Ok so I have no clue what this could be... In the last two days obe been noticing a kinda irritating feeling in and on the outside of my vagina.. I look at the inside of it and its kindof pale/ whiteish and the little dangly things on the outside look red... What the heck is going on? I have recently in the past 3 days used a douche liquid applicator, is that what it could be? It's itchy/ painfully irritating :'(
Im really freaked out, somebody who knows, please help me :(?

You could be having a reaction to whatever was in the douche. Or you could have an infection. There are several different kinds. If you have an infection you will need to see a dr, for treatment. What kind of douche was it? I once had a reaction to a betadine douche, and it felt the same way. Something like vagacaine would give relief of symptoms on the outside until you can see a dr. I would call as soon as they are in the office. I know you are feeling miserable and you need treatment.
You should NEVER ever douche unless a Dr advises you to. Douching washes away all you vaginas natural defenses and allows infections to grow. Your vagina has a natural "good" bacterial flora meaning there are "good" bacterias that keep "bad" bacteria dn fungi from overgrowth. When you douche, you wash away and upset this balance and the result is the overgrowth of "bad" bacterias and fungi that cause unpleasant infection type symptoms. Good bacterial flora like a neutral to alkaline pH and most douches are very acidic. One of the most common is made from acetic acid, otherwise known as vinegar. Therefore only if a Dr has examined you and told you that a douche would be effective, should you douche. The vagina will cleanse itself naturally, you dont need to douche to be healthy and douching almost always will compound any problems you may be having by destroying all of the vaginas natural defenses.
It sounds like your inner labia (I assume that is what you mean by "the dangly things on the outside") are irritated. You may have a bacterial infection or you may have a fungal infection. You will need to see a Dr to determine which. You may just have irritation from the acidity of the douche or like KM said, you might have had an allergic reaction. Anyway, try not to treat yourself-see a gynecologist asap. You can try some otc soothing agents until you see the doc.
O.k. try to calm down. You don't have a disease! It sounds like you have a yeast infection. When you fool around with your vagina balance it can cause an infection. I just had one myself last week. I was all red and swollen and had a cottage cheese discharge myself. Go to the drugstore and get yourself a Diflucan capsule. (oral) and also some canesten cream for the outside for relief. You can if you want to get Canesten 3 or 7 treatment instead of the Diflucan if you want. The best is to see the doctor to see if it is a yeast infection and go from there. I do think it is a yeast infection. Let us know how you made out o.k.?
go to your doctor asap!! It's probably nothing really serious, but it sounds like either an infection or maybe a reaction to the douche that you used. Either way you need to be checked out to make sure that you don't have an STD, I'm not trying to be rude or say anything to offend you so please don't take that the wrong way. But it could be any number of things. I hope you feel better soon and find out what is going on. good luck :)
