Hello.
Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic forum.
Itchy vagina is mainly due to fungal infection. The only way to get a relief for some time is to have oral antifungals once a week for at least six weeks and alongwith it you must use a local antifungal lotion on that area. If you do not take adequate treatment it is notorious for recurrence.

I ve been taking amphotericin B for oral thrush for 3 days now, 10mg x2 daily. The thrush has affected my tongue and the upper back of my mouth and is slowly subsiding. I ve had a an upper respiratory infection (Dr said Bacterial Virus), which has largely died down, the coughing is absolutely minimal now and there s virtually no phlegm. I ve been breathing through my mouth a lot (been sick for 3 weeks) and have had many throat lozenges to cope with the coughing. Have been on Roxithromycin now for 3 days. I ve never been prone to thrush. Have been under a lot of stress - earthquakes in Christchurch, NZ. Ok, my question. Still feeling very tired, unwell and drained. Could this be due to the antifungal drug?

I ve got a rash in the middle of my elbow which is like a spotty circle (with loads of smaller spots around it), its similar to ringworm which I ve had before in the same area, however it sometimes twinges with pain, feeling like my skin is being pulled taut. Its not like a stabbing pain but its like being pricked with a needle and is very discomforting. I ve been applying anti-fungal creams to it for a while now but it doesn t seem to be going down. I ve also done the tumbler test so I m moderately sure that its not meningitis.

I have a persistant rash in the pubic area...clinical presentation is consistent with fungal infection, but it is unresponsive to OTC topical antifungals and one prescription antifungal. I have had no culture done. My sexual partner has had a vaginal culture done and tested positive for Klebsiella Pneumoniae. Could this also be causing my rash?

The mark on his back is still there. To complicate matters he has also got chicken pox yesterday. Could he have ringworm?
