Question: My apartment has bed bugs and yesterday morning my vagina started to itch horribly. By late last night the entirety of my "downstairs" was red, swollen, and sore. Should I go to the doctor? The same thing happened to my girlfriend but she said it went away in about 3 days. It's just so uncomfortable and embarrassing.

Brief Answer:
Are signs and symptoms of yeast infection

Detailed Answer:
Hi dear and thanks for your query.

Having these signs and symptoms have no relation with bed bugs, because this area is not predisposed to invasion with bugs.
Hence in my opinion all these signs and symptoms have relation with yeast infection.
You can start with vaginal douches with vaginal monistat cream for five days.

Best regards
