There’s nothing on my skin
Customer: replied 10 days ago.
It’s all inside, I feel like I need to wee but I can’t and then it’s itchy from the inside, if taken tablet for thrush and nothing’s helped

What tablet have you taken and how have you confirmed that it is not thrush please?

Customer: replied 10 days ago.
Fluconazole
I have had no discharge and the tablet has made no change in my symptoms so I pressure it isn’t thrush, I had sex with my partner and we used aloe Vera oil and I’m not sure if this has irritated my skin or caused an infection? I’m unsure but it’s really uncomfortable

I was just about to ask this - if you had used any other application or herbal medication.

I feel that the possibilities are -

1. Vaginal candidiasis.

2. Local allergic response or inflammation due to the irritant or contact dermatitis due to oil.

3. Bacterial Vaginosis - unlikely as it is only itching and not other symptoms like pain or fever.

 

I suggest -

1. Tablet Hydroxizine 25mg at 12am/6am/12pm/6pm (Non OTC)

2. Syrup Benadryl (12.5mg/5ml) 10ml at 3am/9am/3pm/9pm (OTC)

3. Topical emollients and lotions will help.

 

If not settling - you might require - vaginal swab for culture and sensitivity so that we will have a microbiological diagnosis please.

So how many tablets do you suggest taking? 4 for a day?
Customer: replied 10 days ago.
Where am I able to buy this hydroxizine from?
Hydroxyzine is not available over the counter rather than that you can take syrup Benadryl as I had suggested.
