Yeast infections in wounds

Common Questions and Answers about Yeast infections in wounds


Avatar n tn Ever since I started back on the pill about two years ago, I keep getting yeast infections. I have had 10 in the past year and a half. I always get the same two paper cuts...sort of small linesin the exact same places. Sometimes they bleed, but most they are sore straight lines. I only get them with a yeast infection and one is in the same place as yours. Now my doctor has treated me for yeast as the culture always comes up showing yeast.
Avatar n tn Both my husband and i had full screening for VD prior to marrage. I have a few open wounds in my pubic area - very itchy. I am trying to get pregnant and so really concerned this could creat a complication.
Avatar m tn However I kept getting this stinging feeling on the tip of my penis and it's been recurring since December, the doctor said it is yeast infection on the penile head and gave me a cream. However the yeast infection has been recurrent since then, appearing two times for long period of time in January I went to the doctor so many times but no luck, once in February and now again in March two times. Since yesterday it got worse stinging me a lot and I started using the cream again.
Avatar f tn Anyway recently I ask my medical doctor about it again and she suggested I have it done... especially since it causes me so much pain.. I get yeast infections under the flaps that hang.. So I am now considering doing it.. and since they cause me so much pain my insurance will pay for it.. Although, I am still recovering from a hysterectomy so it will be a while before I make a decision about when I will have it done..
Avatar n tn I was visiting with my mom the last two days and she made me a salad with brewer's yeast on top two nights in a row and now my ears are itching again (I normally don't eat brewer's yeast). Who knows if beer and brewer's yeast are really the cause, but my symptoms are enough to make me think that they have something to do with it. (I can eat bread and other things with yeast in it, but maybe beer and brewer's yeast puts me over the edge.
Avatar n tn in the last two weeks i have had three blood vessels just pop in my fingers. i was not doing anything out of the ordinary. what could be causing this? should there be a cause for concern?
Avatar n tn I am 24 and a mother, i always get these things on vaginal area, they really aren't nice, and they can be down to bad eating habits, and constantly wearing underwear or tight fitting clothing, shaving in the vaginal area is a really really bad idea and can cause all types of infections, and yes they can be passed down from mother to child, in some severe cases they can cause blindness but only through really bad hygiene, if you want to get rid of hair use hair removal cream or wax for extra sen
537731 tn?1268268886 Througout the day I have to wash out eyes, out my fingers in eye to remove the stuff- I know this can't be good but it happens so often I have to. It is clear, and runs in the bottom of eye, on eye, top of inside eye, long stringy goo. I can lightly wet a cutip- put in inside corner of eye and spin. The stuff goes from top to bottom. It is such an irritant. What could this be- I went to dr before and they said it was allergies. All the time I dont think so.
Avatar f tn I'd been getting progressively sicker over the past few years and none of the many specialists I went to could figure out the cause of my MANY symptoms (broad range, developed over time so they seemed unrelated).
Avatar n tn hi im 14 years old nd i hava a discoloriationin between my thighs nd near the vaginal area i am a virgin nd never had a yeast in fection im really scared bout it cuz i take 1-2 showers a day nd i dnt know wat is goin onalso on da labia nd inner labia
Avatar n tn Constant thirst Frequent urination Nausea or vomitting Unexplained weight gain or loss Blurry vision Leg cramps Itchy skin, but no rash Reoccuring yeast infections in women, itchy penis in men Frequent boils Irritability Headaches Slow healing wounds Tingling sensation in hands,arms,feet, or legs I just had by sheer accident an FBS test and it became 180 first time. The Doc asked me if I had any of the above symptoms. I said NO. He ordered another FBS test on the morrow. The FBS became 163.
Avatar n tn Do I have anything to fear about as my oral health was quite poor in 2009 due to few punctured wounds in my mouth as couple of root canals were broken and every now and then punctured oral mucosa. However, wounds did not feel bleeding or open at that time. Also, sometimes I used to get pus in lower molar as wisdom tooth was coming out in a broken manner and used to make food get stuck.
458072 tn?1291418786 This is because I have had repeated sinus infections that have not cleared up after 2 rounds of the strongest antibiotic (orally) they could give me. The ENT will go in and clean out everything in there, sounds gross. Due to these sinus problems going along with the hypothyroidism, I am wondering if it will do any good, or if it will just come back. Anyways....I was hoping someone could maybe give me some tips on the recovery part of this surgery.
Avatar n tn You are probably talking about Hidradenitis suppurativa, which presents as recurrent boil-like pus-like discharge abscesses resulting in difficult-to-heal open wounds and scarring. It commonly occurs on apocrine sweat gland-bearing skin such as in the groin, the underarms and under the breasts. It is also known as ‘acne inversa’. The disease can spread to genitals. It can also be due to staphylococcal skin infections. Wash skin with antiseptic lotions daily to decrease bacteria.
Avatar n tn She suggested that maybe I had a fungal infection, and should try using the same eternal cream that women use for yeast infections. As i have always been an extremely clean person, I found this suggestion a bit insulting. Of course I did not try her suggestion. I have; however, tried using creams for hemorrhoids, but the odor is still present. However, I am getting off the issue here, so back to my problem.
Avatar n tn Get some Gold Bond Powder and some Jock itch cream. If you are not better in a week, get your yeast medicine, just like ladies use, at Wally World. Put a thin layer on your problem for 1 week. The yeast meds will burn, so if you put too much on, be prepared, you will have pain worse than your having now. Go to your MD if that dont help.
Avatar n tn From 2005 to sept 2008 every three months I would start itching vaginally, no odor no discharge. Yeast medication did not stop it. Nothing would. In sept of 2008 I got poison ivy on my hand which spread to my bottom, then my vaginal area and I had the worse infection of my life, which took 5 months to heal. The scars on my buttocks are horrible. This July, again another hand infection, suspected poison oak, which again spread.
Avatar f tn Community-associated MRSA (CA-MRSA) infections are ones that occur in otherwise healthy people who have not recently been in the hospital. The infections have occurred among athletes who share equipment or personal items (such as towels or razors) and children in daycare facilities. Members of the military and those who get tattoos are also at risk. The number of CA-MRSA cases is increasing. Symptoms Staph skin infections cause a red, swollen, and painful area on the skin.
Avatar m tn Hello Elle~You may have a zinc deficiency, if this is the case, you will experience body odor, it seems to be one of the symptoms of being deficient in this mineral. It can be obtained at any health food store, and is not too expensive. Goldenseal is one of the most popular herbs on the market today. It was traditionally used by Native Americans to treat skin disorders, digestive problems, liver conditions, diarrhea, and eye irritations.
Avatar n tn Thus, even tiny wounds, or bruises and skin infections (yeast, bacterial infections) have difficulties in healing. But when these infections occur in hairy areas, the hair begins to fall in those areas. And your body retards in healing and re-growth of the lost hair. This results in a visibly hair loss. Source:

1142929 tn?1271626435 and it was a yeast infection...I guess I should just worry about that. But just in case should I get tested for herpes? Even just to put my mind at ease? thank you for your help.... I dunno if I'll ever be able to have a normal sex life....
Avatar m tn Acetyl L-Carnitine Problem: Brain drain This amino acid converts fats to energy and boosts antioxidant activity in the body. In supplement form, it may protect gray matter from stress caused by alcohol and aging. And in a 2006 study, people who received 1,000 milligrams (mg) of acetyl L-carnitine a day saw relief from mild chronic depression.
Avatar m tn Can have many causes from allergy, fungal infection, yeast infections, parasites, boredom, etc. I'm not familiar with that food. Does it have corn in it? You might try one of the Natural Balance foods like Fish and Sweet potato for a few weeks. The licking noise at night would drive me nuts too. LOL! You can try soaking his feet in a mixture of about 1 Tlbs vinegar to 1 cup of water. Maybe he can stand in a cup or small tub, one or two feet at a time.
Avatar f tn I just wish I new what to do for this naturally, as when I taked the meds I now cannot get rid of yeast infections. I never thought this would plague my life to much.
1914587 tn?1322606059 After 14 days in the hospital they had to operate again to remove my drainage tube while I was sedated, because they discovered when they had to yank hard on the tube and it didn't budge that it had grown into my organs and healing wounds. I was sent home with very minimal pain medication and was in severe pain and shaking violently. I then went to see my family doctor, Mary noble, and she concluded that I was most likely going through withdrawal from stopping the dilaudid too abruptly.
Avatar f tn While I will elaborate on why I doubt that this is HSV below, I suggest that you have a health care provider take a look. This may be a persistent yeast infection. In addition, antibiotics alone can also sometimes cause rashes which have a tendency to "weep" and remain present even after you have stopped taking antibiotics.
Avatar n tn I have had too many yeast infections to even count over the last 28 years since starting my period, but I have all the symptoms you ladies do as well. Any suggestions??
Avatar f tn I have had a yeast infection nonstop for about 3 years in conjunction with periodic urinary tract infections, I also have had biweekly to bimonthly chronic throat infections both on and around the tonsils (white stones) and major swelling causing pressure on my ears to the point of frequent ear aches for eight months along with forever surfacing blister type fluid filled lesions to join the other two types of infections.
Avatar n tn If you are getting these and are on suppressive therapy, you really need to follow up on it and be seen when you have them and get tested for yeast and bacterial infections vaginally for starters. I do recommend using a different razor for shaving the pubic hair if you prefer to shave it all off. If you just neaten up the edges so you don't look like your grandmother in your panties, the same one you use for the rest of the body should be fine.
