I used a homemade shaving cream on my vaginal area and had an allergic reaction to it. That area is extremely sore and very painful to urinate?

Slow to recover: Ouch. Inflammation from an allergic reaction can take a number of days to subside. Oral Benadryl and topical hydrocortisone may be somewhat helpful but it may be more useful to simply soak the area (in a tub or use a sitz bath) and then void into the water, and then ice/cold packs to the area. You may need to see your doctor if symptoms remain severe and persistent. ...Read more

If: If your symptoms are still present please see your doctor for an evaluation. Often times when a woman thinks she has a yeast infection, it could actually be a bacterial infection. If your symptoms have resolved then maybe it was a yeast infection and has cleared. Lastly, the best time to resume sex is after you complete the appropriate treatment.
Take care. ...Read more

Been using clotrimazole cream for 2 wks for vaginal thrush, no symptoms now and all seems fine but its tender and red around the entrance, is it gone?

Redness: Although the cream you are using is good to treat a fungal infection it sounds like either you still have residual infection or you have a different infection going on. I would try the cream in the area that is red for a few days but if not better I would see your doctor to determine if some other condition is there. Good luck! ...Read more

Steroid Cream Abuse: Topical steroids cause vasoconstriction of blood vessels. With long term use you will get a rebound dermatitis and the blood vessels will dilate making the skin more red. Try using one of the non-steroid creams like Elidel (pimecrolimus) or Protopic both of which are prescription. Otherwise you will have to wean yourself off of the topical steroid. ...Read more

Better moisturizer: I am so sorry to hear this. It sounds like you need to work closely with your dermatologist to find a better topical regimen. In the meantime, adding a "physiologic" moisturizer - one that actually replenishes deficiencies that can occur with long time inflammation- will help. Look for ingredients that include "ceramides". Some options include cerave, cetaphil daily advance ultra hydrating. ...Read more

I have vaginal burning, along with soreness for a couple of days now. It happens whenever I use lubricated condoms. Is this an allergic reaction?

Latex allergy: Yes, you might very well be describing either a latex allergy or an allergic reaction to lubricant. See what happens when you use non-latex condom or find same brand/type but w/o lubrication. Once you find one you like, keep a box handy so that you won't have a reaction from some other brand. If you need some lubrication, there are many water-based ones available. Again, find one that you like. ...Read more
