Thanks for writing in.
The most common cause of rashes around vagina is candida(yeast). But the problem is that rash can be something else.
Its important to be sure that its not herpes and thus an examination would be required. Its unlikely to be drug allergy.
You may try using candid cream again and see if rash increases or not.
Don't avoid examination at this point.
Let me know if you have any other questions
