Itchy patches on labia came and went w/ period. Patches are present now w/out period and do not itch.

Exam needed: It's possible that the location is coincidental and that a GP or dermatologist will be as appropriate as an OBGYN, but you can expect that any of them will be a good start at Dx and probably Tx. If they feel the need, they can refer you to the best specialist. It may be a minor thing, but if it is more than that, it will be great to catch it early. Best1

Hello I have a itchy pimple inside my inner labia and it has been there for a couple of days. I recently popped it. Should I be concerned?

Possibly: The most common cause of an itchy pimple would be an ingrown hair or a blocked gland, but it's also possible that you could have an infection or something more rare, like a precancerous spot. If it doesn't heal in the next few days, you should see your gynecologist or dermatologist to let a professional look at it.

Yeast?: The most common cause of vulvar itching is yeast infection. (Contrary to common belief, yeast usually doesn't cause much discharge.) Cortisone-type creams like Fucicort often make yeast worse, not better. Stop self treatment and see a doctor for diagnosis and treatment suggestions.
