Thank you. Ive had BV &a yeast infection twice that i know of at the same time. Could that cause the cluster of bumps as well?

Thank you. Ive had BV &a yeast infection twice that i know of at the same time. Could that cause the cluster of bumps as well?

Warts or herpes?: Neither yeast nor BV would cause a "cluster of bumps". If they are more or less permanent -- i.e. unchanged after more than a few days -- it could be genital warts. If brief and initially blister-like and then sores, herpes is more likely. See a doctor and get it checked out. Good luck! ...Read more

I put yoplait flavored yogurt on my anus to help with what i thought was a anal yeast infection, but could it possibly cause bumps in my anal canal ?

Medical evaluation: The cultures in most yogurts are dead. Kefir is a rich source of probiotics. There are also probiotic pills or special yogurts that are rich in live cultures. The good news is that taking the probiotics orally will help you -so you don't have to place yogurt internally. However, if you have bumps in your anal canal that isn't likely to be due to yeast. See your doctor for eval. ...Read more

Can herpes cause small bumps to appear ALL over the outer lips of the vagina or is this something else? Had a yeast infection 2 weeks ago.

Can herpes cause small bumps to appear ALL over the outer lips of the vagina or is this something else? Had a yeast infection 2 weeks ago.

It : It would be very unusual for herpes or vaginal yeast infection to spread throughout the body. Other medical issues, such as MRSA (methicillin resistant staph aureus), eczema, psoriasis, pityriasis, or other dermatological issues can cause a rash on the body. Trying a mild anti-bacterial soap and mild lotion may be helpful, but if it is a worsening rash, or if the patient had fever or new symptoms, then the patient should be medically evaluated. ...Read more
