Labial redness: Vaginal itching can be due to a yeast infection, irritation from feminine products or from tight clothing, esp. synthetics. A tiny spot that burns may be something different. A spot with a yellow-white base that is very painful can be an active herpes lesion. Those need to be tested immediately to confirm diagnosis. It's safe to try an OTC yeast cream.

Why is my vagina irritated and now bleeding after sex? The opening to my vagina has been very irritated and itchy all week. No swelling or redness. It has been dry as well. I had sex this morning, it was sort of painful. And i immediately started bleeding

It : It sounds like you are dealing with a vaginal yeast or bacterial infection. Since your vagina is dry and irritated the tissue is inflammed and having sex can irritate the tissue further thus causing bleeding. I recommend you visit a doctor for evaluation and treatment. If that is not an option for you, you can try an over the counter yeast infection medication like monistat or clotrimazole. If you do that and your symptoms do not improve then you definitely need to visit a doctor. Good luck and happy new year. ...Read more

My 6 yr old daughter has been saying her vagina is itchy but I've checked no redness or white discharge. Could she still have thrush??

Make sure underwear washed in sensitive skin products. Drinking excessive juice can cause the urine to have too much acid and irritate that area. Sometimes pinworms can move to that area so check for rectal itching. Apply vaseline to help itching ...Read more
