How can I permanently get rid of the vaginal itching which turns up after sex ?

I am a 29-year-old female. my majora labia has been itching for almost 3years now. Right after my husband cheated on me, I started to itch. no doctor can tell me exactly what i have. some has given me yeast infection cream,that burned me when i put that on. then i went to another doctor a couple of months ago,she gave me clobetolsol(i think thats how to spell it). that worked. But then I ran out of the cream. Then right after I ran out, my husband and i had relations and it was burning while and then itching a whole lot after. now it inflammed,spreading to my butt cheeks , I have little speckled of blisters, the lips is raw, and I m now afraid to have sex. So I went to doctor again, she prescribed the medication again for 2months. I don t want to keep on using this cream if there is something to get rid of it forever. i surely hope this take away the itching/burning feeling i have forever.

I am a teenage female experiencing vaginal itching and burning, along with a white discharge that doesn t seem to cheesy or clumpy. When I took a look at my genitals, it was slightly red. I just recently lost my virginity and then I had sex not long after that, both of which were unprotected. I have no idea what my sexual partner had and I am no longer in contact with him. I do not know what I have or how to treat it and my OBGYN is an hour away so I cant afford going back and forth. I am currently looking for a new OBGYN but the itching and burning is hard to ignore meanwhile. Do you have any idea what I could possibly have and/or any home treatments that would help?

Earlier today I had cortisone injection in my wrist for De Quervain s. An hour later my hand was still tingling and sore, and my hand and forearm was really cold, even though warm outside. Non-injected arm & hand fine. This lasted for about 2 hours. Now, my hand is a bit sore but not as cold anymore.

After receiving cortisone injections, the next day I get a facial flushing. I went for a cortisone injection today for a neuroma in my foot. I mentioned this to the doctor and he did not want to give me an injection until I check this out. I have had it happen several times in the past, and it comes on the next day lasting only 24 hours. Is there anything to worry about?
