I have severe prostatitis and anal itching, a urethral swab has revealed thrush (candida). Could this be the cause of my symptoms?

I have severe prostatitis and anal itching, a urethral swab has revealed thrush (candida). Could this be the cause of my symptoms?

No: If you culture there you will grow a variety of organisms, including yeast. Assuming you are taking antibiotic for prostatitis. you will have increased candida. You may need treatment for this. Candida does not cause severe prostatitis. It may be responsible for some itch. Anal itch is usually due to fecal soiling. Avoid scrubbing. After a BM, first clean with paper, then clean with lotion INSIDE

I have a candida infection between my buttocks. Trying prescrip cream. I also have itching all over my body with no rash. Could this also be due to candida or something else?

I have a candida infection between my buttocks. Trying prescrip cream. I also have itching all over my body with no rash. Could this also be due to candida or something else?

See PCP.: I see you are using Imuran (azathioprine) for crohn's disease which can cause unexplained itching. Candidiasis is usually a superinfection caused by lowered immune system. You need to go back to your pcp for a possible systemic antifungal and perhaps a script for the itching.

Can parapsilosis candida in intestine lead to itch all over body after every single food? How about h pylori in stomach? Whcih one is more likely to lead to itching all over the body?

Neither: C. Parapsilosis cause inhospital blood infections-potentially fatal. H pylori lives in stomach, can cause ulcers, inflammation, can be prerequisite for stomach cancers. Rarely associated with some lymphomas. Itching is a very nonspecific symptom-lots of causes. Itching can be a symptom of lymphoma, among others. See your doc.

Can low iron cause itching skin, can not find any environmental causes. Was on a period for almost 4 months, itches started after that stopped.

Yes: Low iron has been reported to be a cause of itchy skin and even hair loss. If you have had a period for 4 months, it is a highly likely problem. Hope you have been followed by your GYN doctor re. The period as well since it is by no means normal. At the minimum, get a CBC to check for anemia..

Vaginal opening always itches one day after sex, and goes off after about a week. No yeast infection or BV, what is the cause?

Vaginal opening always itches one day after sex, and goes off after about a week. No yeast infection or BV, what is the cause?

Simple irritation: Irritation from something chemical or physical. If condoms or lubricants are used, it could be an irritant response to that or perhaps if your partner uses fragranced soaps or other products on the genital area that could provoke what you're describing. Simple stretching/trauma from the act of sex could be the cause, but that would tend to improve with repeated encounters so seems less likely.

How can I avoid itching the weeping wound: (im on clox for staph and candida, how do stop the weeping?

Weeping wound: You need a proper bandage to adsorb the weeping from the wounds. While you find a wound center or a clinician familiar with wounds, put a simple bandage or dressing on the wound. There may be something else to help the weeping, like compression if the wound is on the leg, that could help but this needs to be determined in person.

Vaginosis: Bacterial vaginosis is another cause. clindamycin or metronidazole vaginal application for 5-7 days at night might work. Also your doctor might suggest a vaginal douche if treatment for bacterial vaginosis is unsucessful. Oral medication is also an option. Your doctor may already have tested for this, so discuss the options with your doctor
