Red itchy sore vagina

So I had sex for the first time... My bf didnt wear a condom and we didnt use lube.. it wasnt really "SEX" persay..he only went in an inch or so, but anyways, he didnt *** and he was tested a couple monthes ago and he is clean... but my vagina is itchy and red and sore... I know its normal to be sore for a few days after your first time. But the itchyness? Is it because of the friction? we were both pretty dry... and yeah.... I get irritated very easily... when he fingers me it feels sore too and like itchy.. and ive had this before, from other things like soap..chlorine from pools. or even wiping too much with rough toilet paper... I don't have any weird smells.. or discharge, and its been two days since we did it.

If you say your BF is clean, then maybe you have thrush, which can come and go if not treated properly. Make sure your BF washes his hands before touching you.

I am sorry to have to say this, but you really should use a condom as any contact with the vaginal area can cause STD's to spread or for you to get pregnant (he doesn't have to come inside you for it to happen).

Go to the chemist and ask for a pessary to treat thrush, use cotton panties only, do not wear tights, do not use soap in that region (you should always use a female hygiene wash as the area is more acidy, while soaps are more alkaline and this can cause infections). If symptons persist consult your doctor.

It could be a yeast infection, but it could also be due to too much friction. I would strongly suggest getting and always using waterbased lube. I would also strongly suggest making sure you're always very, very aroused before even considering intercourse. And always use a condom :-)

I think it sounds like friction.  Make sure you are completely aroused before attempting intercourse.

I had some watery discharge... not too much... im thinking... is it possible that my vagina is trying to make it self moistened because its dry? Or is it that there is water trapped in my from my shower?...

i have to agree with the other comments friction seems to be the most likely cause

if you develope any discharge or it continues you should go talk to you gyno

You have a yeast infection , I got them all the time when i was your age.
You are either washing too much or washing not enough.
DO NOT take any baths , only showers.
Tell your mom , or you, to go buy some vaginal anti- funguil cream .
Get the tube you use for 7 days.
If that doesn't work , consult a doctor immedititally, vaginal irratations
are very dangerous if not treated properly.

Also, since you do itch, make sure to wash your hands everytime after and even before.
I know that seems like common sense, but still people don't and when
they don't either they get worse because they are putting more germs and bacteria in their or on their vagina or others can get it, and it's not good to spread it.

Like some others here I have noticed that my vagina is also itchy, sore and red around the outside lips. I have looked on the net for possible infections but am not sure as to what it may be. I was just wondering if anyone knew what it could possibly be and if I could treat it myself or if I need to see my doctor and have it checked out. It has been like this for the past couple of days now.

Okays, I've been itchy for like three days now. Me and my boyfriend had sex last weekend, the condom broke so we took it off and kept going. I was kinda dry at first and didn't use lube or saliva. I know he ripped me, because there was some blood and I saw it in a mirror. I'm worried that it may have gotten infected but there is no discharge. I'm just very dry on the outside and very itchy. Its also soar to touch. I didn't really start itching untill I used soap to try and wash myself. Also I'm waiting to go to the doctor to find out if I'm pregnant, I took plan b but it may have been too late. I've had a pain in the left side of my lower abdomin (abdomen) for two days now but i think it would be too early for a tubular pregnancy.. I was just wondering.. could the itching be from me healing or something?

mine is red and itchy and it is around the vigina (vagina). I get it often and i think that it just might be dry skin. I was wondering if that is a possability. I put some cream around and it helps till the cream drys then it gets itchy again. Please help me.

I have the same symptoms. the skin around the opening of my vagina is red and dry, and im trying to figure out how i can treat that. I dont have any discharge or bumps or anything, its just a little red and sore  and dry and its been like this for a week.. my boyfriend and i had sex when i wasnt very wet, that could be the cause, but a few days ago, i discovered the same symptoms on the underside of my boyfriends penis.. red and dry scaly skin.... What could this be????

My bf and i decided to have sex bout a few days ago. we were in the car and we had a condom that has been in the car for a few weeks. He used it and now i am itching and red down there, i used a medicated douche, hoping that would help and it didn't. I also bought a maximum strength vagicaine anti-itch cream. And i still itch really bad. Is it because of the condom? Thats when it started. I am really paranoid and just wanting it to go away. Any help!?!?!

Too many ppl to answer directly. Could be yeast infections, imbalanced PH, STD's, allergic reactions anything really. Y'all should see your doctor for issues lasting more than 3 days. Oh and btw don't use a douche they are actually very bad for you. The female body is normally very good at balancing the PH levels so just stick with a feminine wash (external use only!) preferably for sensitive skin and no perfumes down there either! Here's to keeping Va Jay Jays healthy!!
