Customer Question
Hi Ive had an...

Hi Ive had an ongoing infection recently so my immune system is very low at the moment and I am experiencing extreme vaginal and anal itching

Doctor's Assistant: What are all the symptoms you're experiencing (e.g. loss of appetite, fever, rash)?

No loss of appetite or fever and no rash just constantly itchy and there is no discharge either

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with this? Does anything in particular seem to make the itch better or worse?

Around three weeks now and when I’m laid in the bath it seems to ease I’ve stopped putting soap etc in my bath as I thought this may irritate it

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

The infection that’s been on going has been both fungal and bacterial but it’s been around my ears and face I just wondered if maybe it had spread

I'm sorry you have symptoms of a vaginal and rectal infection. You are correct to have stopped using bath salts/soap in the water as these can be irritating. Since there is no vaginal/anal discharge, the problem is more irritation than infection. There are several things you can do to help this. First purchase over the counter Aveeno Oilated Bath and the second is purchase over the counter 1% Hydrocortisone Cream. Add the Aveeno to your bath water and soak 20 minutes twice daily. After you dry, Apply the Cortisone Cream to the involved areas. This should take about 7 days to resolve, but if not, then schedule an appointment with your doctor for evaluation and possible prescription medication. Also, wear 100% cotton underwear only, any nylon or polyester fabric can cause irritation.

I hope I have addressed your concerns. Have I?

I feel better already! Thank you.

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.

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.
