What should i do for pimple like bumps with yeast infection ?

Hello, I am a 27 year old female. I just went to the doctor s last week and was diagnosed with a yeast infection, bacterial vaginosis , and cervicitis. While I was getting my exam done the doctor discovered one bump that had looked like it was scratched open at the bottom V opening of my vagina. She took a sample and its in the process of getting tested for herpes . Today I noticed a pimple like bump in the inside of my labia, when I touched it it seemed itchy and tender, being the person I am I scratched it and now it looks just like the other sore that is currently residing at the bottom opening of my vagina. I ve read up on a few things but I would like to get a bit of piece of mind while I m waiting on my test results from the bump. Could the bump be related to the yeast infection, or is it definitely herpes? It doesn t sound like herpes because of the isolation of just 2 bumps. Any input would be very helpful, thanks.

Hi, after having sex about two weeks ago I got what my OBGYN says was the beginning of a yeast infection so she prescribed me Diflucan. Now after the yeast infection symptoms subsided I noticed about a week ago two small slightly painful, itchy sore-like hardened bumps, but not noticeable that they protrude out of the skin, they just rest on top of the area outside of my anus. The areas are sore, almost like if I scratched the skin. One has gone down and has left a slight discoloration of the skin of my anus, like a light pink color. I shaved my genitals on Monday night. And just last night I noticed a bump, much like a pimple which is slightly raised and has a white head around the same area outside of my anus. Could this be because one side has the symptom and the other cheek is becoming exposed to it so it moves to the other side? I wanted to know what all of these symptoms can be signs of?

I have a 22 month old son was giving him a bath and noticed at the top of his butt crack there were pimple like spots. Should I worry? I have noticed people having the same problem it was a yeast infection and they used lotrimin on it. Any advice would be great.

im not sure if i have herpes or a yeast infection i have had a dry throat for almost 5 weeks now, i often almost constantly have weak calves and sometimes my forearms also feel weak. i also get back, neck and chest (pecks) pain. at this stage i have no blisters or sores anywhere though i have had a small cluster of tiny white dots on my lips for almost this whole time. i also get an ichty anus and have mild constipation. it doesn t hurt when i urinate though my penis does sometimes randomly itch and sting. im scared and i cant find a defining factor on the internet because both have similar symptoms. i have had blood test for herpes but i know that was pointless because that was only two weeks after possible expossure.

My husband has sores very similar to herpes on his penis, testicles & groin area...he has seen an infectious disease dr. who thought it was a fungus. He has treated him w/anti-fungal cream but it is still here after 4 1/2 months. A culture of 6 scrapings have come up w/nothing...I do not feel this dr. has much concern or interest in his case??? We are frustrated & completely befuddled. He is 56 yrs old I am 50 (going through menopause-for about 3 yrs). In the past 2 yrs during sex there has been a dozen times that I have experienced very painful sensation to the clitoris during cunnilingus (feels like a razor blade cutting)? The dr. says it s not related. He says my husband s condition is not contagious even tho he doesn t know what is happening. This is the second outbreak, 1st one we thought was a herpes outbreak, that was last fall. But now this second is 4 months going strong? The outbreak looks mimics herpes in sores turning pustular then breaking open, very painful then healing over & the skin sloughing off...but it s ongoing! Please any information is greatly appreciated.

Dear Dr. Srinivasan

Name - Nitin

Age - 36

I have had recurring problem of red spots (isloated) on my penis head for 3-4 years. I have consulted many docs with varied diagnosis.

I was single then and made to believe it was fungal, it comes on its own and have been getting treated accordingly by a dermatologist.

Recently i got married and again recurringly had red infection on my penis. Along with this, my wife also developed infecion and was put under Gynea treatment, again for fungal infection and Fas Kit prescribed to both along with aplication of fungal infection creams. For the reason not transfering infection bw me and wife, we have stopped having intercourse (unprotected) however my wife was ok but I kept developing these red spots/ infection.

However on repeated occurances we consulted a different dermatologist and he suggested Herpes but blood test reports ruled out. However he insisted that indeed it is Herpes and sometimes the medical reports do not show the same. I was put on Famtrax 250 for 1 week along with application of topical anti-biotic(fusidic acid cream). The red spots kept going and coming but doc clamed it is Herpes geting cured and that takes time to cure as in past i have been exposed to steriod in form of anti-fungal creams. Post a week of Famtrax, i was put on antialergic and anti-biotic cream for a week.

the red spots have gone but now there is recurring white spots (small pimple types) which come and go. On showing to doc, he said its miliaria of penis and common and due to non drying of the area. I was asked to take urine test (culture and routine) and culture cam normal. Routine test pointed to some epidrmal cells (UT infection, I have mild recurring burning sensationtoo) and doc asked me to take Disodium Hydrogen Citrate (Alkasol) for a week. I am currently on Alkasol and Antialergic.

But the white spots are coming and going everyday still. I am not sure if im cured yet but doc says im fully cured but the white spots can be ignored and i can have unprotected sex with my wife.

Problem is i want to start a family soon but am confused due to various diagnosis. I do not want to pass on to my wife and abstain from sex.

Please suggest cure for white spots.

i wll be very greatful.

Kind regards
