Vaginal burn and itch, also on vulva, irritated clitoris, some discharge, 3 blisters. 3 treatment with antibiotics in 3 months, taking oral probiotic?

Vaginal burn and itch, also on vulva, irritated clitoris, some discharge, 3 blisters. 3 treatment with antibiotics in 3 months, taking oral probiotic?

Likely infection: Vaginal symptoms and blisters despite 3 rounds of antibiotics - i suspect there is still an infection going on. Possibly yeast or BV or another bacterial infection, possible herpes. Could also be an irritation reaction to something you're applying to the area. Anyway you need another doctor exam. In the meantime, ice in a plastic bag, or doing aveeno (oatmeal) soaks can be soothing. Good luck. ...Read more

I am 19 week pregnant. My nurse recommended Monistat 3 for my vulva itching and burning. Is Ovule or internal cream safe or external cream is enough?

I am 19 week pregnant. My nurse recommended Monistat 3 for my vulva itching and burning. Is Ovule or internal cream safe or external cream is enough?

They are all safe: If you are only having itching on your vulva it would be a good idea to just put the medicine where it is itching. As your nurse suggested. If it does not improve let her know and she will probably suggest vaginal insertion of the cream or ovule that is intended to treat yeast infections ...Read more

Is it okay to take 1 prenatal vitamin, 1 Azo yeast pill, and the 3 required hair skin and nail vitamins in 1 day? And no, I'm not pregnant.

Is it okay to take 1 prenatal vitamin, 1 Azo yeast pill, and the 3 required hair skin and nail vitamins in 1 day? And no, I'm not pregnant.

Skin and nail: You may be taking more Vitamins than you need. The Prenatal Vitamin likely has everything you need. Too many Vitamins can actually cause more harm than good. You would have to read the contents of the skin and nail Vitamins and see if they overlap with the prenatal (which they likely do). Then total all of it up to see if you exceed safe levels. One Vitamin a day is usually enough ...Read more

I've been using terconazole 4% cream for 2 days. It's not working. Can i switch to Monistat 3 mid treatment?

I've been using terconazole 4% cream for 2 days. It's not working. Can i switch to Monistat 3 mid treatment?

Sure: But give the terconazole a little longer. U may still have some sx's for a day or 2 even after infection done. If not better in a few days and did not see a doc there is a chance it's not a yeast infection. It likely is though and u can certainly switch to monistat. Good luck. ...Read more

3 months baby sleeping longer at night 4-5 hours and feeding less than usual, around 3 1/2oz- 4oz, she used to take 5oz.. She breastfeeds?

3 months baby sleeping longer at night 4-5 hours and feeding less than usual,  around 3 1/2oz- 4oz, she used to take 5oz.. She breastfeeds?

May be ok: As long as a 3 month-old baby is happy, interactive, gaining weight, not fussy; and has no ill signs such as fever, vomiting, diarrhea, or rashes, then he may be normal (because babies change their eating and sleeping habits as they grow). A 3 month-old baby can sleep 6-7 hours at night. The amount he breastfeeds is usually unknown (isn't measured). The doctor can re-check his weight and length. ...Read more
