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?
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.
