Best treatment of vaginal ecoli?

Best treatment of vaginal ecoli?

No best solution: Ecoli bacteria comes from yourself; your own GI tract. I would begin by paying closer attention to hygenic practices, like always wiping from the font to the back when you urinate/move your bowels. I wouldn't douche but using a peri-bottle to irrigate your vulva & perianal area might help. Utilizing intravaginal preparations like luvena may be helpful in keeping the balance of good & bad bacteria. ...Read more

I've had folliculitis in the vaginal area for years now, what is the best treatment for the scarring and itch it has created?

Stop shaving?: If you have been shaving the area, stop. That may be the main problem, perhaps the only problem. If pubic area hair control remains important, consider a hair removal cream instead. If not shaving, other factors may be important -- for example, you may be carrying virulent staph or strep. If you haven't yet seen a dermatologist, consider it now. She or he should be able to sort this out. Good luck ...Read more

Eczema in the Vaginal...What is the best treatment for vaginal Eczema. ..for My Daughter (4.5 years old). she pull off her pants. Need help?

See her pediatrician: I'm not sure why you think your 4 1/2 year old daughter has eczema in her vagina (is she itching at the area?) but it would need to be evaluated by her pediatrician. There are other causes for itching such as a yeast infection (was she recently on antibiotics, for instance). Don't guess at the diagnosis - have her seen so she can be made comfortable more quickly :) ...Read more

After finishing a six night treatment of canesten vaginal tablets, I tried to have sex but I was suffering from extreme vaginal dryness.?

Vaginal irritation: After treatment for a vaginal yeast infection, the vaginal mucosa is likely still inflamed and irritated. You might interpret that as a "dry" sensation. I would wait a few more days before having intercourse. If your symptoms do not improve over 2-3 days, then go see your doctor to rule out: 1. an adverse reaction to the medication or 2. inadequate treatment--the yeast infection is still there. ...Read more

Is there any risk in having an anal sphincterectomy if I want to have more children and deliver vaginally? Fissure hasn't heal with medical treatment.

Is there any risk in having an anal sphincterectomy if I want to have more children and deliver vaginally? Fissure hasn't heal with medical treatment.

Anal fissue: Theoretically, yes. If a vaginal birth is complicated by a 4 th degree tear, then that potentially can weaken the sphincter and a concomitant sphincterotomy could aggravate that. Sphincterotomy alone and in the right hands has a minimal chance of sphincter issues and is an excellent treatment of chronic anal fissure that has failed medical mgmt. ...Read more

I took treatment 1 of a vaginally suppository for a yeast infection at 10 this morning. It in now 1am can I take the second dose before sleeping?

Take as directed: Sorry, it's probably not the answer you wanted but it's really true. Most vaginal yeast medications are dosed once nightly. Time of day doesn't matter as much as long as its about 24hrs apart. The only benefit from nightly application is less tendency for medication to drip out due to gravity while upright. But if you found medication that requires dosing twice daily, then 2nd dose 12hr after 1st. ...Read more
