Test for diabetes?: While i certainly don't know the specifics of your situation, I have seen patients with severe vulvovaginitis due to yeast (not bacteria) where their underlying risk was actually diabetes.

Follow up with docto: Can still be yeast. Some yeast is resistant to Diflucan. May need other treatment. Bacteria is possible. If all infectious sources ruled out, consider skin conditions which can be evaluated by dermatologist. Use mild detergents and soaps. Try topical emu oil. If none of above then consider nerve disorders or vulvodynia ...Read more

Yes: Spermacide, new dtergents, etc. Might try some Hydrocortisone cream and topical anesthetic if it's really bothering u and keel an eye out for ulcers or a yeast infection. If a contact dermatitis it is generally a broader location but whatever is occurring it it generally self limited. Good luck. ...Read more

Worried: I'm worried that you've likely contacted an std. Sounds like it could be herpes, chlamydia or gonorrhea. You should definitely go to a doctor or urgent care as soon as possible with a fever that high. They may be able to diagnose you on sight, or they made need to take some tests. Regardless, most docs will start you on some antibiotics even before the results come back, just to be safe. ...Read more
