    love to shop girl,


    Did you ever find a solution to your symptoms?  I am not a doctor and can't diagnose you, but the redness and itchiness can by symptoms of a qide variety of conditions, as indicated by the other posters.  It could be just a yeast infection, but without a more detailed description, we can't tell much more than that.  Hopefully by now you've had the opportunity to see a doctor for some treatment.


    Please do consider returning to the site to let us know how you are doing!  I'm sure your experience could be helpful to others on the site!


    Best of luck!

    Vaginal redness and itching can be due to a lot of things: yeast infection, too much friction, or other STDs. Do you have any sores present? I would go to the doctor to get checked out because it could just be a yeast infection. When I get herpe outbreaks, I am swollen and itch in only the spot where the sore pops up. But, everyone is different.

    if there is no sores present and its just swollen and itchy, it is more than likely just a yeast infection and can be very easily cured, i get yeast infections ALOT!!! dont know why, but probably just a hormonal inbalance.
