Maybe not yeast...: Vinegar doesn't work against yeast infections (or anything else); if the itching improved with a vinegar "bath" it was probably just a coincidence. You may or may not have a yeast infection; other things also can cause genital itching. See a doctor for professional diagnosis and recommended treatment. Good luck!
