In brief: Yeast possibly

There are several causes for itchy painful rashes in the vagina.
The most common is yeast but a trichomonas infection or herpes can cause similar complaints. Older women can experience lichen sclerosus or lichen simplex chronicus as well as allergic reactions to soaps or detergents or other chemicals that come into contact with the skin.
