Dr. David :

This is Dr. David

Dr. David :

sorry you are having these itching symptoms.

Dr. David :

vaginal itching could mean a vaginal yeast infection.

Dr. David :

yeast is a fungal infection and sometimes fungal infections can spread to the skin

Dr. David :

I am glad you had your duodenal ulcer treated. sounded like you could have had an H Pylori infection which needs triple therapy of 2 antibitoics and one proton pump inhibitor.

Dr. David :

back pain in the kidneys could mean a kidney stone or a kidney infection.

Dr. David :

have you had your urine checked?

JACUSTOMER-6dp26qug- :

no have not have urine check.....

Dr. David :

you should get your urine checked for infection.

Dr. David :

sometimes in older women they can have urine infections without symptoms of burning or pain

Dr. David :

you also need a gyn exam to check for vaginal yeast infections which can cause itching.

Dr. David :

do you have any vaginal discharge?

JACUSTOMER-6dp26qug- :

no nothing significant

Dr. David :

I see.

Dr. David :

have you had a vaginal infection before?

Dr. David :

have you tried steroid creams on your skin to help decrease itchiness?

Dr. David :

you might want to try that.

JACUSTOMER-6dp26qug- :

no not anything i remember, no trial of steroids

Dr. David :

or an antifungal cream like clotrimazole to see if that helps the rash.

JACUSTOMER-6dp26qug- :

no tried little hoping it will pass for long time now

Dr. David :

I see.

Dr. David :

well, I hope your symptoms get better.

Dr. David :

don't go too long before seeing a doctor.

Dr. David :

you don't want a urine infection to get out of control before seeing a doctor

Dr. David :

and you don't want a vaginal or skin fungal infection to get severe either.

Dr. David :

best of luck to you

Dr. David :
