Customer Question

I've been getting cuts on my vagina and now close to my anus. It's gotten so bad that I now am very itchy in the anus region along with cuts right below my vagina opening. It's been three days. I've been tested before and I have no stds but I always get these cuts that go away after a couple days but this is adding more. And now my left lymphnode is swollen in the groin area.

Hello,

your description suggest a genital herpes as a reason for these symptoms. Please visit your OB/GYN for a reliable diagnosis, treatment then should be done with a virustatic medicament like aciclovir.

Hope you get well soon, best regards,

I was also prescribed difulcan flucazole and hydrocortisone cream when this happened to me in the past and it worked

A successful use of these medicaments suggest a yeast infection as a reason. So I would recommend this treatment again, if it doesn´t resolve the problem, another examination (including laboratory investigation) would be the only way.
