Hello,
Thank you for your question.
I am Dr Saha, I shall try my best to help you.

Since when are you having it?

Do you have any other symptom, pain, itching, discharge?

Did you use any medicine?

Did you have any test?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I had some itching and a little bit of discharged that I thought was a yeast infection after completing my antibiotic regimen. I purchased monistat 3 and that seemed to help with the internal vaginal itching. But, my vulva area is raw, sore, VERY swollen and red. When I void, the urine burns this area. Also, the opening to my vagina is so swollen that I can not even insert a tampon. What could be wrong

Thank you for the information,
I am sorry for your health condition.
The symptoms can be due to an infection or inflammation.
An allergy can also play a role.
Urine is irritating the inflamed area.
As the swelling is too much, I feel you need to take an examination by doctor.
Swab test can be taken to rule out any other infection.
You can take zyrtec or claritin for relieving itching.
Warm sitz bath would help to reduce the swelling, burning & itching.
