Hello

Recently I've been feeling this weird sharp pain...It comes and goes and it's not uncomfortable so i didnt mind it at all....It comes from what seems like a skin wound when im washing my genital area. Every time I wash and then I rub soap and then clean with water I feel then pain. It's like I stretched or ripped it.... It's not on my vulva....

I tried touching it to see if it would hurt if i touch it but it only hurts when I touch it after I shower and soap it.

But then I tried looking down there and there seems to be a round barely visible sort patch there.... It doesn't hurt when I touch it when it's dry...

Planning to get checked this weekend but maybe if anybody could give me an idea so i can prepare myself and not be so scared....

But to add it rarely bothers me.

Not being doctors, and not being able to see what you are describing, we really couldn't guess. It could be anything from a cut to a rash. So, going in to have it looked at by a doctor is a really good idea.

Just like the skin on any part of our body, the skin on and around the vulva can sustain an injury.

Your best chance for an answer is to get it looked at in person by a medical professional.

Additionally, though, since you mentioned that it hurts when you wash it, I'll just mention that it's good not to treat the genital area too roughly in washing. Gentle soap and water, with no rough rubbing, are enough to clean the vulva.
