I'm a 42 yr old female. For about a month I've been dealing

Hello. I'm a 42 yr old female. For about a month I've been dealing with what I believe is my first ever yeast infection. I see small amounts of white accumulating in between my labia/vulva and occasional itching. Because of the long wait time to get an appointment w my own OBGYN, I've been home treating w apple cider vinegar and water compresses (not douching). I have no abnormal vaginal discharge or symptoms. I had two full term pregnancies and natural deliveries (last one 8 years ago). I've been with the same partner for 26 years and we are monogamous. Does this sound like peri menopausal related? I'm baffled as to why I'm experiencing this now when I've never had any of these issues before.

I started to use Sweetspot labs wash for my feminine

I started to use Sweetspot labs wash for my feminine hygene.., I started to mildy itch about 8 days ago, but I thought that was due to my hair growing back out from waxing.., as of 3 days ago, I have noticed slight swelling around my genital and it was red this morning and itchy. There is no discharge or pain..., is there an OTC product I can use to ease the itchiness and calm down the swelling? FYI, I went back to my DOVE no scent gentle soap for the washing and made sure no lotion touched my vagina this morning, and I feel like that helped a just little bit but then again, it may just be psychosomatic..., thank you so much for your help.

I had my yearly papsmear and it was normal, everything was

I had my yearly papsmear and it was normal, everything was ok. On the report though under the infection section it stated, "shift in flora suggestive of bacterial vaginosis" or something of that nature. I had this one time before many moons ago, but when I called the nurse said that they don't use that to diagnosis bacterial vaginosis and it was just suggestive, maybe my ph could have been off or something. My question is, should I not be on an antibiotic for it, or no.
