My vaginal labia (the front part bellow my belly fold) is swollen. Blisters develop, and then pop and go away. The area is numb to the touch and gets itchy. I went to the doctor and she said I had jock itch. She gave me a cream but it wont go away. I also have a yeast infection that wont go away after several months.

Brief Answer:
Folliculitis and candidial infection

Detailed Answer:
Thank you for choosing XXXXXXX After analyzing your query, it could be vaginal infection which is causing all these problems. As you are having recurrent yeast infection, I suggest you to undergo PAP smear and get your blood sugars checked. Sometimes abnormal blood sugars can cause recurrent vaginal candidial infection.
Blisters develop and pop and go away---are more or less like folliculitis i.e infection of hair follicles near the labia majora.
I usually give a course of antibiotics like Doxycycline and Fluconazole tablet for such symptoms.
Clobetasol ointment can be applied locally for itching. Kindly consult your doctor for prescription.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you. In case of any doubt, I will be available for follow-ups. If you like my answers kindly rate it, and write a review as well. Please do not forget to accept it.
Thank you,
Wish you good health.
