Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.

I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

I have gone through your question and understand the concerns.
You should get a vaginal swab examination done to confirm the type of yeast causing the infection. Sometimes, the yeast infection is caused by resistant candida species, and in that case , Fluconazole needs to be taken for a longer duration.

My partner (male) has Herpes 2.We been together over 3,5 years and I (female) was not diagnosed, I asked to be tested. But docs refused because I do not have ulcers in my genitals. However, I had some kind of recurrent infection that I was treated for (did not have this until this relationship). I feel burning of the skin of the labia, it is read. Now I have some red scar that looks as a red stripe under one of my armpit. I itches and has dry surface to touch. I feel as another armpit starts it too. My head hurts and I noticed some slur in my speech... What are the chances that this due to me having the virus, even if I don t have blisters on genitals? I read that if untreated it causes brain damages, etc. How can I convince my doctor to test me? I am so anxious and hope you can advice. Thank you
