Question: Itching and rashes around Vagina and Groin area

 teammate - Thu Aug 19, 2010 2:40 am

I had sex with my partner and after two days I observe that my Groin area is itching a lot and its very painful after itching and also I feel lot of itching around my Vagina ( on my walls of Vagina) and i see some rashes and also I observe a little swelling on the walls of my vagina, I feel lot of burning sensation if I pee after intercourse and it it my urine touches with walls of vagina I feel lot of pain.

Please suggest me some medication for this and which doctor to consult for this dermatologist or Gynecologist?

Thanks in Advance for your reply.

User avatar Hello,
You could see a gynecologist or a family practice doctor for this concern. It is possible you have developed a yeast infection (itching is common) and this can be treated but it's best to find out for sure if that is the problem since a bacterial infection would require different medication.

Best wishes.
