Thrush On The Lips Of The Vagina Near The Perineum?
Good afternoon, I want to ask On the right lip of the vagina near the perenium there is like thrush. Initially appeared a white vaginal discharge that smelled of acid and sour, itchy and then I scratched. The next day like a small wound and swelled. which makes it difficult for me to walk or sit. The next day the wound turned into like thrush. And finally I menstruated. After menstruation the wound is not too painful. But if exposed to water still feels sore. I have consulted a doctor, he said this was just an ordinary wound and given antibiotic ointment. What I want to ask is is this a symptom of syphilis or a common yeast infection?
Hello Endah, Thank you for the question.
Open sores like canker sores that you experience can be caused by:
genital herpers, characterized by water lesions in the genital area which can rupture into open sores that cause syphilis pain, characterized by lesions / sores in the genital area without painful folliculitis, ie infection of the hair follicles caused by infection bacteria that can rupture and become irritated wounds for example due to the use of pads, soap, detergent clothing. Further examination by a doctor is needed to ascertain the cause of your complaint. Therefore, if you are still unsure of the opinion of the doctor beforehand, you can consult with other doctors or if necessary to a dermatologist and a specialist. In addition to asking further questions about your complaint, the doctor also needs to conduct a direct examination of the wound you intended. After ascertaining the cause, the doctor will provide further treatment.
Please keep the area dry and clean. Avoid using tight celanat and use clean and dry underwear that easily absorbs sweat. In the future, avoid free sex by changing partners and if having sex, always use a condom to prevent sexually transmitted infections.
I hope this helps.
