I've had itching, burning (now swelling from scratching

Customer Question
probably ) off and on...
I've had itching, burning (now swelling from scratching probably ) off and on for 10 days. First around the outside of the vagina opening then my clitoris. Kind of back and forth, sometimes both sometimes it calms down. More discharge than normal but clear, not like yeast infection. No smell either
Have had the same sexual partner for year and a half
Lots of itching elsewhere also, shins arms shoulders back. Face also has some red patchy spots, little zits more like tiny blisters.
Most likey reaction to severe stress? Selling house, divorce, self employed business issues. So miserable, what can I do?

is there any rash associated with itching?

Do you have a history of allergies?

Face, arms shoulders have a few bumps, not sure enough to qualify as rash. Have a couple of similar size bumps around vagina opening also, pin head size approx on all
OB GYN Doctor: Doctor John MD, Board Certified MD replied 7 months ago

have you tried taking any oral antihistamines/allergy medications?

Not yet, was thinking of getting benedryl after work
OB GYN Doctor: Doctor John MD, Board Certified MD replied 7 months ago

would recommend zyrtec or claritin since both are once a day compared to every 6 hours with the benadryl.
Benadryl can also be sedating as well.

have you tried any vaginal creams as well?

Miconazole nitrate cream hasn't helped much, avacado oil seems to soothe it more
OB GYN Doctor: Doctor John MD, Board Certified MD replied 7 months ago

the coconut oil may also help as well.

what dose of the miconazole did you try? The Monistat 1 and Monistat 3 can be irritating at first. Monistat 7 takes longer to treat, but usually less irritating.

Used the topical cream, had yeast infection before, this itches like that but don't have the white lumpy discharge. Tried one dose of 1 day the first day this started (10 days ago), burned so so bad, didn't help think it made it worse
OB GYN Doctor: Doctor John MD, Board Certified MD replied 7 months ago

ok, so would continue the oil and take claritin or zyrtec to help with the itching. If not improved by Monday, then would make appointment with your doctor.

Does that help answer your question?

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.
