Persisting "yeast": Was the yeast diagnosis certain? How severe was it? Initial genital herpes can cause yeast-like symptoms and could also cause a new painful genital area red bump 3 weeks later. Check it out with your doctor, especially if your apparent yeast infection had open sores, tender swelling in the groin, or headache or fever.

My bellybutton itchy, wet, smell and very little pain. Was about to clean w/ a small betadine on qtip then neosporin antibiotic. Is that ok?

Yes: That's not unusual if you have not cleaned it for awhile. What you did was fine but soap and water or a little rubbing alcohol would likely have done the trick. Try to clean the area out once a week. If the antibiotic did not help, consider an anti-fungal cream.

I had my appendix removed 1 year ago, in the past 2 months my bellybutton has been itchy red an oozing a fowl smelling puss.I also have abdominal pain?

See a doctor: Did you have laparoscopic surgery with an incision near the umbilicus? N\you need to see a doctor to see if you have some type of skin infection that needs to be treated with oral antibiotics. Since you are one year after appendectomy, it would seem highly unlikely that a problem would occur at the umbilicus now due to the prior surgery.

I have a hard itchy bite on the back of my shoulder. It is in a rectangular shape is can be painful. What bit me?

Who knows?: I am not aware that any type of insect or flying species that sting have a peculiar shape to their sting. The more important point is how do you feel and what does the wound look like? is it small and red or has it enlarged and infected? If it has enlarged and begin to widen see your doc for the best treatment.
