Not sure if it's just a yeast infection
It's been close to two months since taking the antibiotic Keflexen. A few weeks after finishing the medication, I started to have a little feminine itching. I wrote it off as my Mirena, as that occurred during the first month after insertion. Now in this time my husband and I had intercourse. Including anal sex. After our last rendezvous I decided it was indeed a yeast infection and treated it. Once the week was up, the symptoms had all subsided in my vaginal area. But all the sudden I started getting intense anal itching, especially at night. As I cannot control my scratching in my sleep, the area became raw even having a few lacerations. I went to the doctor and explained everything to him. He agreed that it probably was a yeast infection and prescribed some cream to put on at night around my anus and perineum. I've been treating it for 3 days now, and I'm getting zero relief. The red area has spread up my crack and has raised edges with a few bumps along the edge. Is it more than a yeast infection?? My husband and I have been together for four years and have a wonderful relationship. I do not think this has anything to do with an outside source. I was typing in my symptoms and herpes came up, but could you go years before ever having any symptoms??
