So like the title of the thread says, I've had this cut on my inner labia for the past two weeks. It's just a little under an inch long and doesn't hurt except for when I've touched it accidentally in the shower.
I've had sex twice since discovering it (the second time I had thought it was healed - and I didn't have pain either time), but it's been a week since I last had sex and I honestly thought it was gone until I felt it today during my shower.
The only thing I can think of that might've prevented it from healing was that I had my period this past week - and changing tampons (and intercourse) might've gotten in the way of the healing process.
Is there anything I can do to help it heal?

If it starts to hurt more or look inflamed, it's probably a good idea to see a doctor about it, but for now I think the best thing you can do is not have sex and be gentle any time you might touch that area (when using the restroom or showering) until it's healed up.
