I have a cut on my inner labia for about 10 months. I think I got it from my last yeast infection. It hurts when I tought it. How can I treat it?

Yeast. You need to be seen by a doctor. Over the count year regimen like monistat can be used if you get relief then it is most likely yeast. If no good improvement you may still have yeast but perhaps you will benefit from prescription strength yeast medications.

I had what I thought was a yeast infection and used monostat1. Now I have small white bumps along inner labia. Could I still have a yeast infection?

Hard to tell. With persistence of abnormality or discomfort I will recommend a GYN consult. Are the white bumps without symptoms? Do they itch, hurt, any associated discharge, are they spreading? These questions and more will need clarification in order to gain insight to the cause and appropriate therapy recommended. Yeast infection is unlikely. In network consultants are available to help. Take care. Read more...

White spot. See your dermatologist for an appropriate diagnosis.Lichen sclerosis et atrophicus can give white areas on labia. Vitiligo is a condition where there is loss of melanocytes and the skin gets very white. Often it starts around body orifices.

Probably herpes. Association of lesions with hairs is atypical for herpes, but your gyn's opinion on examination is more important. Were you tested for herpes and yeast? If herpes is suspected, you should have been started on treatment immediately with oral valacylovir or acyclovir. Waiting for a test result may be too long for it to help much, and the drugs are harmless. Discuss with your doctor. Read more...

Many possibilities. Lumps, bumps, blisters and other skin abnormalities on the genitals need to be evaluated. An examination will be needed to know the cause and treatment. Yeat is certainly one of the many possibilities. You could try an over the counter yeast cream while waiting on a doctor visit. Read more...

Red and swollen vulva, not a yeast infection as I took the medication and it did not make a difference. Not an sti as I am a virgin. What is this?

Resistant yeast. A chemical or allergic reaction could do this, e.g to detergent, soap, etc. Or maybe still yeast; a small percentage of yeasts causing vaginal infections are resistant to the "azole" drugs usually used for treatment (miconazole, clotrimazole, fluconazole, and many others). See your doctor to reconfirm the diagnosis. Alternative types of yeast treatment are available. Good luck! Read more...
