Herpes and Genital Warts Answer A11275
Hi and welcome to the forum! I am glad that I can help you.

You want to know the cause of the symptoms that you experience.

Itching in the genital area combined with itching inside the vagina indicates a vaginal infection, usually a yeast infection. Yeast infections may appear everywhere, especially in the genital system, when strong antibiotics with wide spectrums are used in extended treatment of infections in other body systems such as UTIs, pneumonia, bronchitis, etc. There are glands near the entrance of the vagina that produce mucus to prevent the vaginal lining from drying. Their canals can be blocked by cell debris, which cause the mucus to collect and distend the canal, which is a perfect area for inflammation and infection to develope.

Given the data that you described it is likely that you experienced a cyst due to blockage of the vaginal glands' canals. If the same condition appears again you may consider seeing a gynecologist to have the cyst removed. You may need to take a short course of antibiotic treatment to heal the infection then.

Please keep in mind that I provide medical information only. I am not able to diagnose medical conditions online. Please contact your doctor or other healthcare provider such as a gynecologist for further advice and information about diagnosis and treatment options.
