I HAVE THIS CONDITION IN THE VAGINAL AREA, ALONG SIDE THE OPENING TO THE VAGINA. IT IS AN ITCHING AND REDNESS CONDITION AND I SWEAT IN THAT AREA ALOT. I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW WHAT I CAN DO FOR THIS ITCHING AND REDNESS AND WHAT CAUSES THIS.

An itchiness and redness condition in an area in which you sweat a lot sounds like a fungal infection. I would recommend calling your MD for an appointment to examine the area. While you are waiting for an appointment you could try topical anti-fungal cream, available without a prescription in the pharmacy. Here is a link to a reliable site:
