Question: I have had a bad yeast infection that was treated with prescription medication, and for the most part seemed to go away. However I have noticed a sore/bump on the inside of my vaginal lip and am not sure if it is residual irritation from the yeast infection as it was a severe one, or something else?

Dear Ms

As diagnosis depends on good visual examination, it would be helpful if you could get back to me with the clinical photograph for further assessment.

Awaiting your response

I can't get a good picture of it, but it is very sore & it is a very small red bump; not raised but rather flat.

Brief Answer:
Likely to be folliculitis

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Dear Ms

From the short description given its likely to be due to folliculitis which is inflammation of hair follicle.

I would suggest you the following
1. Hot Seitz bath : To a tub of lukewarm water add handful of common table salt. Sit in it for 15 to 20 minutes each session twice a day.

2. Local application of antibiotic ointment like Mupirocin will be helpful

Do keep me updated

Take care

Does it not sound like a genital wart outbreak. I have one before but the shape of this one is completely different. The one I had before caused me no irritation; however this one is very sore. Slightly raised,flat, small red bump. I looked at pictures of genital warts online and they all look so different...some were fairly similar but not as small as mine.

use of mupirocin ointment nasally
I am having I spinal fusion in the morning and was instructed to use mupirocin nasally prior to arrival. the mupirocin I received from the pharmacy is 2% ointment when I read the internal literature it said not to use in the nose but that there are nasal forms of the medicine. I think I tecieved the wrong stuff from the pharmacy that being said. should I still use it or wait and see what the doctor would like to do in the morning?

Can anything be done to get rid of crusty spots in my nostrils ? They are not sore and do not bleed, but they won't go away. My ENT doctor gave me Mupirocin ointment,, and I used it nightly for weeks on end finally giving up as it did nothing. My complaint with him was that had lost my sense of smell a couple of years ago. I cannot smell good or bad odors. After I had a nasal X-ray, he told me that my sinus passages were clear, and no infection. I have used over many years a OTC Nasal spray, and wondered if that has damaged my sense of smell ? I I live alone and have to triple check myself to make sure the gas jets on my stove are off. The Dr. said it would come back, but it is now 6 months later and still not a thing !Sue Cadman

I have a painful belly button. There is also a brownish discharge that takes about three hours to refill the cavity after cleaning it out. The discharge is extremely smelly and resembles a fecal odor. I also experience pain when the area around the belly button is palpated, primarily directly below. Two sores are now apparent in the cavity but were not there a week ago when the symptoms first appeared. The amount of discharge has been constant regardless of the presence of the sores. I do not have a fever. I've seen two doctors about this condition. One prescribed a topical cream called Mupirocin Ointment. The next prescribed an antibiotic pill called Sulfamethoxazole. Both have been ineffective at relieving any of the symptoms.
