yeast infection or an irritation?

I have what is like little bumps on the left side of my Virgina near the inside hairline and dryness all around the outside, could this be from the pantyliners I wear?

This could be caused by a multitude of things. Like Casey said it could be caused by switching laundry soaps, body soap/body wash, etc. It could also be chaffing...are you undies cotton?? With the warm weather you could be experiencing dry skin and irritation from your undies. I would try a hydrocortizone cream and see if that helps, and definitely if it doesn't go away in a few days to call your personal physician. You can never be too safe in my eyes!!! Good luck I hope this helps!

it doesn't sound like a yeast infection, i reckon it is an irritation of some kind, have you changed washing powder? fabric softener? pantyliners? even soap might do it? there must be some kind of trigger that has caused it, if it is itchy or painful it may be worth mentioning it to your GP they might be able to prescribe something to get rid of the irritation but if you can work out what has triggered it in the first place then it is likely to return, goodluck hope this helps.
