labia becoming none existent

I am concerned that my labia major is almost none existent and the little I can see is fused to my labia minor and this is also becoming smaller. The whole area looks deformed. Should I try and get to see my GP which I think may be very difficult with only telephone appointments or previous prescriptions repeated. Or carry on using dermovate when I have an itch as the GP some three years ago prescribed.

Re: labia becoming none existent

I'm sorry to hear about this problem. It does sound as if you do need a careful thorough physical examination after an adequate history has been taken from you about length of symptoms and what treatments you've used etc. Labial size does very hugely between every woman, but advice on exactly where to apply your topical therapy would be very helpful for you. Please insist that your GP does exam you first.
