Could be yeast: Your symptoms could be from a yeast infection, but you really shouldn't be try to guess at it. Better to see a doctor. If that's just not practical, you could try an over-the-counter yeast treatments. Look for active ingredient ending in -azole (clotrimazole, miconazole, etc). Don't spend extra; the cheapest is just as good as others. But for sure get care if still no better in a few days. ...Read more

Yeast: Itchiness in the vagina is nearly always yeast. Itchy and sore, definitely can go together when a woman has a yeast infection. You can see a doctor for confirmation or you can try otc anti-fungal and see if it gets better with that. I typically recommend a 5 or 7 day regimen. If not better in a few days, make an apt to see a doctor. Good luck! ...Read more
