These are professionals who look at your problem, not you. All the best. Keep the area clean in the shower 1-2 times a day. Your doctor may also choose to put you on an antibiotic. ...Read more

Chlamydia &gonorrhea; got shotfor BV & 1 dose 4 pills of azithromycin.sex 6 days after treatment & got Bartholin cyst- am I still contagious/infected?

You shouldn't be having sex with these problems until all symptoms cleared up. Return to your doctor for re-evaluation and probably additional antibiotics(s). Partner also needs treatment if not yet done. Good luck! ...Read more
