Three weeks ago my...

Three weeks ago my vagina was swollen and itchy all the way from my clit to my anus, my Bowles have been irregular, I'm extremely gassy the itchyness and burning are more severe at night and I feel like my anus hurts from pooping so much. My iouter caginal lips are red and swollen.

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

I had it about 3 weeks ago, it went away after about a week but it just started again.

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

It started about 4 dads after my last Pap smear that came back normal

Any ideas?

Dear customer

Thank you for being online.

The symptoms you have described of having recurrence of symptoms after 3 weeks of swelling & itching in vagina mostly at night is most likely due to yeast infection.It is one of the most common infection in females.

Another possibility is of bacterial infection called bacterial vaginosis.

Following is recommended for you now:

· Apply ointment monistat vaginal cream.It is a broad spectrum anti-fungal agent.It is available as over the counter without prescription & will help you greatly.

· Probiotics are one of the most important parts of a Candida albicans/yeast infection cure..There are many brands of probiotics easily available as over the counter at your pharmacy.

If still after this the symptoms persists,then you need to make an appointment with your doctor as prescription oral antifungal medication like fluconazole (diflucan) or Itraconazole (sporanox) and/or oral antibiotics will then be required accordingly.Usually & most likely,the symptoms gets subside with these treatment & doctor visit & prescription medications are less likely required.

Thank you.

Hope this helped

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.
