itchy red bumps on vulva

For about a month now ive been having vaginal itching. It started as light itching with some discharge that was slightly grayish/brownish, it was also a little sore when walking or sitting a certain way. I thought it was a yeast infection so I tried the Monistat treatment, though I never been diagnosed with a yeast infection before. The symtoms seemed to go away for about a week.. then it came back. Now I have red bumps around the vulva and vaginal opening that are severly itchy.. I also have white discharge now, but its thick..not watery at all. These symtoms are becoming very uncomfortable to the point where I cant sleep at night because of the severe itch..and its bothersome during the day too. I have never been to the gyno, and I am really uncomfortable going :( Is there anything I can do at home.. I have no idea what the problem may be. Also, I am not sexually active. Please Helppp

sorry for posting here, no space in the other one

If you were sexually active, I would say definetly go to the gyno. Your discharge sounds like what I have before I start my period.  I will give you some helpful hints that may help for you.  Do not scratch!! This could only make things worse and spread bacteria around.  Instead, use a cold washcloth and hold to it.  This will help with the itch.  Are you staying really moist?  Reason I am asking is b/c this may be giving you that itchy feeling.  Try to stay as dry as possible is what helps me.  Also, do you a femine wash?  I have found that summer's eve help keep everything clean and does not bother those o so sensitive spots. These things will only provide a little relief, but a only a doctor can tell you what is wrong.  Even your regular doctor may be able to help you out if you don't want to go to the gyno.  I would suggest going to the gyno though.  It is not as bad as you may think, and besides, you should have an annual checkup anyway.
