I know this may sound weird but I have noticed a white build up around my vagina and in between my lips, does this mean I have a yeast infection?

Yeast infection?: Very likely, especially if it itches. If it doesn't itch, you can just watch it for a while; it may be just normal dried out mucous discharge. If it itches, go ahead and treat with an otc cream like monistat or clotrimazole.

There's one white bump on my inner vaginal lip its been there 2 months it doesn't hurt or anything it came when I had a yeast infection what could it be

Vaginal bump: It is probably just a cyst. Get it checked if you want to know for sure, but if it doesn't hurt or change in any way, it is probably safe to just watch it.

Recovering from yeast infection. Can I use Desatin to help treat as prevent chafing on inside of the vaginal lips?

Recovering from yeast infection. Can I use Desatin to help treat as prevent chafing on inside of the vaginal lips?

Yes but one warning: Please be sure that you are not sensitive to zinc oxide on your skin. If you have used Desitin (zinc oxide diaper cream) before then you should be fine. However, if not, try it out on another body part before experimenting with your sensitive area. If you are hypersensitive to the Desitin (zinc oxide diaper cream) elsewhere, you could save yourself a lot of trouble. Baby rash powders/creams/lotions all work here, as does Lotrimin (Clotrimazole).

Since you have: Not had a yeast infection in the past you ought to be seen by a doctor and be evaluated. You could try some over the counter Mobistar for a couple of days first and if it doesn't improve then see a doctor.

Good hygiene.: Any infection can be spread, whether a fungus, virus, bacteria or parasite, not only to other parts of the body but to others. Practice good hygiene. Wash all equipment and hands after touching any infected area, dirty objects, or going to the bathroom, to avoid spreading germs. You know this!

What is wron if my vagina lips are burnin and red and when I pee it burns like crazy! I though I has a yeast infection because it was itch used vagisi?

Vaginitis: Sounds like you have an infection/inflammation on your vagina. It could be bacterial, or fungal or could be contact dermatitis from tampon etc for instance. If you are sexually active- std should be ruled out. You should go to see your doctor/gynecologist and get checked. Pelvic exam, swab and cultures would likely be needed. Vagisil only works for yeast infection, but not bacterial infection.

When I go for pap smears will an STD show up if they scrape my vaginal wall for testing? I've never been told I have an STD. Also. My vaginal lips burn like a rash would. Yeast infection?

Pap misses most STDs: The pap smear is designed to detect abnormal cells that can predict future cancer, and these changes are caused by HPV, an STD. But it does not detect any other STDs; specific STD tests (e.g. gonorrhea, chlamydia, trichomonas) need to be requested by the doctor. And yes, vaginal and labial burning often is caused by yeast. (Which of course is not an STD.) Discuss with your doctor. Good luck!

Can herpes cause small bumps to appear ALL over the outer lips of the vagina or is this something else? Had a yeast infection 2 weeks ago.

Can herpes cause small bumps to appear ALL over the outer lips of the vagina or is this something else? Had a yeast infection 2 weeks ago.

Maybe: With herpes, you may initially see a crop of small individual bumps that look like they have fluid in them, but they quickly spread and coalesce (group together). They also would go from itchy and irritating to painful in sensation. If you have even a small suspicion of herpes, then run - don't walk - to your medical provider or STD clinic for urgent evaluation and treatment. Hope that helps!
