I have a quick question. I have some itching on the outside

Customer Question

Hello! I have a quick question. I have some itching on the outside top of my vagina (on the lips). There is no redness, discharge, or sores of any kind. I have had unprotected sex with a partner that I have been intimate with for a year. Is this an STD? I've had the symptoms for about 3 days
JA: How long have you had the symptoms? What seems to make the symptoms worse or better?
Customer: 3 days
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: I have not done anything different. Other than try to keep it dry as much as possible

Let me at the outset tell you that these symptoms of itching outside top of vagina are not due to STD.

This can be due to;

1) Sex due to inadequate lubrication.

2) Rough sex.

3) Mild yeast infection.

This should be self limiting.

If the itching persists for next couple of days; you may consider applying over the counter yeast cream.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.
