Infection vs allergy: There are several types of infection that could cause this. It could also be some type of allergic reaction. The most common finding would be a yeast infection. I would advise a trip to see your healthcare provider to get an assessment. There is no way to tell what the cause is without doing some testing and looking at the condition so i can not recommend a treatment. ...Read more

If u still have itch: Itching could be a resistant yeast, or other bacteria, or an allergic reaction to cream or clothes , or sometiems a vulvar dystrophy or can be herpes as sometimes herpes can cause itching without seeing obvious open sores, hopefully you are seeing a gyn and not a lesser provider since the most obvious treatment did not work. ...Read more

Allergy?: This is not necessarily an allergy. These symptoms may be associated with infections as well such as yeast among others. If there is a association with an exposure prior to a flair of symptoms, there may be an allergic trigger. Latex allergy with exposure to latex condoms occasionally presents this way. I suggest starting with your wife seeing her gynecologist. ...Read more

Yeast infection?: Itchy bumps in this area are usually from a yeast infection. You might try an over-the-counter yeast medication such as Monostat. If this doesn't solve the problem, you will need an exam to find out for sure what the cause is. Best wishes! ...Read more

Do I have genital herpes?! I have no bumps but my vulva is bright red and itches like crazy. This is the second time since I've had sex.

Do I have genital herpes?! I have no bumps but my vulva is bright red and itches like crazy. This is the second time since I've had sex.

Probably not herpes: Vaginal itching and vulva redness is more likely due to a yeast infection, bacterial vaginosis, or trichomonasis. Herpes can cause itching but more likely to be painful also. The lesions of herpes are more like blisters or open sores than bumps. The best way to determine what is causing the problem is to have it evaluated by a doctor who can then provide proper treatment. ...Read more

Get checked: The only way to know what this is is to be examined by your doctor. It sounds more like a yeast infection of the skin and surrounding area than something that would be passed during sex. Without an exam there is no way to know. If an over the counter yeast medication solves the problem then most likely that's all it was. Schedule a visit. ...Read more
