Thanks for your query.

Based on what you have described it appears that you may have genital mucocutaneous candidiasis. As this is more common amongst the persons with diabetes mellitus, please get your blood sugar levels done on empty stomach and 2 hours after lunch done to rule out the same.

Topical antifungal gels like Mecanazole can be applied over glans and beneath the foreskin after cleaning thoroughly. In addition I suggest you to consult a doctor nearby for careful examination. He/she can prescribe oral antifungal agents like fluconazole for better infection control.

Many a time focal fungal infection of the genitalia are associated with urinary tract infection. The burning sensation while passing urine is suggestive of the same. You could get your routine Urine test done when you visit your doctor's office. In the interim drink plenty of fluids and take cranberry juice twice a day.

I hope this answers your query. Please feel free to ask if you have any more questions, I shall be pleased to answer.

Last month it hurt when I peed, it wasn't a burning feeling, it just hurt when the pee would come out, it came to the point where I was scared to use the washroom because it hurt a lot even to wipe, then I had saw I had gotten a yeast infection, so I took care of and everything stopped, now yesterday I went to pee and I can feel it starting to hurt again, I was told this could be a urinary tract infection but I'm not sure what to do

I was diagnosed with HSV-1 in my genital area and since I was diagnosed I have had issues with constipation. Also, the lips of my vagina are pretty red as well and my groin area seems to be red as well. Doctor thought it may be a yeast infection. I have tried stool softeners and ansoul suppositories because of the constipation and hemmrhoids. I also tried nystatin for on the lips of my vagina too.
I'm still having some discomfort around the anus area and havent had a regular bowel movement for some time.

Im also taking daily treatment for the HSV-1. 400 mg of Acyclovir 1 time a day.
Someone, please help me feel back to "normal"
