Yeast infection or worse?


Q: Ok I had pretty rough sex about a week or so ago. After the last time I got really sore. The inside of my labia minora got red itchy and started to burn. I used monostat 3 thinking it was a yeast infection and it caused the burning and itching to become insanely intense. The directions said their might be mild increases in itching and burning but this was way more then just a mild increase. My boyfriend and i were just tested for stds so it cant be that. Do I have to go to a doctor to find out if I have something more then a yeast infection?
