I have a question regarding an ulcer I have on my vagina

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with the issue? In general, how has your health been lately?

The ulcer formed two days ago. I am currently on antibiotics, I do not think it could be herpes. I have not been in contact with that, I know for sure. Could the antibiotics or a bacterial infection cause one single sore?

Thank you. the antibiotics I am on is the Z pack- I have been on it for four days and the ulcer appeared a day or so after the start of the antibiotic. Again there is no pain nor discomfort, I just want a piece of mind.

I​'m sorry to hear that you have been suffering from a vaginal ulcer. The most common causes of ulcers in the vaginal region include:

- Herpes / Shingles

- Syphilis

- Chancroid

I have listed them in order of how common they are. Since you are sure that you could not have been exposed to herpes, you should seek testing for the other 2 infections. They can both be treated and cured.

FYI, syphilis is the most common cause of a painless genital ulcer. Please let me know if I can answer any additional questions for you.

Is there any other reason for it? such as use of the antibiotic?

N​o, Azithromycin doesn't cause ulcers. There are other rare causes of ulcers, such as Stevens Johnson syndrome, pemphigus vulgarus, bullous empetigo.

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.
