Customer Question
Hello I was recently...

Hello I was recently diagnosed with a chronic yeast infection. My doctor prescribed me a topical treatment to put on the infection. Today my symptoms have gotten worse. And I now have small ring like bumps/big white bumps. I was prescribed another topic today. This is extremely painful. The only relief I get is in the shower. Is this normal with a chronic yeast infection?

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you had the pain? What seems to make the pain better or worse?

The pain started Monday night I went to the OB yesterday. Symptoms got worse overnight. The shower helps. That’s all the pain is constant

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

No I gave everything I know

HI there. Board-certified obgyn here.

What are the names of the treatments you've been taking?
When your doc saw it yesterday, they said everything looked ok?

Last night I started taking terconazole. Today they prescribed nystatin/terconazole. When I went to the doctor yesterday they started I have a yeast infection with cuts. Around 2am this morning I developed multiple bumps.
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
The bumps are extremely painful
OB GYN Doctor: Dr. J, Board Certified OB/GYN replied 6 months ago

Thank you.

Yes, that does sound painful. The terconzole is to treat yeast infections. I would just use that rather than the nystatin/terconazole combo as that particular one may be too irritating for the vagina. I am not sure what is causing the multiple bumps (if they are new, you may want to get them looked at to be sure it's nothing to worry about) but to soothe the vagina you can try using Desitin or Calmoseptine from over the counter (same stuff we put on babies for diaper rashes just to help with irritation), and do Sitz baths (where you soak in a few inches of lukewarm water 2 or 3 times a day.) But again, if you're experiencing new changes to the skin and horrible pain, it's not a bad idea to get it looked at again.
