    Exclamation Vaginal Redness, Dryness, and Itchiness

    This started about 5 days ago. I've been experiencing redness, dryness, and itchiness in my vulva. This tends to get worse at night. I am not sexually active, nor have I ever been. I looked at different infections with these symptoms and a common addition symptom is colored discharge, however I have experienced no discharge. There are also a few very tiny growths/bumps on my labia minora and I don't know if those have been there before or if they are new because I haven't looked at it this closely before. I don't think they are genital warts because like I said I am not sexually active. What are some possible ideas of what this is and what I can do to make it better?

    I'm 19, so most likely not

    I rarely had discharge when I had yeast infections when I was younger. Maybe that is what is going on? If you are able to get in to see you primary care doctor or a gynecologist, I'm sure they could help you find the cause rather quickly.

    I was also very sensitive down there and would end up with sore, itchy red skin due to panty liners and pads. Maybe an allergy? Any new feminine products, soaps or laundry detergents?
