Itching, redness, localized irritation near vaginal opening a day after sex, use lubrication, wear thongs during sex. Cause?

I m 45 and recently have been suffering from recurrent yeast infections or so I think. The last few times my husband and I have had sex the day after I m itching, red, and there is localized irritation on one side near the bottom of the vaginal opening. That area seems to be affected more than not. I used an over the counter last time and diflucan . The symptoms subsided. Now once again after 3 days of sex( vacation) I am burning and that one area is more irritated than the other side. We used lube as well. And I do wear thongs. I m just troubled as to why this only started 3 months ago.

Well come to HCM
Looking to your age the chances of vaginitis may be likely and this could be fungal infection and in my opinion this can be best treated with Miconazole cream with Povidone suppository to be inserted in vagina, hope this information helps.
