I had yeast infection.Took monistat. It went away but my perineum is stil itchy and blistered is this normal?My anus is a little itchy too.What to do?

Allergy? Herpes?: A blstering rash in this part of the body always raises the possibility of genital herpes, and herpes sometimes is initially misdiagnosed as yeast. Or just severe yeast that needs more or different treatment. Or maybe you an allergic reaction to the monistat cream. Don't take chances: see your doctor for professional evaluation. Good luck! ...Read more

I have a recurrent, painful swelling at the opening of my vagina, but I don't think it is a yeast infection. What could this be?

Cyst: Swelling at the opening of the vagina can be a bartholin gland cyst. When the duct becomes blocked, fluid accumulates. They can frequently become infected and cause an abscess with tenderness. Treatment usually involves opening the cyst to allow drainage and can be performed in the office with local anesthetic. Consult your physician for further evaluation. ...Read more

My hemorrhoid is bleeding, can it become infected?

My hemorrhoid is bleeding, can it become infected?

No: The excellent circulation to the rectum and the resulting delivery of infection fighting blood cells make hemorrhoid infections pretty rare. The itching and redness at the rectal opening is often complicated by yeast (monilial) colonization from the bowel. I've found the use of an antifungal (eg Clotrimazole which is over the counter) and some cortisone cream very helpful to get rid of the itch. ...Read more

I'm 22y/o, virgin. Is it normal for labia surface to looks like cauliflower if i had yeast infection? Is it the skin reaction due to the infection?

I'm 22y/o, virgin. Is it normal for labia surface to looks like cauliflower if i had yeast infection? Is it the skin reaction due to the infection?

Probably not: The labial surface is normally smooth; any lesion, particularly one that resembles a cauliflower (and could be an hpv lesion or genital wart) needs further investigation. By virgin, i assume you mean no vaginal penetration. Hpv can be transmitted by oral/vaginal or even hand-finger/vaginal contact. Even condoms can't give full protection against hpv. Please get a check up! ...Read more

Possible: If there is not ongoing drainage from the incision site, then it is possible. If drainage continues, may be from that. Either way, hard to check on your own (!) so better to call dr & get sooner re-check due to concerning symptoms. ...Read more

My 10 month old has what was said to be a yeast infection, but it is primarily on the labia and severly itchy and not better after 2 weeks of medicated butt paste for yeast infections could this be staph or eczema?

Rash: Diaper rash is very common and medicated powder might not be strong enough to tackle it. A prescription medication (nystatin cream/ointment) may be used instead with better relief. If there is a lot of inflammation, steroid preparations for the first 1-3 days may need to be used to reduce it, but no more than that. Staph is less likely and would present with honey colored rash. ...Read more
