Yes. I went to the gynecologist seeking relief. He prescribed fluconazole first, saying it was a yeast infection, but I developed even worse burning symptoms along with swollen, itchy & irritated eyes. Then another doctor in the same practice said it was bacterial & prescribed clindamycin which she fortunately told be to use only on the outside & not as a suppository until I knew how I would react to it. I developed swelling of the outer area along with the burning. The doctors had nothing else to offer except saying do not use any washes, creams, etc., that might further irritate the area. After 2 weeks of agony the burning eased off. Then I went to the opthamologist for relief of the swollen & itchy eyes, he gave me Ilevro which I did not take. On the drug interaction tab, I discovered that neither fluconazole, clindamycin nor Ilevro (an NSAID) should have been prescribed to me while taking Xarelto. The pharmacist did not catch this either. The vaginal burning persists & I still have eyes that are irritated & sometimes swell. My experience is that the gynecologists do not know how to treat the burning sensation & apparently have not been made aware that vaginal burning is a side effect of the Xarelto.
