Hi,Shimala,
From your history it conclude that you are having trichonomus infection in vagina,and you have taken treatment very rightly,but as it does not give much relief there may be other possibility of bacterial infection.
You go for urine check up and vaginal swab test for having which type of pathogen.
Then you go for treatment.
Ok and bye.

I am on my 3rd day of Keflex for a vaginal bacteria infection. I was given one Diflucan to take the night before I started the Keflex. But now into the 3rd day I feel like I am burning in my vagina and I have what feels like a lump in my skin right near the vaginal opening. I would like to know if I should still continue with the Keflex, and what to do about the lump.

I went to the beach a few days ago and stayed in my wet bikini for a few hours afterwards. 2-3 days ago I noticed an irritating itch all over the outside of my vagina. Of course I scratched at it at first, but then I stopped after it began to burn. I ve checked things out in a mirror and I m extremely red down there and a little swollen. I have red patches and I m not sure if they re from scratching or rubbing or if it s something else. I have smooth white discharge which is normal around this time, given my period is due next week. What could be going on with me?

I have intercourse with my partner about 4 days ago. After I experienced some pain a little soreness and burning. The next day it began to itch...A LOT. It still itches 3 days later and it doesn t seem to be getting less itchy and it s on the outside of my vagina around my clitoris and the opening. I read many articles about tears but very few said itching was normal. Im not sure if this is a tear that will heal in its own. (my partner was bigger than my past partner) but I can t see myself if there are any tears. If this is the case how long does it usually take for the itchiness to go away? If this isn t a tear what else do you think it could be and should i see my gyno?
