Specializes in Infectious Disease

The main infection causing vaginal itching is yeast, sometimes hard to diagnose. Some cold viruses can infect genitals by oral sex; in men, adenovirus can cause simultaneous cold or conjunctivitis (pink eye) and urethral infection. No studies in women but logically it could happen, especially if your cold is from a sex partner. If so, it wil clear up on its own. Or try an OTC yeast treatment.

If your physician exam did not include a culture, and symptoms such as described are continuing, call the physician's office for a new exam. Most yeast (fungal) infections may be difficult to detect at first.
