Red pancake STD is a fictitious sexually transmitted disease in women. Red pancake can refer to any condition, disease or infection of the vagina, vulva, labia, vaginal lips, clitoris, vaginal opening or surrounding area that make female genitalia appear red, inflamed, swollen, sore, itchy, etc.
When looking for red pancake disease pictures you will come across images of other diseases and conditions in females, such as vaginosis, yeast infection, genital herpes and others.
According to Urban Dictionary, red pancake is when female genitalia becomes aroused or irritated during intercourse or oral sex performed on a woman. This happens due to increased blood flow to female sex organs. In their example, two guys describe a vagina as blue waffle and an aroused vagina as red pancake.
Red pancake can also refer to a food recipe better known as red velvet pancake, usually served with heavy cream or chocolate. However, if you come across a question whether you would rather have blue waffle or red pancake, rest assured that it’s a prank because they both are slang for female genitalia.
Blue waffles, a female disease, is another fictitious STD and may refer to conditions such as herpes and genital warts. Another fictitious disease in women is “giant cheese taco disease”, which usually refers to infections with heavy discharge. Other fictitious STDs include: special fried rice disease and mustard snack disease.
Red Pancake Disease
Going back to red pancake STD (sometimes also referred to as red waffle), there’s no red pancake disease wiki or definition, since it is just slang for many possible conditions. Here is what it may refer to.
First and foremost, red pancake can refer to vaginitis – vaginal inflammation, usually accompanied by itching and discharge. If you experience vaginal irritation, have pain urinating or having sex, have an unpleasant odor particularly after sex, you should see your doctor and have tests.
Causes of vaginitis may include thrush, bacterial vaginosis, trichomoniasis, chlamydia, gonorrhea and genital herpes.
Treatment includes antifungal medicines and antibiotics.
If you suspect vaginitis, to help improve the condition you can use the following self care: keep your genital area clean and dry, avoid douching, use pads rather than tampons and wear loose fitting cotton underwear. Although there are some home remedies for vulvar itching it’s better to see a doctor to determine the cause.
Vaginal itching and red, swollen sore vulva with or without odor can be extremely uncomfortable. Labia, clitoris and vaginal opening are extremely sensitive areas with numerous nerve endings and can cause a lot of pain and discomfort, so it’s always a good idea to contact your health-care provider right away.
Other possible causes for the so-called red pancake disease include menopause, when woman’s vaginal walls thin out and become dry, leading to irritation. Also, various chemical irritants, including creams, condoms, douches, soaps and contraceptive forms can irritate the vulva and vagina, making it look like the infamous “red pancake”. Psoriasis on the genital area can cause redness and irritation. Finally, there is a rare condition called of lichen sclerosis that can cause red and white patches on the skin around vulva.
