Hi
Welcome to HealthcareMagic.

You must have caught an Urinary Tract infection or a Genital infection.I advise you to visit your Gynecologist and get examined for the evaluation of same.A course of antibiotics or antifungal application along with excessing hydration can treat the infection efficiently.Meanwhile , please keep taking plenty of water.That will help in quick elimination of infection.

Take care.

Hi. Well just over a week ago i had my period. And i noticed that it smelt a little more than usual, doesn t normally really smell at all.. Anyway, since i ve finished my period, my vagina has had a different smell to it. It is not very pleasant and it never used to smell... What could be the cause of this? I have been drinking more alcohol than usual if that means anything but other than that my diet hasn t really changed. Could it be something to do with my new sexual partner? Could his penis make me smell this way?

Hi.My right labia will sometimes feel itchy and become a bit swollen (even if I don t scratch it). It comes and goes and only occurs on my right labia. What could be a reason for this? I know its not yeast because I got tested for it. I read about bartholin cyst..could this be it? I hope it is not a cancer.. Thank you.

My husband had a circumcision (he's 42) after phimosis all his life. It's been 8 months, and his glans are still too painful and sensitive to touch. He's says it feels like a toothache. I wonder if perhaps he had a low grade yeast infection under the foreskin for years going unnoticed. I read untreated yeast can grow rhizomes, and become more in the mold category, going under the top layer of skin in a woman's vagina, and having nearly no symptoms, other than vulva pain similar to what my husband is now describing. He has tried all pain meds for it, including ones for nerve pain. Suggestions on what this might be, other possibilities.... would be great.

I was recently on a round of amoxocillin for a tonsillitis infection, when I also had a yeast infection present at the time of my visit. I was also prescribed diflucan, and took two during the course of the antibiotics (10 days) to clear the infection, and have been eating lots of yogurt and kefir everyday since. I ordered a swab test at the first visit which came back negative for candida, much to my confusion. However, after the two diflucan symptoms subsided. 3 weeks later the tonsillitis returned, along with a UTI. I was prescribed another round of amoxicillin, and I have been 5 days, or halfway through, my second round. About three days ago, two days in to the second round of antibiotics, I developed yet another yeast infection.. or so I thought. I have taken two diflucan, still taking kefir and yogurt, to no avail. I had noticed that the discharge had no yeasty odor, which is usually very obvious to me, yet the symptoms all pointed to the worst yeast infection I ve ever experienced. Tonight I tried a clotrimazole suppository from an OTC 7-day treatment pack, along with acidophilus supplements, and within an hour was experiencing an even more painful and itchy, almost burning reaction. Upon inspection, I noticed very severe swelling of the inner labia, and even a tiny bit of bleeding from the now completely raw, sore and swollen inner labia. It seems to be a reaction to the clotrimazole, which I plan to discontinue. I am curious about the possibility of a lactobacilli overgrowth, or cytotolytic infection, as a result of my overzealous consumption of probiotic foods. Even moreso, I am interested in finding a way to put this problem to rest! Any suggestions are welcome and appreciated.
