Question: Good evening! Ok here's the situation...quite silly...but I did it. I used XXXXXXX on my genital area which did irritate it a bit, but not to the point that I didn't stop having sex. In fact, I had unprotected sex Wednesday evening...the very day I'd used the XXXXXXX Afterward, I was sore and a bit uncomfortable. I would say that the sex was rough. Today, everything was extremely swollen and itchy, including my labia minora which has bumps on it now. My vagina has been very sore and my clitoris and labia minora hurt when I walk and rub against my pants. To gain some sort of relief, today I bought Miconazole and inserted the round tablet into my vagina. I put external itch and irritation cream on the outside of my vulva, the surrounding areas of the vaginal opening, and inside my labia majora and now? It's itching like hell and still swollen. Is this more than likely an STD or a simple infection that can be treated? I must admit that I've used XXXXXXX below the belt before and the same thing happened but the symptoms weren't as bad. One side of my labia minora was swollen then and there were a couple of small bumps on the labia minora but I tested negative to all STD/STI's. You would think I would've learned my lesson but I've definitely learned it now. This is horrible! EVERYTHING is itching like crazy...even the inside of my vagina. I know I must go in to see a doctor but can you please offer me some advice in the meantime? I'm not using XXXXXXX in my genital area again and I'm not having unprotected sex again...period. Thank you.

Hi ,
Thanks for writing in.
The condition you are experience is irritant dermatitis. It has occuered due to XXXXXXX
You can apply hydrocortisone cream one percent over the affected area.Also you can take tab zyrtec two times a day for itching.
Also do not apply any soap or other home remedy over it.
You can use cold water soaks on affected area.
Also avoid XXXXXXX application in future.
Hope this helps.
It does not appear to be std or sti.
I will be available for follow up.

Every month after my periods get over, I get this strong scratchy feeling in my vagina or vulvas. Assuming it to be caused due to unhygienic problem, I have started washing myself during showers with bath soap (although alternate products for use in the private parts are available) and change pads upto three times daily on period days. In need of immediate help :\

i have been having recurrent yeast infections (3 within thte same month). i think its a yeast infection because i ve had sdimilar symptoms before, but now i m starting to get worried that it might be something else. i ve been examining my genital area and i have found some very small pimples filled with white pus around my clitoris, my vulva is red and swollen, i have a lot of discharge, but no particular bad odour assoiated to it. i just started using flagystatin, and now it started itching too. i also noticed like a few bumps below the vagina opening and around my anus . it doesnt look like a sore, but for some reason, i m really worried that i might be having herpes . should i continue using flagystatin. if i dont have a yeast infection, what can flagystatin do 4 me, can it relieve herpes or treat something else?

My husband had a circumcision (he's 42) after phimosis all his life. It's been 8 months, and his glans are still too painful and sensitive to touch. He's says it feels like a toothache. I wonder if perhaps he had a low grade yeast infection under the foreskin for years going unnoticed. I read untreated yeast can grow rhizomes, and become more in the mold category, going under the top layer of skin in a woman's vagina, and having nearly no symptoms, other than vulva pain similar to what my husband is now describing. He has tried all pain meds for it, including ones for nerve pain. Suggestions on what this might be, other possibilities.... would be great.
