I have an itching sensation right inside the opening if my vagina. I had my period, but I stopped using tampons after the iching started. It is very sore and uncomfortable. I was wondering if it is a yeast infection. What are the sympotoms of a yeast infection?

Dear Mia
Thanks for your questions.
Tracey is correct.  You should see a doctor if things do not clear up in a day or two. A yeast infection could be the problem but so can herpes. Over the counter products do work for yeast infections (usually associated with a vaginal discharge). Ask your pharmacist for help.
More individualized care is available at the Henry Ford Hospital and its urban campuses by calling  (1 800 653 6568). We can also arrange local accommodations through this number if this is your need. Please bring any physicians notes and lab test results that you  may be able to obtain. These will help us greatly.
