I consider this infection to be severe but there is a 3 week wait for the gyno. I've had some basic blood tests including hiv with came back ok. I have a constant low grade fever though.

This is what my labia looks like. Still covered in yeast even after a month or boric acid. Forgot to mention I've had general malaise, intermittent headaches, recurrent throat infections etc. I've not been offered anti fungals at all. Should I go to another gp for an urgent referral or am I being paranoid
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
Sorry forgot to add the burning and itching is severe and sex is extremely painful

Thank you for the valuable information provided.

There are two methods of treating your condition:

HOME BASED TREATMENTS:

Topical management:

APPLICATION of Warm Compresses on the area can help in providing relief.

Using the Cortisone (CORTAID)along with the Over the counter Canestan cream twice a day on the affected area.

All these are available over the counter

.....................................................................................................................

DOCTOR BASED TREATMENTS:

APPLICATION OF Antifungal cream like Sertaconazole or Miconazole on the area will help in giving you rapid relief in the swelling redness and healing of the lesions.

Oral Intake of a Short course of Anti Fungal like Fluconazole for 7 days ( 150 mg ) will help giving the fastest relief along with the applications mentioned. Please note that the above medication mentioned may need a prescription.

I am really worried about how fast this yeast is multiplying. The boric acid pessaries didn't remove it from the labia and now the entire labia is covered in it and it is getting thicker day by day. The infection seems to be around the vaginal entrace/labia only because I don't have any pain internally and during sex it burns in that area and the muscles take a long time to relax. Is there anything over the counter I can use while I am waiting to see the gyno? I am worried that I am going to get a systematic infection from this in the time I am waiting to see the gyno as it appears to be out of control
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
Also I have had a fever of 37.5 - 37.8 deg that will not go down, it has been like that since I got the infection. GP doesn't care less
OB GYN Doctor: DocPhilMD, Doctor replied 1 month ago
