I'm having vaginal itching on the labia but no discharge.

Customer Question

I'm having vaginal itching on the labia but no discharge. There is a white substance on the vulva/ labia area on the outer vagina. It burns when I urinate and the urine hits my genital skin. What could this be?

This is Dr. David

the white substance could be an early vaginal fungal infection.

vaginal fungal infections can cause itching and white discharge and bad odor to come from the vagina

you should see a gyn doctor and get a gyn exam

and see if you have a vaginal fungal infection.

there are over the counter antifungal agents you can also try like vagistat and monistat

let me know if you have other questions .

There's no discharge from the vagina, just on outside of it. Still could be a yeast infection?
Expert:  Dr. David replied 1 year ago.

it could be a fungal infection.

if you have sores on your labia which are very painful and tender, they could be herpes ulcers.

you need a gyn exam to know for sure.

I can't see the area.
