This answer was rated:

My labia minora is very swollen and itchy, sensitive to touch. I have had vaginal discharge,whitish-yellow for 5 days. I have no white, cottage cheese like symptoms so I don't htink it's a yeast infection. The labia majora is dry and there is a slight rash. The inside of my vagina is very red. There is no foul smell at all. I will see a doctor soon but in the mean time, I'd like to ease my mind and learn what this is that I have. I can't take the itching and burning any longer.

Most likely it is some kind of infection. It may not be yeast, but bacterial. This can be the result of a sexually transmitted infection, or sometimes they just happen and aren't related at all. If you have used a new bubble bath, soap, laundry soap or lotion lately it could be a dermatitis as well.

The doctor will get to the cause of it, so I'm glad you are going to be seen.
