I've stumped the doctors/gynos yet again!
I had an "outbreak" late last fall of two very itchy spots the size of the tip of a needle located between the labium minora and the vaginal opening. I had countless tests and paps done through doctors and sexual health clinics, and they were unable to tell me what it was.("everything was normal") One doctor had suspected it was an allergic reaction to something, prescribed, and nothing worked. Eventually it went away on it's own, after having it for over 2 months.
And me oh my, it's broken out again. Any hunches to what it may be? How i can deal with the itching?
Ahh... Please give some advice if you can.

Do you think it could be a heat rash? Or something resulting from friction from wearing underwear that's too tight/has frilly bits/etc.?

Have you seen a dermatologist yet? If not, I'd try that next. They are experts in skin rashes and the like, so they might have a different take on it.
