Skin infection and biopsy vs YI?
So I went to the doctor for the 1000th time for my ever-present yeast infection. Last time she put me on diflucan every 72 hours for three days and on my last check up she said the yeast wasn't there anymore, so all better. But she did notice I was swollen and red and yucky. She mentioned that I should get a biopsy of the skin because it may be a skin infection. She said the results are no big deal, they just treat it with different creams. Should I get this done? I've done EVERYTHING in attempts to get this yeast infection. And she said, like my other doctor (I went for a second opinion) that inside the yeast is pretty cleared up, the skin is just irritated. I've had it for so long they've both ruled out the common things like soap or certain types of pants.
I am just wondering because it definitly isn't just a skin infection. I still get yeast infections with my period each month. The intensity of the symptoms varies, but something is always there. I may not have the yucky discharge but I am always swollen and red and itchy. Do you think this skin biopsy would help? Has anyone gottan one before?
