I'm terribly sorry to bother everyone. I was wondering if injuries to the clitoris, such as a 1st degree burn, would take longer to heal than other places on the body? I unfortunately got a 1st degree burn (the story is rather funny, involving hot soup, no cup holders of appropriate size, and driving). I have contacted my doctor, who simply said if it doesn't get better, to come in. I just don't know the time frame I should give it to heal. Most 1st degree burns heal in 3-6 days. It has almost been 2 months, and while there has been improvement, I still can't masturbate. Which is driving me crazy. I am not asking for a diagnoses, just some reassurance (positive or negative) before I spend the money to see my doctor.

Oh, OW!

I'd say it's past time to see your healthcare provider, no matter what. If, after 2 months, you're still having pain or the tissue of your clitoris or vulva doesn't look like it's healed, then it's time to have someone take a look, okay?

For sure, because that's tissue in an area that stays pretty moist, I would expect a burn to take a little longer to heal, but this timeline seems excessive to me.
