Infection (Definition)

Do I have a yeast infection or std? I have a white cloudy discharge and some itch but thats it.

Do I have a yeast infection or std? I have a white cloudy discharge and some itch but thats it.

Could be either/both: The only way to tell for sure is getting it checked by your doc. You can try otc monistat or vagisil which can treat yeast but nothing else. If either of these meds gets rid of your trouble, then it is yeast infection. If not, you need to see doc for an evaluation/treatment. Untreated std can have devastating consequences such as pelvic inflammatory disease and infertility etc...Good luck. ...Read more

Vaginitis: If you are having a vaginal discharge didn't your doctor examine you and the discharge and give you some type of assessment? Don't know what tests you received, but the best thing to do if you have not been examined is to go and see somebody who will do this. Good luck. ...Read more

I have too much daily vaginal discharge. Tested negative for yeast infection and std. White/thick, or clear. Sometimes it has odor.What's the problem?

Needs testing: There are several causes of bad smelling vaginal discharge and testing is needed to determine the cause and treatment. The most likely is bacterial vaginosis. Bacterial vaginosis is an overgrowth of normal vaginal bacteria. It causes a watery discharge with a fishy odor. It is not sexually transmitted and your partner does not require treatment. It is treated with antibiotics. ...Read more

Male with possible yeast infection. Not std. If i treat it with otc cream and its NOT a yeast infection will that give me one by imbalancing bacteria?

No: If it fails to resolve and you are at risk, be seen and have other cultures. Yeast lives in our bodies and occasionally will overgrow or come out on a surface. You will not upset your normal flora by using a cream for yeast. All the best. ...Read more

I've used choltrimazole for months now because of penile yeast infection all std's results are negative.. But it keeps coming back unless i keep applying the cream. What's happening?

Yeast like: Yeast like dark and damp places - so the warmth of your groin is ideal. Try boxers instead of briefs, sleep commando at night, looser pants, after drying after shower, let air dry for 15 minutes more. Also, ask doc about checking for diabetes as yeast infections are much more common and hard to get rid of in this group of people. Air it out! ...Read more

I have been having thin milky discharge (not lumpy, no oder), and painful bumps around the edge of my vagina. Is this a yeast infection or std?

I have been having thin milky discharge (not lumpy, no oder), and painful bumps around the edge of my vagina. Is this a yeast infection or std?

Could be: Usually yeast is itchy. Std would depend on your sexual history. If it does not itch or smell it could also be physiologic leukorrhea which is normal lubrication discharge, more common in younger women. The bumps may or may not be related. See a doctor for diagnosis or reassurance. ...Read more

Been having vaginal itching for 3 weeks already. I went to the doctors & don't have a yeast infection or std's. Been using Monistat and took diflucon.

Monistat: And Diflucan (fluconazole) would treat yeast, so if you don't have that it is not surprising that you have not benefited. Time to revisit the other potential causes with your doc. ...Read more

Azo still pos for WBCs. No nitrites. On Cipro (ciprofloxacin) for 4 days now. No yeast infection or STD. No other symptoms. Have been stressed about this for days now?

Azo still pos for WBCs. No nitrites. On Cipro (ciprofloxacin) for 4 days now. No yeast infection or STD. No other symptoms. Have been stressed about this for days now?

Testing: No reason to be stressed. This is an easy problem to fix. Schedule a visit for an official urinalysis and urine culture. This will detect if an infection is still present. If other tests are needed then those can be done. The presence of WBCs may or may not indicate an infection or problem. This is a nonspecific finding. ...Read more

No: A topical yeast medication, when used on a skin rash that is actually not a yeast skin rash, will not cause a yeast skin infection... because the topical yeast medication blocks yeast growth. ...Read more
