Infant black tongue. Tried nystatin, then swabbed for culture and tried fluconazole, no yeast on culture. Dr said iron stain? Doesn't get supplement.

Infant black tongue. Tried nystatin, then swabbed for culture and tried fluconazole, no yeast on culture. Dr said iron stain? Doesn't get supplement.

"Thick" discharge sounds like an STD such as gonorrhea or chlamydia. Vaginal irritation and itching suggest yeast or herpes, and herpes can trigger BV. The main thing is to stop guessing, stop treating yourself with MetroGel, and see a doctor ASAP. Good luck! ...Read more
