    Itching & Small Lesions

    misschristina posted:
    A few days ago I noticed an itching around my labia.
    It has become worse and now there are small abrasions on the skin.
    I do not know if it is from itching or if it could be a sign of an std.

    I had vaginal discharge about 2 weeks ago- which I treated as a yeast infection and took Fluconazole. The discharge has stopped.

    I am living abroad, in a country where I do not easily have access to an OB/GYN or even for an STD test.
    I do not have any other symptoms.

    Thoughts?

    Have you engaged in unprotected intercourse where an STD might be a possibility?

    Been scratching at these itchy spots?

    Yes, I have been scratching.
    I don't know if the lesions are caused from a possible scratch from my nail.
    I have had unprotected sex, about 3 weeks ago.

    If you believe you may have been exposed from the unprotected sex, then the next step would be STD testing.
