  • It could be a bacterial infection, which is different than yeast. Those need to be treated by a doctor.

  • I agree with PP. It could also be a urinary tract infection. I had on sooo bad one time that my whole area down there was irritated kind of how your describing. Went to the doc thinking it was something major and it was just my bodies reaction to the UTI. Call your doc and get in as soon as you can. More than likely it won't go away on it's own.

  • It could be bacterial vaginosis, which is basically the opposite of a yeast infection, it is when the balance is too far off the other way. I use garlic to treat both yeast and BV. It basically gives you a clean slate to start from.

  • It could be a lot of things, including and STD if you've been sexually active. Whatever it is, it needs to be diagnosed by a dr.
