Doctor :   hi
Doctor :  
how can i help you
User :   hello
Doctor :  
hi
User :   I have a few questions but one main one at this point.
Doctor :   ok

Doctor :  
kindly proceed with your query
User :   I just talked with my girlfriend and she indicated to me that the last few times i fingered her she was irritated afterwords..and it burned a bit..
User :   she had a yeast infection about 2 or 3 weeks ago as well ..
Doctor :  
provide your age
User :   im 24
Doctor :  
ok
Doctor :  
due to fungal infection there will be irritation and burning sensation
Doctor :  
h3ence she may be experiencing the pain
User :   no i also noticed within the last few weeks that i have small bumps, blisters on my fingers towards the tips of them..i thought it may just be eczama but im thinking it may be a fungal infection from possibly scratching me feet is that possible..
User :   *so (not no )
Doctor :   This is not a fungal infection
Doctor :  
do you have pain?
User :   no..sometimes it itches but not really any pain or redness just bumps and if i squeez them they get bigger and inflamed
Doctor :   ok

User :   i guess what im trying to figure out is this issue with my finger causing her problems or is it just her own body?
User :   she said that it only does it after i finger her..
Doctor :   yeast infection occurs due to improper hygeine

Doctor :  
and moisture in that area
Doctor :  
did you had this blisters before she got yeast infection
User :   no i didn't notice before..but i know that my dad has had the same thing and my sister has had something similar on her feet ..with small pits ..so i thought it was somthing genetic..i also have very moist sweaty hands all the time
Doctor :   as far your history it may be type pf psoriasis or allergic reactions

Doctor :  
i suggest you to get checked it by a dermatologist to confirm the diagnosis
User :   ok..but its also possible that her yeast infection caused my problem with my fingers? i did finger her when she had the infection before she got meds to clear it up..
User :   ok
Doctor :  
ok
Doctor :  
it is quite rare the fungal infection to cause this type of lesions
User :   ok..im just trying to get some reasurance of somthing to tell her because she wants me to please her but is scared that im causing her to have a reaction..so i will have her talk with her obgyn and discuss that i think..

Doctor :   yes
Doctor :  
i suggest you to get it checked once with the dermatologist
Doctor :  
and also take precautions not to finger if you have any lesions
Doctor :  
to prevent spread the infection or acuire the infection
User :   ok ..deffinatly..i don't right now..it just feels rough..nothing is raised but i also haven't fingered her in a while..and will using a latex glove make a difference ..
Doctor :  
you can use a glove
Doctor :  
for protection
Doctor :  
until the infection in her and your finger subsides
User :   ok..is there a chance that she will still get a reaction even with a glove..like from the movement and should i use lube? she is 19 and doesn't seem to have a problem getting wet
Doctor :   there is possible also since latex is allergic in nature

User :   sorry im asking so many different variations of questions..ive never really been active before her and she is my first real girlfriend..
Doctor :  
ok
Doctor :  
its ok
Doctor :  
what i suggest is that you can use the glove
Doctor :  
but can use other types of gloves are available which are non latex
Doctor :  
disposable gloves you can use this
User :  
ok well this helps me alot for now and i think it gives me some insight...
Doctor :  
you can ask for this type of gloves
User :   ok....are you a md or med student ? also where are you from..i was going to ask first
Doctor :  
I am a General Practitioner
Doctor :
