Avatar f tn Im 26 yr old lady who is suffering from chronic vaginal yeast infection since 6 months. I have tried all flucanazole tablets, suppositories etc but i get temporary relief and it comes back! I am in monogamous relation since past 9 years and since 5 months I have abstained from sex but it still comes back.i have tested for other stds and diabetes but negative. I am highly stressed as i read that it could be 1st sign of HIV in women.
Avatar n tn Or.....your partner can have a yeast infection and you two keep passing it back and forth, have him checked too.
Avatar n tn maybe your mother just has some misinformation about the causes of yeast infection...? regardless, she absolutely should not have been angry with you. it could have been caused by any number of things and it happens to every woman. oceans3, i do recall buying a 7-day Target brand medication once for 8.99, so you weren't far off; just have to shell out a few more bucks for the quicker fix.
Avatar n tn your nose should not in itself cause boils or blisters, just makes them harder to treat if they do. Recurring blisters in yr face however can have a lot of causes. Obviously herpes and bacterial infection ('impetigo like') could be easily found out and treated. But if it is allergy based, it might be more difficult to discover what is the exact agens causing it.
Avatar n tn Now I seem to have to a penile yeast infection again and I am thinking that I didn't treat it properly and that the yeast infection manifesting in my body has cause the outbreaks on my face as well. My question is, what should I use to treat the yeast infection and the skin patches on my face.
Avatar f tn I took her to a pediatrician about the issue, unfortunately it was a new doctor and I'm not to pleased with his examination of the rash. She was treated with a cream for the yeast infection in the diaper area and then I was told that the facial rash was nothing more than "dry skin" which I am well aware of what dry skin looks like and that is not what it was. But it was fading that day so he probably didn't see what I had seen the days before the visit.
Avatar n tn Several months ago, I noticed the corners of my mouth becoming dry and cracked. Almost at the same time I noticed a yeast infection on my genitals. Fast forward a couple of months, the dry cracked corners of my mouth seem to have spread downwards towards my chin and are larger and redder now. Also, there is redness that is slightly flaky on either side of my nose extending down to the top of my mouth. As well there is similar redness on the middle of my forehead above my eyebrows.
Avatar n tn I got tested for Genital herpes which came out negative, but I have been looking online and alot of people say that many people get a misdiagonosis of Herpes as a Yeast infection. That is when I was diagonosed with a yeast infection (Papsmear and they found alittle Yeast). I've been lost ever since the Middle of November because this is when it seems to have been happening!
Avatar f tn Would Lab not make the diagnosis when my swabs were sent in for yeast? It has to be some deep skin structure Derm infection coz antifungal creams help but does not cure it completely. Also, I did not know the hygiene practises with it coz i didnt know what I got. Its with your and God's assistance here we may have an end to this nightmare finally. I am seeing Doc Tuesday or Wed whenever I get an appt.
Avatar n tn Infective causes are sexually transmitted and include syphilis, chancroid, genital herpes, LGV, trichomonas, gonorrhea, Chlamydia and granuloma inguinale. Yeast infection by candida albicans can cause red itchy bumps on penis. You need to get a complete STD panel done. Traumatic penile ulcers may be caused by vigorous acts of masturbation or sex. Behcet's disease (if you have mouth ulcers too), Stevens-Johnson syndrome and diabetes (if the ulcer is not healing) should be explored.
Avatar f tn my daughter has white spots which are like very small bumps on her face, not sure what causes this. do you have pictures of different things like this or would have any idea what it may be?
Avatar m tn Skin biopsies reveal lymphocytic and eosinophilic inflammation around the hair follicles The causes of infection are mite Demodex, the yeast Pityrosporum, and bacteria An autoimmune process has also been investigated.
Avatar n tn In addition, spongiotic dermatitis can also be contracted at a relatively young age and in babies it takes the form of a diaper rash and as far as gender distribution is concerned, men are thrice as likely to get it as compared to women, and the problem will cause an itching in your skin that can even turn into a rash.
Avatar f tn One such example is a condition known as tinea versicolor, a superficial yeast infection that produces white spots on the skin that are difficult to remove. Some of the perceived causes are emotional stress, hereditary factors, worms, sunburns and physical illness. This skin condition can be aggravated due to diseases like hyperthyroidism, diabetes mellitus, pernicious anemia and Addison's disease. You should talk to your doctor and rule out the above causes.
5864500 tn?1380893197 Hi, I am suffering from ear infection for the last 3 to 4 years. The doctors had prescribed me Clotrimazole, Ketoconazole and other antifungals, and I have used them sincerely but in vein. After using for 1-2 months, when I stop medication, it comes back again. I find white scales coming out of my ears. It seems the infection is limited to the external ears only. Can anybody advice me?

Avatar n tn ) and Bactroban (for the infection). The infection went away about three weeks ago and the area looked like it was getting better (the red mark was fading, though it looks like there might be a scar there - or a red blemish under the skin). I went to my doctor this past Tuesday for a follow-up. He felt a little bit of a cyst there and gave me another shot of cortisone.
Avatar n tn About 2 months ago I had this terrible itchy feeling in and outside my vagina that I thought was a yeast infection. I couldn't get into the doctor right away so I took Monistat 3. For some reason I didn't use the 3rd night but felt fine after a few days and my symptoms were gone for a few weeks. Then it came back, just much less severe but won't go away. There is hardly any discomfort on the outside only a tiny bit of burning every once and while.
Avatar n tn I had my first yeast infection like 3 month ago, 2 weeks ago I went to the gyno and she gave me a pill name Fluconazole (Difulcan) first it was only 1 pill.She told me that this pill is so strong that it will stay in my body for a month. That I shouldn't have sex again in a month but she never told me nothing about monistat, I know about this cream 'cause before I went to the gyno I was using it. So ladys NO SEX IN A MONTH....
Avatar n tn One such example is a condition known as tinea versicolor, a superficial yeast infection that produces white spots on the skin that are difficult to remove. You should talk to your doctor and rule out the above causes. There are several treatment options available for acne - topical application creams, oral medications, laser treatment etc. It would be best to consult your dermatologist to decide about the best treatment option in your case.
1517754 tn?1290790562 I had a yeast infection a few weeks before giving birth and had thought it had gone away but apparently not and she developed thrush via delivery. My doctor gave me a prescription for diflucan for me to take orally for ten days and her face seemed to get better while I was taking it. She was getting it through my breast milk. I stopped taking them when they ran out and it has come back. I wasn't sure if yeast could cause a facial rash? It looks like a dry red irritated rash.
Avatar n tn The doctor admitted that pre-diabetic neuropathy was a reach for her because she didn't know what else it could be. She firmly does not believe a yeast or fungal infection or any kind of worm infection would cause my left foot to tingle. She observed the sole of my left foot that had a pinhole scar in it from stepping on a nail 4 years ago. She said the wound closed over so a fungal infection via that wound was unlikely. So, there we are. I am hopeful the lack of symptoms will continue.
Avatar n tn Please bear in mind that if you get a yeast infection and stop taking your antibiotic because of the yeast infection - you may still have some bad bacteria that are resistant to the drug and this could be bad in the long run....more medications, different antibiotics, you getting sick again, etc... - it's not fun, seriously. Now coming from a future pharmacist, yes, i'm still in pharmacy I ever finish my entire antibiotic regimine - most
Avatar f tn One gynecologist finally told me to stop all medication as I had a bad yeast infection. HOwever, before this my face had become swollen and eyelids swollen with a twitch. So the swelling finally went down but I noticed on my eyelids the skin is looking a little different to the rest of my face. Also noticed like a circular patch under the bags of my eyes that is like indented, like a crater but not very deep. probably around 1.5 cm in diameter.
Avatar f tn Hello, This can be due to vulvodynia which can be due to many causes like persistent vaginal yeast infection, irritation to antifungal treatment , sensitivity or allergy to something touching the vulva, such as soap or bubble bath, a drop in the hormone oestrogen, causing dryness of the vulva, stress, lichen sclerosus or recurrent herpes simplex infection. Although genital warts don't cause pain, they can cause discomfort during sexual activity. So this also needs evaluation.
Avatar m tn In most cases, the exact cause of the NGU isn't known; there are no tests for most of the bacteria that cause it. Yeast rarely causes NGU; I doubt that's the problem. And certainly you are not "allergic to her menstrual cycle". But that does not mean your girlfriend is not infected. Probably she is, even though her tests are normal.
Avatar n tn I'm on prolonged antibiotics for another condition and I thought it might be a low-level yeast infection (which don't always come with white discharge). An anti-yeast pill like Diflucan has helped in the past, but I haven't tried it this time. I never thought about the soap irritation mentioned above, but will try the Cetaphil cleanser (I use their lotion). Thank you to everyone who posted -- !
Avatar n tn In the meantime I am covered from hairline to abdomen in these red, ***** bumps. Any thoughts? If it is a yeast infection in my skin, do I need to cut back on foods with a high yeast or sugar content? Will steaming my face and chest and applying a clay mask help at all?
