Yeast infection?

So, after 25 years I have finally started to become sexually active. I figured with this would come with unpleasantries likes UTI's and YIs. However, not actually having one before I wanted to touch base and see what I may have and what I could do about it.

So yesterday I had an ungodly itch near my clit. I rubbed it a good one and then left it alone for the rest of the day. I noticed that the tingle of wanting to get scratched never actually went away. So last night I took some peroxide and water and dabbed my hood area with a cotton ball, then went to bed. This morning my clit feels fine, however now it's more of the inner walls, though it doesn't feel like my opening itches too much. There is really just a slightly burning sensational, totally bearable but still not something I want to have to have continuously!

As far as the sex part goes, I've been really good about keeping my area clean. Always using chlorine free baby wipes after a session until I feel the area is clean enough. Would you guys give me any other pointers about the general keep up down there?
Does this sound like a yeast infection? Would the garlic method be the wise choice for something like this? I don't really want to get any creams involved unless it's utterly dire.

PS: Hi! *waves* I'm new. :P

Edited: So I found the FAQ page for YI, it seems like the use of antibiotics may actually be the cause of my YI. I recently got a prescription for a skin rash and have been taking it 3 times a day (the needed amount). Since I have otherwise never had one I assume I've been on a pretty good track at staying away from the things that create the problem in the first place.
Thanks to those who commented.
