Question: Even after I take a shower, I start itching in the vaginal and rectum areas some time later that same day and it's every single day. I don't understand why that happens. What could be causing this to happen? This happens even when I'm not having pms. It's more itchy without having pms.

This may be an infection

Hi
I am Dr Mittal
I have read yoru query
I think there is a strong possibility that you have developed some kind of an infection.
Ideally, you need to get a vaginal swab culture.
However it is difficult to get that sample yourself.

An easier way would probably getting a urine culture- bacterial and fungal.
You can then try antibiotics accordingly.

Meanwhile, for now, you can take plenty of fluids and start antibiotics of ciprofloxacin group with clindamycin. start antibiotics after giving culture samples.

Also check sugars and usg abdomen

Best of luck

I've been diagnosed with streptococcus virdan. I've taken several medications such as levaquin, cipro, bactrim, doxycline and many more. The levaquin started working but I quit taking it because I felt better and now I've been having this problem for six years due to the fact I stopped taking my medication. About a year ago, a doctor did a semen culture and I was positive for virdan. He prescribed me penicillin and of course it didn't do anything. Do you have any suggestions of what I need to do because this has been and ongoing process forever
