Recurrent yeast: As you apparently suspect, this sounds most like a yeast infection. Genital herpes could do this, but usually with several sores, not just redness. Recurrent vaginal yeast infections usually can be prevented by a single dose of fluconazole by mouth once a week. See a doctor to confirm the diagnosis, check for predisposing factors (especially diabetes), and treatment. Good luck!
