Doctor, a couple days ago you have me some advice on my yeast infection. For the most part it’s gotten better except last night I itched a lot and apparently now I have raw skin on my vulva. I am seeing an ob/gyn tomorrow, but am not sure how to relieve and heal this raw skin patch (photo attached).
Thanks in advance.

I’m the very beginning especially white thick clumpy discharge. No smell. Not painful to touch, but itchy. Currently no other medical issues. I have been itchy down there since having my baby 10 months ago, on and off. It feels much better, except now for this spot after starting the Mobistar treatment.

Also, before I noticed this, I did put an ice pack on that area to help relieve itching...I may have left the ice on too long too.

Sorry, typo - my period should be starting in one-two days also.

Dear,

Thanks for all these additional details.

I am sorry to hear about your problem.

Well, such symptoms can be related to Pruritus Vulvae.

Stress can also aggravate this condition.

It is not related to any serious issue and can be easily managed.

You can follow below measures-

· You should Bath or shower daily and after sweating. You should not wear clothes that are too tight.

· You can apply a warm, moist washcloth or compress to the affected area 4-5 times a day to relieve discomfort and help the area drain.

· You can try over-the-counter hydrocortisone cream to affected area twice a day.

· You can use a clean washcloth and towel to dry off each time you wash.

Please use above measures, and most likely in next few days, you would become free from symptoms.

Hope this helped

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.
