Resolved Question:

Hi, I had sex with my boyfriend on Saturday and on Sunday I was red raw on the inner lips of my vulva. This is still agony and hurts to pee and it looks like some of it might be ulcerating. I have increased discharge but no smell/change in colour etc. is there anything you can recommend as this doesn't seem to be healing?

Dr Owen :

Hello

Dr Owen :

When you had sex were you using a condom and if so, was it a latex condom?

Dr Owen :

did you use any lubricant?

Dr Owen :

thank you

Customer: Hi, no condom or lubricant as I'm on the pill
Dr Owen :

okay - I was just asking about the condom because of a possible allergy.

Dr Owen :

Then what you have is a yeast infection

Dr Owen :

There are few things I suggests

Customer: Even though there is no change in discharge?
Dr Owen :

yes.....Here is what I suggest

Dr Owen :

1. Canestan (also known as Clotrimazole cream)

Dr Owen :

2. Hydrocortisone (also known as cortisone)

Dr Owen :

3. and then get a Probiotic that contains Lactobaccillus acidophius this will you maintain a good pH (acid-base) balance.

Dr Owen :

The first two will help you to heal

Customer: Great, thanks
Dr Owen :

the 3rd item will help prevent this from returing.
