      i had no discharge, i was very dry up until my period. also it was completely painless, i wouldnt have known anything was wrong until i checked. the redness is still there but barely, its as if my period healed it?

      the red patches gradually appeared and i was afraid they could blister as i am sexually active. i only have anxiety and ocd over these things.

      most likely yeast or bv or just vaginal dryness. yeast can cause vaginal dryness altho strange u dont have discharge. i wouldnt think it is herpes especially considering red patches didnt blister or come of anything. dont worry, so r u back to normal now or still suffering and if so what symptoms do u currently have?
