Question: I have redness and small white bumps in my vaginal area. I have had a blood test for Herpes 2 and it came back negative. But I am still freaking out. I have seen three doctors and they all say it is a bacterial infection. I have tried a cream but it is not working. Is there something else?

Brief Answer:
could be mixed infection

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

I have gone through your query.
Most common infection in that particular area is bacterial and fungal or may be both (mixed). A picture of lesion will be helpful. As for now based on your history following can be considered.

You have mentioned that anti bacterial ointment is not helping you out. You should use a triple action ointment containing antibacterial like neomycin, antifungal like miconazole and steroid like clobetasol. Actual name of ointment can be confirmed by your treating doctor.

Along with it you have to maintain proper hygiene of the area. Keep the area dry. There is not anything serious about the bumps and they will disappear with treatment.

Hope i have answered your query, kindly provide your valuable feedback and rating.

Wish you good health.
Regards
Dr. G. Katiyar

Dear Sir,

My mother has been suffering from Kidney disease. She never had any problem with BP or Blood Sugar but he has been declared to have bilateral renal parenchyma disease since 2005.

She is taking a calculated diet limiting the salt content in the food to 3 gm/day. The recent blood test conducted (2 months back) has reported bad results and the details are listed below:-

Creatinine - 7.5

Hemoglobin - 8.1

Blood Sugar (Fasting) 88 mg/DL

Urea - 150

Sodium - 131

Potassium - 4.2



What should be the next step? Is kidney transplantation the only choice? When/where should it be done? Is it getting very worse or we still have some time to go for the transplantation?

Please help.

Thanks, Kunal

Hello, about 13 days ago I drank alot of alcochol and I have been dizzy with a slight headache since then. I have been to the doctor he said it is probably liver intoxication, that it will go away, that was a week ago. I did a bunch of blood tests everything seems normal accept my hep B anti hps was 93. This happened about 2 months ago as well, the doc gave me, b6 dramin (portuguese), which I took for a week and the dizzyness went away. Any clue what it could be? Is this normal because of alcohol consumption? I have drank alot in the past years, never had this happen before.
