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

I have this irritation on my labia majora and my inner leg I got it from my husband after sex, little white ash-e look and it itches like a rash?

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

Could also be an irritation reaction to something you're applying to the area. Anyway you need another doctor exam. In the meantime, ice in a plastic bag, or doing aveeno (oatmeal) soaks can be soothing. Good luck. ...Read more
