Hi everyone,
I'm soooo glad I found you guys! I just had my first OB a week before Christmas and boy was it a doozie! Talk about wicked painful. I had 3 kids and actually tore badly with one and that hurt less than this! My doc did prescribe Valtrex, Zovirax, Lidocaine and even vicodin for the pain it was so bad believe it or not (Stupid me thought I had the king of all yeast infections!).
Anyways, I wanted to ask if any you had any problems with itching? I haven't had any lesions for almost two weeks but have major problems with insane itching down there. I thought it was a yeast infection so I've done two doses of monistat per my doc but have had no relief. The itching is starting to spread now too. I just want to be sure I'm just not getting nutty or if this is just part of the healing process.
Oh, I'm not sure which one I have. I was married for 20 years to my high school sweetheart and he divorced me this past may because I had Cancer and he couldn't handle it. Well I hadn't been with anyone but him and lo and behold I break out with this. My bloodwork came back negative too. So my doc thinks that it was laying there dormant and popped out because of the stress and my immune system. Killer huh?! My ex did used to get cold sores on the inside of his mouth all the time so I suspect I have 1.
Anyways, I look foward to getting to know you all.
