A 23-year-old female asked:

I have a smooth red patch by my vagina. It’s not a bump but it is very itchy. I saw that yeast infections can spread to skin. How common is that?

Needs testing: Lumps, bumps, blisters and other skin abnormalities on the genitals need to be evaluated. An examination will be needed to know the cause and treatment. Without seeing the red patch it is not possible to draw any conclusions
