Last Thursday I noticed a small raw spot on myposterior

Patient

Q: Last Thursday I noticed a small raw spot on myposterior fourchette. When I looked at it in the mirror it looked like a small cut. Not very deep. It itched more than it burned. After some yeast cream it seemed to heal never crust just healed. Never made an ulcer. It was healed by monday. Now my bottom seems to be raw. Chaffing I guess you could say but it doesn't seem to heal. Of course reading on the Internet scares me to death. Could this be herpes or have I just put it in my head and making myself believe I have symptoms? I have had the little cut before in the same spot. It seems to get irritated when I have had bouts of yeast and bv. Which I have had both from taking antibiotics a few weeks ago. It seems that the discharge burns the area. My partner of over a year doesn't have any symptoms and we have had sex when I had this cut before. I have never had a cut or blister anywhere else other than anal fissures after my daughter almost 3 yrs ago which seem to come and go at times.

Symptoms:  Vaginal discharge, raw area
