What can cause vulvar redness that is not yeast or an STD?

by Rachel on June 21, 2011

I have had an area of redness just outside of the inner labia, next to my clitoris for a couple of months now. I thought it was yeast, and have been using an anti-fungal cream for a week with no improvement. There is no burning or itching, just mild irritation. I know for certain is not an STD, but cannot for the life of me figure out what is going on. Can anyone help?
I do always wear cotton underwear and have not changed any soaps or detergents recently.

You might have an irritation due to laundry detergent you are using or the type of underwear you are wearing. Cotton undies are the best (but not the cutest) for your feminine area down there. You might want to switch to those for a while to see if that helps. :)
