Hi, I just finished my period and this intense itching came down there along with a discoloration (from pink to white) of the entering vaginal wall, I didn't think anything of it at first however reading on here about a vaginal itch, I think I have a yeast infection since it's been like this for a few days now and really irritating me. The only thing is that I'm overseas in an arab country so I'm going to try home remedies since I wouldn't know what to even ask for at a pharmacy here nor do I want to enter the hospital system ... will yogurt help? Consuming it or putting it directly in the area? Cranberry juice? Salty bath or one with baking soda? I just don't want it to get worse and then something really bad happens. Answered by Beaulah Casewell 12 months ago.
It may be bacterial vaginosis. does it smell really fishy? If it does it may be that. It could also be an sexually transmitted diease. You are best to go see your doctor and ask for a swab done for STD's, bacterial vaginosis and a pap all at once. Some STD's will require a blood test as well. I had not had a pap in awhile and when I got bacterial Vaginosis I had a pap done at the same time I was swabbed for the infection and STD's. Turned out it was my body's way of telling me I had cervical changes. I had CIN 3 which is a step before cervical cancer. Please don't leave anything to chance. There are alot of different medications that can help with whatever you may have. Answered by Mona Thibert 12 months ago.
yeast grows in dark, warm , sweaty places. So making shure you are dry and sweat free is a big help. When comming out the shower make shure you are completely dry before putting on clothing. Eating yougurt helps also, it is a good bacteria, which help battle the bad ones and get them in check, but does take a while to go thru your system and regulate. But yeast infections can go away without medical treatment. Try to keep some extra tissue or pantyliner for any "dripps" LOL youll be OK. Answered by Lynn Nicarry 12 months ago.
Yogurt does help, try to eat at least one thing of yogurt a day. I'm prone to yeast infections, so I HAVE to eat yogurt. And yes, you consume it. Don't put it anywhere near down there. It's unsanitary. Warm baths, I wouldn't know about salt or baking soda, but warm baths do help. No bubbles though, bubble baths just make it worse. Answered by Gale Tua 12 months ago.
Yes yogurt will help. Eat it. Eat lots. One for breakfast and two for lunch. Eat what you want for dinner because yogurt for all three meals would be torture! Answered by Lilliana Waterfield 12 months ago.
Can vaginal infections go away by themselves?
I forgot to mention that it was green yesterday but when I checked today after school it was gray(the discharge). Also I haven't had my period in about 3 mnths but I know I'm not pregnant cause I'm still a virgin
Asked by Kendra Tikkanen 12 months ago.
can they? my discharge is grayish, but its not the color of it that has me worried, its the texture. When on the panty, it just looks different idk how to explain it. That's pretty much the only thing wrong I guess because it doesn't smell foul or anything. I don't want to tell my mom I need to go to the doctor because I might have a vaginal infection, I can't trust her with stuff like that cause she tells people like her friends or family members. And there's really no one else I can ask. I'm 15 jsyk Answered by Ryan Ashmore 12 months ago.
No they can't..you have to go and see your doctor for a prescription (a cream for instance) OR Treatment of Vaginal Infections The treatment for vaginal infections depends on the cause. Bacterial vaginosis is often treated with a prescription medication called metronidazole (Flagyl, Protostat). This medication is taken by mouth. Sometimes it causes an upset stomach or nausea. If you drink alcohol while taking this drug, you may have nausea and vomiting. There are other medicines that may be taken by mouth for this infection, such as clindamycin (Cleocin), and there are also vaginal creams and gels. A yeast infection is usually treated with creams and suppositories that are placed in the vagina. The length of treatment may vary from one to seven days. Some of these medicines are now available without prescription, such as miconazole (Monistat) and clotrimazole (Gyne-Lotrimin or Mycelex-G), and you may use then when you know you have a yeast infection. If the infection does not get better or comes back soon, you should see your doctor to make sure of the diagnosis and treatment. Trichomonas vaginitis is also treated with metronidazole, taken by mouth. However, because this infection is often passed back and forth between sexual partners, it is necessary that the partner also take the medication to prevent it coming back. Questions To Ask Your Doctor About Vaginal Infections Do the symptoms indicate a vaginal infection? What is it called? What treatment do you recommend? Which drugs will you use? How can this infection be prevented? Is the OTC drug Gyne-Lotrimin helpful if the infection comes back? Answered by Patience Schlissel 12 months ago.

I'm 14 and my vagina has recently started to be sometimes itchy. When i scratch or touch it it becomes more itchy and yesterday there were white clumps (like cottage cheese) on my vagina. Its not itchy all the time though. It started on sunday/monday and on saturday night i got fingered a few times by two different people and it was in a park so i was thinking there could be dirt or something there. I'm a virgin, and I'm too embarrassed to tell my parents or see i doctor.... i don't know what to do HELP. I also had tonsillitis last week and was but on medication, could this be cause of it? Answered by Lela Duplechin 12 months ago.
YOU SAID------ It started on sunday/monday and on saturday night i got fingered a few times by two different people and it was in a park so i was thinking there could be dirt or something there. if you get fingered by two different people in a park you seem to be a bold person. Why are you embarrassed to tell your parents or see a doctor. you seem to having mild yeast/candidiasis infection. Most women can treat yeast infections at home with over-the-counter medications. A number of OTC remedies are available: miconazole (Micon 7, Monistat 3, Monistat 5, Monistat 7, M-Zole Dual Pack) clotrimazole (Femcare, Gyne-Lotrimin, Mycelex-G) Massage these remedies into your vagina and surrounding tissues for 1-7 days depending on the formulation. If increased irritation occurs to the area, discontinue the medication immediately. Answered by Scot Gillam 12 months ago.
It sounds like an infection of some sort. Most likely a yeast infection. Go to your doctor and say you think you have a yeast infection. You don't have to tell your parents about being fingered, just say you think you might have a yeast infection and that's that. Either way get it checked out by a doctor, they know best and can give you the right medication. No, I doubt tonsillitis medication would cause something like that.

Antibiotics cause yeast infections. Just tell your mom or dr you think you got a yeast infection from being on the antibiotics Answered by Glenna Nardelli 12 months ago.
Actually it COULD have something to do with your tonsillitis medication, antibiotics can upset the balance of vaginal yeasts Answered by Billy Wilker 12 months ago.
