Is Vaginal Itching Symptomatic Of An STD?
Kindly upload images and provide more information
Hello. thank you for writing to us.
I am Dr. Kakkar (Dermatologist). I have gone through your query and have noted your concern.
Perhaps you have developed a fungal infection.
I request you to kindly upload a few images of the affected skin in "Reports Section" so that I am able to guide you better.
Are there any visible red patches/ rings shaped lesions?
Is there any abnormal vaginal discharge?any visible sores?
Are you sexually active? and does your partner complain of any itching?
Have attached images for better diagnosis. I am sexually active. My partner doesnt complaint of any itching but was diagnosed with warts near finger nails for which he had just finished the treatment. r
You seem to have a yeast infection i.e candidal vulvovaginitis.
I suggest an oral antifungal e.g tab. fluconazole once a day for 3 days. In addition to that you may insert clotrimazole vaginal pessary every night for a week.
You may take an oral antihistamine e g tab. cetrizine once a day for symptomatic relief from itching.
Continue with vaginal expert wash. Avoid oil and camphor. Avoid sexual contact for a week.
These medications are fine. Avoid sexual contact for a week. No other special pecautions.
Let me know if you have any more questions.
The discharge almost still the same after taking all the three dosages of fluconazole 150 m with little improvement though. Would u suggest continuing the medicine or anything els that you would recommend?e
I would also like to cover for 'bacterial vaginosis' that is due to alteration of bacterial vaginal flora in sexualy active females and is the most common cause of vaginitis apart from candida. Therefore i suggest adding a Tab. Metronidazole 400mg, 3 times a day for 5 days
