Yeast Infection Answer A62443
Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
It can be or it cannot be.Yeast infection usually have a discharge.Do you have it? No? Then the chance is less.Strong detergents, lotions, vaginal sprays, bubble baths often contain irritants and allergens that can cause a burning sensation shortly after application.
Menopause causes thinning and shrinking of the vaginal tissue, and loss of the lubrication necessary for painless intercourse. However,a clinical examination is needed to rule out the basic cause of your burning.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
