Burning Pain on Labia; Scabs/Fissures that bleed; Yeast infection??

I am getting over a bad cold and a few days ago I took several doses (no more than recommended) of a nighttime Mucinex (expectorant) pill. I also have had yeast infections in the past but I've never had one flare up this badly, if this is indeed what it is. I looked, and there are a series of small, fissures on the inside of my labia minora. Some of them looked scabbed over, with a white film over it (like a scab does when it's gotten wet) and others look very red and are bleeding slightly. It is excruciatingly painful to move my legs, making it difficult to walk or even bend over. I have done quite some research, as this pain has made it difficult to sleep, and I think the sores are a result of a severe yeast infection rather than herpes (I have not been sexually active in several months and I've only ever had 2 sexual partners and no unprotected sex). I am in desperate need of assistance for possible treatments or alternate diagnoses because I am leaving the country in less than a week and there is no way I can sit on a plane for an extended period of time in this kind of pain. Please help.

Hi. I could dream up any possible things. That's not going to help quick.
  Really, for fast relief get this diagnosed by a Doctor & use prescription medicine.  Neosporin type salve comes with pain killer in it over the counter. Pamela
