question about yeast infections adult content

I am not sure if I have one or not, but I do know that I am extremely itchy "down there". But it's more or less right around my clit. It's kind of hard to explain, but if youre bladder is an upside down triangle, and the point of the triangle is the tip of your private area, its extremely itchy right at the point of the triangle. Does that make any sense?? It isn't itchy anywhere else, except for there (my clit), and sometimes on my labia. What can I use to help ease this pain. Because it does get painful after I itch it.

  • Go get a hand mirror and check things out more closely. Could be herpes. If you don't see anything, try treating it with topical anti-fungal cream (since its not an internal yeast infection), and maybe switch laundry detergents.

  • Best advice...go see a dr if it's been going on for more than a few days. It's better to be safe than sorry.

  • A yeast infection burns and itches at the opening, and inside.. the pain isn't centered around the clitorus.

  • LOL... Sounds like you have a yeast infection. You would hae to go to a dr to confirm it though. You may need an antibiotic as well as some cream...

  • It definitely does not sound like a yeast infection. I've had tons of them. It's an internal itch, not a clit itch. IDK what you have, but it's not yeast.

  • Hi there,

    I’m working with the Monistat® Brand to address common misconceptions about curing yeast infections. In response to the question and responses above, I want to share this video featuring Dr. Suzanne Gilberg-Lenz, an OB/GYN, which we hope you’ll find helpful:

  • I haven't had sex in 5 years, so I don't think it could be anything sexual related.
