I turned 30. I'm like you. I don't know what to do anymore. I'm so tired of burning. I've tried Benadril and Claritin but it did not help. My rash does not itch at all, it just burn real bad and it is swollen. Some days it burns all day and all night but when it heals a little, it will only burn a little right under where my uran comes out. It also stays red right there. I hardly ever get rid of the burning and swelling completely. The burning is a lot better when I am in bed but this is because I am in a wheelchair all day. I cannot walk because I have cerebral palsy. My rash gets real bad again with any type of rubbing or wormth due to cloths, sex, a warm shower or anything else. I keep thinking it could be a food because it stays red right under where I uranate and I get a strong urge to pee all of a sudden. I've been checked for an infection about 4 times but they find no bacteria. I've never had food allergies so I don't know if food could cause this. I've alwys had problems with bladder infections after sex but I've always been real healthy besides this. I do have white discharge almost everyday. Doctors have taken test for bacteria and yeast but they all came back negative.

Hi Suziemb-
That's how mine started was an irritation. They tried me on everything. I was told to wear only light colored cotton underwear, only use Dreft soap when washing underwear and towels and use a second rinse, also to use cetaphil to use instead of soap. No bubble bath stuff. Also, I had to get rid of all my dark towels. I have to bring my towels whenever we go somewhere just in case. When it gets really irritated I bought a product called Rescue Remedy and used it everytime I went to the bathroom. You can get in a health food store. It's a natural product. It stings a little/burns when you first put it on but it goes away.

Have they thought about giving you predisone. That's what they had to do when I had a horrible reacation to Aldera cream. I could barely go to the bathroom as it burned so bad. They said I had a severe allergic reacation. Have them give you a shot and put you on a course of it. See what happens.

Good luck
