Strange red rash/blistering surrounding/on labia
Okay, so I guess I should start when this first starting appearing. I will start by saying I've had the same partner for nearly 3 years, and there are no other partners involved, and as far as I know we are both clean, so I'm doubting this is an std, but I wanted everyone's opinion.Just before Valentine's day, I shaved "down there". I noticed about two to three weeks later I developed what I suppose was a yeast infection, though not one I'm used to. I developed a white substance that was "shedding" (the only appropriate word for it, from what I could tell) from my labia. I used an otc cream and it went away, but it took several weeks, and the skin burned and itched rather badly, so I started using 20%-type vagicaine to deal with the pain. Then I noticed the skin was very red, sort of like heat rash that you get when you've been outside running around too much... and it has steadily gotten worse ever since... now it hurts to sit, and I have these small skin colored-to-rash colored bumps bumps that are sort of clustered (they feel kind of like ingrown hairs, but that was several months ago!) around my labia, in addition to the red swollen skin, which has now spread to the area between my anal and vaginal openings
... it's getting pretty bad. Someone recommended diaper ointment, so I've used that a little when the pain is unbearable. I've had to quit wearing underwear, because I thought it might be irritating it, but now this strange rash/bumps have spread to my left underarm... but it's almost gone from there with constant use of neosporin and diaper rash ointment, and only lasted about two weeks there, tho it's still healing.I know this is kind of long, and yes I've waited much too long to go to the doctor, but I kept hoping it'd go away... I'm rather uncomfortable around drs. I've made an appt to see a gyno, but does anyone have any idea what this might be? I've been suggested everything from herpes to psoriasis to heat rash because I'm overweight... I would appreciate anyone's help... the skin is starting to take on a slightly shriveled appearance near the bumps, but I think that's due to being this way so long... I appreciate any suggestions!The only other thing I can think to add is that I have a small white-headed cold sore on the roof of my mouth right now and have been having headaches, but those might be completely unrelated symptoms, as far as I know.
