Only ever had 2 symptoms, 1 month apart

(Sorry my last post messed up.) 1 month ago around May 1st I had a lot of itching & discharge, assuming it was a yeast infection I bought a 3 day Canesten pack then it went away after about 5 days then yesterday the itching started again not that bad but very annoying & the discharge is staring but again when I look at one of the sports that's itchy on my major labia higher up it looks like very little holes like poor's, could it be another yeast infection or herpes? Why did it come back after 1 month & im on birth control could that be causing the itching??

Go get the are swabbed and tested for hsv. Hsv can present like this. So can a yeast infection. See a dr or your gynecologist asap. Timing is very important so don't delay

But last night I put the Canesten cream on it and  it stopped the itching

Hsv can present as cuts or holes like you describe. I don't believe hsv is the cause but it's better to play it safe
