Itchy/Burning Vaginal Area

For the past few day I have had a horrible itching and burning sensation in my vaginal area. It doesn't itch internally, just externally. It started itching towards the end of my period and I haven't been able to shake it. I was currently put on antibiotics for acne, could that have anything to do with it? I'v been using Vagisil to ease the pain. What should I do?

If you were recently on antibiotics I would think it is probably a yeast infection. Get some otc cream Monistat 3, or something like that. Antibiotics can cause women to have yeast infections. If that doesn't clear it up go to the Dr.

Hope you feel better soon!
