I had a yeast infection but the symptoms are gone, but its still itchy in the vaginal area and vulva. What is it? The symptoms disappeared on monday, but is still itchy.

Continue to apply over the counter yeast infection medication to the affected areas (on vulva etc.) do this twice a day. If you do not notice an improvement in 3 to 4 days then you may be dealing with another type of infection, and then it would be wise to see your doctor.

I have two spots in my genital region near the vulva that are slightly red, not raised, and the only symptom is they itch like crazy! What is it?

Itchy lesions in the pubic area can be caused by insect bites (including flea bites and pubic lice,ugh!). Itching in the vaginal or labial area can be caused by an allergic reaction or a yeast infection. If they don't clear up in a day or so, or if you notice other symptoms, get medical care. ...Read more
