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.
Yeast is likely: Sounds like a fairly classic presentation of a vaginal yeast infection. Over the counter yeast creams are available. If not improved with this then an evaluation by an Obgyn is warranted to determine what else might be happening
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??
Probably not: Before puberty, an internal yeast infection is unlikely. Irritants are usually the cause. Make sure no bubble baths or excessive soap use during bathing. 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
I just finished amoxicillin, now I have a yellow mucousy discharge from my vagina. No swelling, no redness, light itchiness. What could this be?
Yeast? Other?: The timing suggests a yeast infection. However, yeast usually causes itching and irritation, with not much discharge; and yellow discharge wtih mucus goes along with other infections, including STDs. Amoxicillin doesn't treat gonorrhea or trichomonas and is only partly effective against chlamydia, so STD testing is in order if you might be at risk (or any doubt about it). See your doctor soon.
Red rash around my vagina. No bumps, no specific sores, no blisters, no itchiness, just redness and a burn like feeling when there is friction.
Could be many things: From allergy to yeast infection. Best see a health practitioner.

Not healthy, no harm: A vagina being red and itchy all the time could come from a permanent overgrowth of yeast. For yeast to be present excessively there are a number of reasons: a woman taking birth control pills, being on an IUD, having a diet high in carbohydrates, suffering from diabetes. First thing would be to test for the presence of yeast, then go down the list of all the things that favor growth of yeast.
Hair bumps: The perineum is very sensitive to the things women use to shave the area. Not using the right shaving lotion, old razors and other issues often times cause they bumps. Try a product called or coochie shaving cream. Some women also say waxing leaves fewer bumps as well.
