Question: this is the third time this has happened. I feel like I am getting a yeast infection and of course i douched and took my prescription medicine for that. the next day i have a blister on each hand that is burning and itching, on on the inside of my left thigh and vaginal itching no discharge and now on my anus with a dark spot. no other symtoms. Each time it is in the same areas. I am 41 years old and had a hysterectomy when I was 28 only one ovary left. I have been married for 23 yrs and have not been seeing anyone other than my husband. This seems to happen when I get severly stressed or have been sick. I just got over the flu last week. I am so worried that I have an std or something. please help

Thanks for the query.

According to your description it is appearing as herpes infection.
Blister formation, burning, itching etc can be seen in herpetic infection.
When immunity decrease due to illness or due to stress and strain, herpes infection can reappear.
It can also occur by skin to skin contact.
So, you better consult gynecologist once and get examined to find out the exact cause for your problem and get treated accordingly.
Hope I have answered your query. I will be available to answer your follow up queries. If you are satisfied with all my answer, please rate the answer after closing the discussion.

The dr I went to once before said the test was negative from the fluid of the blister for herpes. Could this be shingles?
Also the sits on my hand are just red spots no blisters yet. Only had them turn into blisters once.

If the possibility of herpes is excluded, then the other possibilities are:
Shingles: It is caused by varicella -zoster virus.
Hand, foot and mouth disease: it occurs due to coxsackie and enteroviruses.
These cases can present with rash on hands. Usually the rash may turn into blisters but sometimes that may not.
Anyhow better to consult doctor once and get examined. By examination the actual causative agent can be detected.
Wish you Good Health, If you are satisfied with my response please rate the answer after closing the discussion.

I have mallorets meningitis, I have struggled with it apparently since I was about 2-3 years old due to varicella and a bad blood infection. About a month ago I had symptoms of meningitis again... Went to ER and was admitted to hospital for a week and a half for antiviral therapy via IV... The day before I was discharged the doctor in charge of my care ordered a picc line to continue IV therapy at home... After 2 additional weeks of antiviral ivs.. Picc line was removed. This was a week and a half ago.. Two days ago I awoke in the middle of the night running a low grade fever and right shoulder and right side of neck was swollen, I developed a cough and now everytime I cough it feels like someone it sticking a hot poker in my right lung and right frontal aspect of my neck, is it possible I ve developed an infection internally?

My alt and ast are slightly elevated. My hep b surface AB tests high along with all my other titers. Varicella, rubeolla, rubella. I wrk in health care and have had low back pain for about 8 months. I take 2 aleve and 2 tylenol every day and have about 3 glasses of wine a week. Otherwise I am super healthy.... My AST is 87 and my ALT is 68. I have had no exposures that I know of. Could my anti inflammatory and tylenol use contribute to these abnormal levels?

HI, I am a 36 year old adult who recently contracted the chickenpox virus. My sons had it about 2 weeks ago, and seeing that I didn't contract the virus as a child, I guess it was my turn.

The chickenpox sores or lesions are mostly on the upper part of my body. This morning I noticed that the lesions are withdrawing themselves and not crusting. (this is the 5th day since the first lesion was spotted). Should I be concerned? The doctor has prescribed adco-acyclovir 200mg. I take 1 tablet every 4 hours since the first day.

awaiting your answer...thanks

Had shingles shot a couple of years ago.
Have rash on both breasts and tested positive for Varicella Zoster Virus
about 5 weeks ago.
Rash is a lighter but never blistered.
Currently have extreme pain(feels like sunburn) in different parts of body. Sometimes shooting pain lasts for a few minutes then goes away.
About 2-3 weeks before all of the above started to happen , I changed my Hormone Replacement Therapy. I replaced Premerin with Estradiol
and still take prometrium.
I've stopped taking Valtrex hoping it's a reaction to this. Nothing seems to help.
