Brief Answer:
Please get a physical examination.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

Thanks for posting your query.

Your symptoms are related to the intercourse you had. You should see a specialist for a physical examination, swabs to test the vagina and the cervix. You also need urinalysis.

After the reports are done, further management can be planned. Meanwhile use mild antiseptic solutions to clean the genital area. Avoid tight underwear and use cotton undergarments.

Your sexual partner also has to be tested and treated if needed.

Hope your query has been clarified. Please feel free to contact for further information. I will be happy to help.

Brief Answer:
Can continue Betadine wash.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

Thanks for writing again.

You are taking symptomatic treatment with suppression of irritation by using Loratidine. This can be continued. Betadine wash also can be taken. If you prefer this to dettol or savlon, you can continue with this alone. Clotrimazole powder may not be of much help in your situation. Please go ahead with a clinical exam to plan further management.

Hope this helps.

regards,
Shanti.V.

I have already submitted my question to you. Red rash sounds like my symptoms, though it is not Red unless rubbed, aggravated. Clear bumps that get larger, very itchy. I try not to scratch or rub, but the itching is intolerable.
