I took a 150mg pill of fluconazole Tuesday morning and I got prescribed some nystatin cream and it still itches down there. And the skin is inflamed and has bumps I guess from scratching. but the inflammation it has went down some during the first day when I took the pill. I’m suppose to take a second pill next Tuesday. This has been going on for about a week. The doctor said that it’s a possibility it could be herpes too because of how inflamed it was but I haven’t been sexually active in about two months.
Vaginal thrush is a common condition caused by a yeast infection (Candida albicans) in the vagina and surrounding area.
Fluconazole is an antifungal medicine used to treat vaginal candida. It is usually given as a single dose in uncomplicated cases. It may be given a week later to ensure complete eradication although this is not generally recommended unless your case is severe or recurrent. Fluconazole works by stopping the growth of Candida.
It usually starts to work within one day, but it may take 3 days for your symptoms to improve and up to 7 days for your symptoms to disappear.
Genital herpes is a common sexually transmitted disease caused by the virus called herpes simplex (HSV). Most people with the genital herpes virus don't have symptoms and are unaware they have it.
Generalised symptoms include:
itching or tingling, burning, or pain
painfulrred spots/sores that change to clear fluid-filled blisters
redness or a rash around the genital area
swelling of the genital area
pain while peeing
The main treatment for severe genital herpes is an antiviral drug. While this drug will help to reduce the number of outbreaks you may have, and speed up the healing process, it will not cure the virus.
