I m in so much pain. I thought I had a yeast infection so I went to urgent care and they gave me one pink pill to cure it. I also bought Monistat 7 to rub on the outside. I woke up REALLY swollen. Like huge. My major and minor labia is swollen red and dry.

Hello I am very concerned about my genital area i am a 27 year old and from some time now i have experienced a severe yeast infection at least thats what i thought but my clitoris has a white film over it and sores and so does my labia menor and in the arch of my labia mayor. I also found small wars on top of my vulva and a dark spot on my right labia minor. I am scared of what i have looked up i had a paps done almost 5 years ago and everything came out negative. I live in puerto rico so finding time for a gynocologist on the holidays are hard.

Hi I have been diagnosed with a yeast infection two weeks ago. I have used oral tablets and an over the counter treatment with a capsul that I inserted. My doctor also tested me for herpes (the test came back negative) but before the test results he started me on the herpes medicine because I was in pain. He also gave me meterzonal (an antibotic I probably spelled wrong) in because I had a large open sore by the opening of my vagina. Since that treatment the large sore went away as did the pain. However I returned to a different gynecologist because in the mean time a nother sore had appeared on my cliterous. It started out small and it looked like it had yeast coming out of it. When I looked the next day a blister had devolped in its place and it was taking up a larger area. it has since seemed to harden and is delicate to the touch. the second gynecologist said there was alot of discharge. I am being tested for stds, but it is unlikly becuase I have only been with one man and we had std tests recently that revealed no issues. I am worried about the sore on my cliterous especaiily is it permant? I don t know what it is.

I had safe sex (with a condom) with a now ex about 2 weeks ago, i just discovered was cheating. I noticed a small hard bump on my labia majora. It is uniform and feels like a ball under my skin, i pricked it with a pin and white pus and blood came out. I m covering it with an antibiotic cream. There is only one spot, raised, about the size of a pea and not really painful unless i squeeze it. It is in an area that i shave and would be prone to irritation. Is this an ingrown hair or something more serious?

Over the last month I have had some vaginal discomfort. I first noticed a tingling sensation on my outer labia , which eventually turned to itching. I then began noticing the skin looked red, swollen, and shiny like it was wet. However it was really dried out. And recently it started peeling in large dry flakes. I ve never had sex, but have messed around with my boyfriend. However not since this discomfort started back in late September. I ve also started noticing the my discharge has white stringy and ball looking material in it. It is however odorless and mostly white or maybe creme/yellowed hued at times. I also know I have cysts which could contribute to the discharge. But I am still bringing this up to see if it has anything to do with the dry flaking, and itching labia. Thanks for your time.
