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 it's 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.

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! ...Read more

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?

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! ...Read more

I had intercourse a week ago and had no signs of infection, but my male partner now has a infection. Could it be from me?

Symptoms after sex: You may never know that answer. The bottom line is that if a recent partner has a documented sexually transmitted infection, then you should go get checked. It's possible your partner got the infection from someone else and gave it to you. You don't want to pass it on unknowingly. Not all infections are obvious. Protect yourself by using condoms with every new partner. ...Read more

Is a discharge with a strong bad odor 10 days after having a baby a sign of infection? What could it mean? Do I need to be evaluated?

Various reasons: Vaginal discharge requires an examination to determine the cause and treatment. Bacterial vaginosis is the most common cause and often has a vaginal odor.

I am noticing dry semen stains in my partners underwear, it's only happening approx once a week. Is this normal or could it be a sign of infection?

I am noticing dry semen stains in my partners underwear, it's only happening approx once a week. Is this normal or could it be a sign of infection?

Not semen. STD?: Semen doesn't leak in that way, leaving stains, unless he masturbates and ejaculates into his underwear. Sounds like urethral discharge. That's usually a sign of STD. However, STD discharge is unlikely to occur once a week, and STD chance depends on your and his sexual risks (other partners?). Your partner should see a doctor; if any STD risks, you both should be tested. Good luck! ...Read more

I had unprotected sex with my new boyfriend. That was over two months ago. I'm scared to get tested. I haven't shown primary signs of infection, help.

Unprotected: I always tell women they should avoid unprotected sex with new partners until they've been with them at least a year. 80% of relationships end nowadays within a year most because of cheating. Be smart and be proactive and see your physician for not only testing, but some birth control. Many women regret early unprotected sex that leads to pregnancy and/or infection. ...Read more
