It sounds like you have a Yeast infection. I know sometimes they get out of control. I am prone to them. I had one so bad one time, I can't even begin to describe it! The stores carry stuff called Monistat, it works well. Or the doctor can prescribe you a pill, I can't remember what it is called, but that works, too. The pill took a litle longer to work on my infection. I know it is horrible!
