In brief: Skin irritation

Yeast on the vulva can cause redness, irritation and burning.
Externally applied medications for yeast may bring on these symptoms until the infection has decreased. This is one of the reasons that Diflucan (fluconazole) by mouth may be more tolerable for treating yeast infections for many women.
