I would be happy to helpAny redness that you can see? Any bumps?
- Yeast infection definitely a possibility... I would start with over the counter monistat creams which usually do the trick... give it a week or so... if not improvement after the cream, you will need a doctors appointment to get a prescription for something more potent like diflucan (fluconazole pills)- Less likely but still possible -- bacterial vaginosis... your doctor will check for this if the monistat doesn't work.Until this gets cleared up I would avoid intercourse as the friction tends to irritate the vagina... if you do have intercourse use LOTS of lube
Best Wishes and Hope you feel better.
