Doctor :   Hi
Doctor :   How can I help you?
User :   Hi there!
User :   Okay. I went to my doctor a week ago for yeast infection symptoms (light burning, itching, cottage cheese discharge) and I have still been waiting for results. She told me to eat natural things that will help (garlic, etc) and the burning and itching are gone. The discharge is practically back to normal as well. One big problem vaginal opening is nearly swollen shut. Should I take Canesten 3 Ovules to treat what is most likely a yeast infection or is this something far worse? I can't get in to see this doctor until next wednesday and I need help. I'm scared that it's going to keep getting worse! Please help me!
Doctor :   The swelling can be due to inflammation.
Doctor :   I would suggest you to consider consulting a doctor for physical examination.
Doctor :   In the mean time, if you are unable to consult the doctor right away,
Doctor :   monitor for any new symptoms
User :   So should I not take the yeast infection medicine Canesten?
Doctor :   Watch out for further episodes of discharge, fever, burning sensation during urination.
User :   okay
User :   thanks
