It could be allergy or chemical irritation, e.g. to latex (condoms), soap, perfumes, etc. Don't take chances: see a doctor soon, the sooner the better especially for accurate herpes diagnosis and effective treatment. ...Read more

Not herpes. Yeast?: If you have been having oral herpes (cold sore) outbreaks for more than a few months, it is extremely unlikely that you could have infected your own genital area. That can happen in the first few weeks of a new herpes infection, but after that the immune system prevents it. The main cause of vaginal itching and irritation is yeast infection (thrush). See a doctor for diagnosis and treatment. ...Read more
