i was fingered about a week ago and ever since then my vagina has been severly irritated... it gets randomly itchy and the hood of my clit is painful to the touch as if there was a scratch on it or something wrong with my clit itself... does anyone know what could be causing this or how i can fix it? the only thing i can think of is that we went too rough and just needs time to heal but its been a week... is there anything i can do to calm the itching/pain? any advice would be helpful thanks
IF hands weren't clean you might have an infection as well as having been irritated. Yeast is the most common culprit.

can i treat this as a yeast infection without having to see a doctor with over the counter meds?
Yeah you can treat yeast infections with over the counter medicine. However it's reccomended if you've never had a yeast infection before to see a doctor the first time. If thats not possible there are many different creams etc out there. I personally found this link very helpful: http://www.msu.edu/~eisthen/yeast/
