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. Because it's easy to test (blood test), you might want to see if this has been done. Good luck; sounds miserable. Lgromkomd. ...Read more

Had itching and burning in vulva & vagina. Took diflucan (fluconazole) 3 times. Tests for STDs and other cultures negative. No itching but still have burning. ?????

Follow up with docto: Can still be yeast. Some yeast is resistant to Diflucan (fluconazole). 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

Had UTI, took Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) and 1 diflucan pill to take after. 2 weeks later have a lot of burning in vulva and itchiness. Is this a yeast infection?

UTI treatment: Frequently Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) will successfully treat the bug causing your UTI. But sometimes not. I would get a mid-stream collection of your urine at the lab and send it for a culture and sensitivity. That test will what antibiotics will kill the bug. Your doc can check to see if you have a yeast infection. I counsel women to eat yogurt with live cultures when I prescribe an antibiotic. ...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

Can't say.: The color of vaginal blood is of no clinical significance. Brown blood is older blood being expelled from the uterus. Red blood can be fresher blood. Sore red, vulva could be related to yeast infection, friction, dryness. Don't know how infrequent your periods actually are. There isn't a way to say with the available information. Consider medical eval. Take care. ...Read more
