Unhappy Is this a yeast infection? What Is it?

I have red pimple like sores near the whole of my vagina, there kinda flat on the surface and hurts when I pull the skin. It sometimes itches, but not really, and for the longest time I have a stinging sensation at the top of my but crack ( but Im more focused on what wrong with my vagina).
Does anyone know what this could be? can I be allergic to something?

Re: Is this a yeast infection? What Is it?

It could be anything from an allergic reaction to something you're using, washing with, wearing, shaving, to something like vulvitis which has a huge range of causes and treatments, or it could just be that you have acne there. Are you talking about the inner labial part or outer vulva? If you're sexually active, it's possible to be an STD such as HPV or herpes, but doubtful as those have different characteristics than what you're describing. How long have they been there? Do they look just like a pimple or more like an ulcerated sore? There are so many things that it could be that it would be almost impossible to say without knowing more. I would say if it's bothering you, to see a gynocologist. You may need a cream or an antibiotic or it may very well be nothing! The pulling sensation I've heard can often be caused by wearing thong panties, but it's hard to say.
