It could be an STD or a simple infection, but the only way to know is to go to the doctor. Those symptoms are symptoms of a few different things. You should not diagnose and medicate yourself. Over the counter yeast infection medicine is easy to get, so it is tempting to use, but you are not supposed to use it unless a doctor has diagnosed you with a yeast infection. It says that on the box as well. So if you really want to know what is going on, you will have to ask a doctor.
