Do I have a yeast infection?

Do I have a yeast infection?

Inside my vagina has been itchy for the past couple of days. I googled my symptoms and it came up as a yeast infection. But I’m not sure if it is because i don’t have the thick milky discharge they say should come with it. I’m not sexually active so it can be an sti. I’m not sure what it could be if it’s not a yeast infection

I could also be jock’s itch, which is like a type of athlete’s foot, but on your genitals.

hi
this can be a vaginal fungal infection which is quiet common even in women who are not sexually active. this may occur due to poor vaginal hygiene.
insert vaginal antifungal pessaries for 3 days inside your vagina and take anti histaminic tablets orally. maintain good vaginal hygiene.
thanks

HI
EARLY STAGES OF YEAST INFECTION WONT HAVE MILKY DISCHARGE. SUCH DISCHARGES USUALLY OCCUR IN LONG STANDING NEGLECTED AND UNTREATED CASES OF YEAST INFECTION. YOU SEEM TO BE IN A PRETTY EARLY STAGE STILL. ORAL TABLETS WILL BE HELPFUL IF YOU START THEM IMMEDIATELY. GOOD LOCAL HYGIENE IS A MUST

Hi..
Itching is a sign of bacterial vaginosis..which could be any type of bacteria .. This can be treated with metronidazole -flagyl- taken twice daily for one week …you can find also metronidazole as a vaginal gel …

hello there
it does not feel like its an yeast infection as there is no milky kind of discharge. however there are many types of atypical fungal infections that would present in similar ways. you should maintain good hygiene of the vaginal opening and wash it everytime you use bathroom. avoid using steroid based creams
