Hard to know: It may be recurrence of the yeast infection, or you may have an associated infection which has not been diagnosed, go see your doctor and get examined while you are having symptoms.

Dysuria: Dysuria is the feeling of pain, burning, or discomfort upon urination. Although dysuria frequently indicates the presence of a urinary tract infection (UTI), it can have a variety of causes. Dysuria should always trigger a visit to a health-care professional for evaluation and diagnosis. http://www.emedicinehealth.com/dysuria/article_em.htm#dysuria_overview

Yes: A simple bladder infection in pregnancy can be treated with antibiotics over the course of 7 days typically. Prolonged antibiotic therapy is not usually necessary unless an infection involving the kidney has been diagnosed and initially managed with treatment doses of antibiotics. Following treatment, a lower dose antibiotic may be used to prevent recurrence for the remainder of the pregnancy.

Cyst: Swelling at the opening of the vagina can be a Bartholin's gland cyst. When the duct becomes blocked, fluid accumulates. They can frequently become infected and cause an abscess with tenderness. Treatment usually involves opening the cyst to allow drainage and can be performed in the office with local anesthetic. Consult your physician for further evaluation.

OTC remedies: You can use over-the-counter remedies if the symptoms are really bad. Keep in mind though that the hormone changes of pregnancy cause an overgrowth of yeast that is not dangerous and does not need to be treated unless it is causing severe symptoms.

Atarax (hydroxyzine): Atarax (hydroxyzine) does not cause itching rather, stopping the drug causes the suppressed itch to come out once again.
