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.

My 21 year old boyfriend was treated for chlamydia and gonorrhea about 2 days ago and still complains of stinging and itching after urination and I'm having an unusual amount of white discharge lately, no smell. What could be wrong? Could it be something other than chlamydia? Could it be warts or herpes?

Am querying current line of thinking by several consultants. Admitted to hospital May 2011; lumbar puncture showed elevated CSF protein of 1088 mg/L with 228 white cells, 95% lymphocytes. The working diagnosis was viral meningitis, and I was discharged after 2 days aciclovir. Negative for herpes simplex virus 1 and 2. Developed infection in leg early October 2011, followed by painful groin, then ulcers either side of scrotum - non painful, and diagnosed as shingles. Mid October 2011, following tinitus, buzzing , hearing different frequencies, then vertigo, admitted for 2 weeks in ID ward...CSF showed 614 white cells with 90% lymphocytosis. CSF protein raised at 1335 mg/L. Tested for everything under the sun, incl. HIV, syphillis, Lyme disease, Cat scratch fever (leg infection thought to have been through an insect bite). All negative, incl. ANA. Chest x-ray, MRI scan of brain and whole spine also negative. Admitted again 26th December 2011, aciclovir for seven days, now back home feeling well, if a little tired. Current thought is Mollarets meningitis, but more recently, rheumatology dept. thinking Behcets syndrome, as I suffer from mouth ulcers. My contention is this; I have sufferd from mouth ulcers since a teenager taking exams at school. If I have a job interview, I will get mouth ulcers after @ 48 hours. Dentist thinks stress induced, as do I. I have no aching joints and no eye irritation, also, just found out that HLAB51 negative. I am a 42 year old British male and caucasian. I can t help feeling there s a square peg being pushed into a round hole here. What about migraine; the tinitus, buzzing and vertigo? Also, I took a non-steroidal (Ibuprofen) prior to the first two episodes. Bickerstaff s encephalitis sounds just as plausible as Behcets...or am I in denial? I would appreciate any advice, even if it s to simply face the music . Thank you for your time.

My husband has genital herpes and was recently diagnosed with colon cancer. He received 1 treatment of chemotherapy and has run a fever everyday for about 2 weeks. About five days after his treatment he noticed discomfort of the scrotum. It was red on both sides and had areas of what appeared to be pus filled lesions. Could this be a side effect of the chemo or is this an outbreak. He is taking valtrex and applying a cream. It seems to be improving slowly. Should he tell his oncologist about the herpes. Will it effect his treatments and does chemotherapy increase the severity of outbreaks.
