I've got a really itchy vagina and vulva, all round the clitoris and labia (both) and it's pretty red. There are white specs/flakes too.. no discharge?

Yeast: This is very likely to be a skin yeast infection. You might try an over the counter yeast preparation, used both in the vagina and outside on the skin as well. You can also see your doctor to confirm the diagnosis and treat.
