May be yeast: The only way to know what this is is to be examined by your doctor. It may be a yeast infection. If an over the counter yeast medication solves the problem then most likely that's all it was. Other possibilities include lichen sclerosis, lichen simplex chronicus, allergic reactions and psoriasis. Schedule a visit. ...Read more

My labia majora feels like im getting a rash and I am not sexually active at all. Watery clumpy cottage cheese like discharge. Itchy on clitoris hood.

Yeast infection: An itchy vagina with clumpy cottage cheese discharge is a classic description of a yeast infection. You can try using an over the counter yeast medication.

Day3 period, vagina very itchy, labia minora nd area around clitoris & lips is very red very and itchy. Been like that 4 days. Used daktacort nthg hapned?

Likely yeast: Red and itchy is almost always yeast. But it could also be an allergic reaction, or something else. Daktacort contains both an anti-yeast and a steroid, so in theory it should address the two main issues. Unfortunately, there is a lot of "resistant" yeast in the world, which the Daktacort may not kill. I would recommend seeing a GYN for an exam, to rule out other problems. ...Read more

Itchy pubic area directly above clitoris. Clitoral hood has a weird blister or raw lesion. Rawness between labia minora and majora. No STDs or stis?

You need an exam: Your symptoms are suggestive of a herpes simplex infection (sexually transmitted), but yeast (not sexually transmitted) may cause similar symptoms of rawness and itching. If you also have a white, cottage cheese-like discharge, it is more likely to be yeast. The bottom line is that you need to have an exam done by a health professional. And no sex until you find out! ...Read more

Often: Often times you can have a yeast infection that is more on the outside (labia/clitoris) than on the inside of your vagina. Buy an over the counter vaginal yeast infection medication like Clotrimazole or monostat. You can apply the cream to the affected areas twice a day for about a week. If you do not notice an improvement then you may be dealing with a bacterial infection. At this point you should see your doctor.
Take care. ...Read more
