In brief: You need an exam

Your symptoms are suggestive of a herpes simplex infection (sexually transmitted), but yeast (not sexually transmitted) may cause similar symptoms of rawness and itching.
If you also have a white, cottage cheese-like discharge, it is more likely to be yeast. The bottom line is that you need to have an exam done by a health professional. And no sex until you find out!
