Allergy?: You may be having a reaction to clotrimazole, either allergic or direct toxicity to tissues. Would try stopping this and see what happens. If this continues despite that you should see your GYN doctor. Best wishes for a good outcome.

Infection/inflammatn: It is not uncommon to get inflammation of the clitoris. Also your urethral opening is near your clitoris and can get inflamed or infected and cause pain. You can even get a carbuncle there that is very tender- I recommend you go see your doctor to eval further.

Possible: What you describe could certainly be due to herpes. To be sure see your doctor for an exam and possible cultures or a biopsy. The doctor can help you with the pain and if it is indeed herpes you may benefit from suppressive medication.

I 42 years old I have not had a period in over a month. I have tender and itchy breasts. Itchy clitoris light cramping feeling and a lot of gas.

Several things: 1. Home pregnancy test. If negative then monitor periods and see your doctor if they stay irregular 2. Get evaluated for the itchy genitals. Yeast is most likely but there are other possibilities. 3. Mammogram once per year and a breast exam by your doctor 4. Gas x is over the counter. Miralax (polyethylene glycol) helps if there is constipation.

GYN exam: Multiple causes and you must have a GYN exam to rule out infection, inflammation, irritation or GYN abnormality. Common causes include: tight (thong) underwear, prolonged foreplay or masturbation, rough sex or chaffing. You should wear cotton boxer underwear and change twice daily. Advil or Aleve (if not allergic) will help with pain and swelling. I advise a GYN exam.
