Yeast? Herpes?: These are typical symptoms of a worse than average yeast infection. Also consider genital herpes if there are any open sores or blisters, or if pain/swelling in groin, or if any fever, headache, etc.Also yeast doesn't usually cause fluid discharge, but initial herpes often does. See a doctor ASAP -- don't try to treat yourself for yeast. Effective Rx depends on starting very soon. Good luck!
