Frustrated over infection!

Last Friday I saw the Dr. and was dx'ed with Bacterial Vag and told if it didn't get better to come back. I went back today saw diff Dr. (og Dr. had no openings) and told him that it was still painful and I have also now vulva irritation and itching.

I was told to sit in a sitz bath and if it didn't get better to come back and get cultured. UMM I thought I HAD just come back.

Now what do I do? I am feeling dry flesh with pain and itching and some puffiness to the vulva area. I don't know if the BV is gone or not and I don't know if it morphed into a yeast infection because now I have to wait and see.

OMG it's embarassing enough to have to keep going back and this infection is getting really depressing. I know the way it feels a sitz bath isn't going to fix it so I guess I am back to self care. I don't know what to do.

Re: Frustrated over infection!

Burning and itching got worse. I tried a yeast otc cream today and I'm trying to get it OFF now, skin folds are shiny red and painful burning. I might have to find a way to ice it later, it is red and HOT.
