Yes: First off, many women have body dysmorphic disorder when it comes to their female anatomy. Many women think they have a large vulva. Typically, they don't.

Was just diagnosed with small fiber neuropathy and i get mild numbness and mild decreased sensation on skin but never pain. Normal?

Depends: on what you mean by "normal." There's nothing "normal" about neuropathy. The pattern of numbness you describe - if it's mainly in the distal lower extremities - is typical of small-fiber neuropathy. Absence of pain is unusual.

Candida: if truly candida infection (yeast) antibiotics will not help. Antifungal will. clotrimazole, ketoconazole, ciclopirox. Please review diagnosis with your treating provider. If it is truly a candida infection, antibiotics won't help unless there is a bacterial infection present with the candida infection. In that case need antibiotic and antifungal treatment at same time. Hope this helps. Dr R ...Read more
