Customer Question
I have canker sores...

I have canker sores on my labia. I got them only after I was treated for a UTI and was diagnosed with another UTI. It started out with two and now I have them all over on the inside of my privates. Could it be herpes? I have never experienced this before and I'm not promiscuous. I have only been with 1 man for the past 10 years what could it be?

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you had the pain? What seems to make the pain better or worse?

The doctor I saw gave me nystatin but it hasn't helped

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I'm diabetic and right before this started I thought it was a yeast infection

Hello,I am Dr. Aren and I will help with your query.Yes,it could be Herpes or any other STD.You need to take a STD panel as well as blood tests for HSV1 and 2.Being a diabetic makes matters slightly difficult ,but once investigated and treated ,the sores should end with the right therapy.Your blood sugar levels need to be under strict control for healing to occur.

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
