Customer Question
Hi khagihara. Several years...
Hi khagihara. Several years ago, I was told that I contracted genital herpes from my husband performing oral sex on me a few days before he developed a cold sore. Swabs for HSV-1 or HSV-2 were never done. My physician just went by the symptoms I described to him. At least every two weeks for the past 6 months, I have white vaginal sloughing....which resembles yeast.....and I have itchy sores. Valtrex does not resolve it. Do you think it could possibly be something other than herpes?

Hello,

genital herpes causes typical blisters, the symptoms you describe don´t point to such an infection. Yeast or another bacterial reason is much more likely, this should be verified by a laboratory smear examination. In this way the presence of herpes viruses can be checked too.

Kind regards,

Dr. N. Scheufele

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.

Daughter is 13. No contact with anyone. Came to me and said
Came to me and said she had a sort of blister she popped while in the pool. I didn't think much of it. Said to her it might have been an ingrown hair. She then came and said that some skin beside it felt itchy, and 2 bumps were forming. She showed me. The popped one is weeping a bit. The other two look a little raised. She is extremely clean. Changes her underwear 5 times a day. (drives me nuts, the amount of laundry.. But at least she's in the right direction)... She is home schooled with her brothers and has not had any inappropriate contact. One of the pools here in Costa Rica (where we are living this year) has been shocked quite hard this week. And she said she used a new bar of soap from a hotel we were at last week and she thought the bar was cute. So she's been using that. What are your thoughts? … read more
