I'm a virgin and I have a mess of wrinkly bumps covering my perineum to my anus. I don't know if its a yeast infection because some signs are there.

You need: To go see you doctor to get these looked at. They could be a variety of things. If you have a discharge along with them it could be an infection. You didn't say whether this was new or not. However, I think the best thing to do is get it checked. Take someone with you so you won't be embarrassed, the doctor won't be, we do this all the time.

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!

Persistent yeast infection unresponsive to one time doses of fluconazole and itraconazole. Now have rash on perineum. Do I need a longer treatment?

Persistent yeast infection unresponsive to one time doses of fluconazole and itraconazole. Now have rash on perineum. Do I need a longer treatment?

Resistant yeast: Some yeast strains are resistant to all the "azole" drugs, and more prolonged treatment won't help. These infections need treatment with other drugs like nystatin, flucytosine, or other drugs. Your diagnosis needs to be confirmed by a doctor who understands resistant yeast; follow his or her advice on treatment. Good luck!

My perineum is infected due to a yeast infection it started as a very small sore & now it is like a big budge it doesn't hurt that bad but it looks bad?

May not be yeast...: A yeast infection usually looks a bit different. Usually there is generalized itching and a discharge that looks a little like cottage cheese. It doesn't usually "start as a sore" and turn into a big bulge. There may be something else going on. You may want to get an exam and find out what it is. Best wishes!

What are the signs of infection after a wisdom tooth extraction?

Swelling and pain: Increasing rather than decreasing post op discomfort coupled with swelling and tenderness in your lymph nodes are all indicative of possible infection. Often, antibiotics are given post-op to prevent this. A bad taste or odor may also be signs of possible infection. Return to the surgeon for evaluation if you have any of these symptoms.

Cuts: If your cuts are red and warm, please wash them with soap and water then apply a topical antibiotic ointment to the areas if they don't improve, you may need an oral antibiotic. Please visit your family physician for an antibiotic if the cuts don't feel better.

Any signs of infection must I look for if I have lymphedema?

Any signs of infection must I look for if I have lymphedema?

Red/swollen/pain: Redness, swelling, warmth, and pain are the cardinal symptoms of infection or inflammation. If you have lymphedema, i'd your lymphatic system is impaired and cannot clear bacteria from the tissues normally. Watch for these signs, and if they develop, see your primary provider right away for antibiotic therapy. Lymphedema treatment using massage and compression may reduce your risks. Good luck!
