Like a month ago I got a yeast infection and I noticed bumps on my buttocks developing. Could the bumps be caused by the yeast infection?

Yes: Yeast infection is usually from excessive moisture and can present with satellite lesions that look like pustules (white heads). You may also have folliculitis which can be bacterial (common with friction, moisture, sitting too long, shaving, etc). If your doctor gave you diflucan, (fluconazole) I would add and otc benzoyl peroxide acne wash in the shower — may bleach towels! ...Read more

Thank you. I've had BV &a yeast infection twice that I know of at the same time. Could that cause the cluster of bumps as well?

Thank you. I've had BV &a yeast infection twice that I know of at the same time. Could that cause the cluster of bumps as well?

Warts or herpes?: Neither yeast nor BV would cause a "cluster of bumps". If they are more or less permanent -- i.e. unchanged after more than a few days -- it could be genital warts. If brief and initially blister-like and then sores, herpes is more likely. See a doctor and get it checked out. Good luck! ...Read more

I suspect that I may have a yeast infection I have small white bumps around my vaginal opening that burn and itch. Could this be what I suspect?

I suspect that I may have a yeast infection I have small white bumps around my vaginal opening that burn and itch. Could this be what I suspect?

Yeast? Herpes?: Yeast usually causes itching, irritation, and redness of the affected area, sometimes with white discharge. It could cause "white bumps", but usually not as the only symptom. If these started as blister-like with clear fluid that turned white over a day or two, or if they are becoming open sores, herpes would be likely. Don't take chances: see a doctor for professional evaluation. Good luck! ...Read more
