Itchy vagina, white-heads. Yeast or bacterial infection? On Z-pack for being sick. Will it help clear the infection?

I am a 20 year old girl studying abroad. Just the other day my vagina started to really itch and I have noticed two small white-heads. The itch is coming from the area around my clitoris and I have also noticed the area is red and raw-looking. Can a yeast infection be in this area or is it just some kind of bacterial infection . I am on a Z-pack for being sick. Will this help clear the infection? I am in a foreign country and don t know where to go to see an OBGYN . Please help me! Also I don t know what to take to relieve the itch.

Hi Dear,
the itching in vagina along with redness points out to vaginal infection which you may be suffering from especially if you are sexually active.
These infections can be fungal (yeast), bacterial or mixed and as to be treated accordingly.
You have to consult a gyne and get examined and treated accordingly. Blindly taking medicines is not going to solve the problem
