question about something bothering me down there..

hey everyone..


so a few days ago i was at the beach with my friend, and of course we were laying out getting some sun. It was a windy day and sand got everywhere. That same night that we had our mini sandstorm i couldn't sleep because i was itching and it hurt a little down there..i ended up sleeping with a washcloth between my legs lol..

The itching stopped..but now today it started up again..I put some hydrocortisone cream down there, and it helped..but is it possible that i could be getting a yeast infection? any answers would help! lol

Re: question about something bothering me down there..

I would imagine there's different triggers for everyone, but what jumped out at me was "bathing suit" and "slept with a washcloth between my legs."

Bathing suits used to always give me yeast infections -- not so much anymore. And sleeping with anything moist between my legs would absolutely give me one, even today. Even my doctors tells me the drier the better down there, particularly when I sleep.

So I don't know about sand, but I would say a bathing suit and lots of moisture over a period of hours in a dark area (between your legs) sounds to have the right ingredients for a healthy dose of yeast.

Hope it clears up for you quick

Re: question about something bothering me down there..

So glad you got everything worked out! If it's the Diflucan pill you were prescribed, that should kick in very quick, within a day or so.

Hope you get to feeling better real soon
