Couldn't find what you looking for?

TRY OUR SEARCH!

Ugh I've had so many problems recently down there!

 

It started as redness and itching then a horrible red swelling-I went to the STD clinic yesterday absolutely terrified and the Dr assured me it was not warts and not herpes-she said she'll test for herpes just in case but as she was doing the test she said 'this is a spot,if it comes back as herpes i'll be VERY surprised, it really doesn't look like it at all, this is just for your piece of mind'. She seemed very sure I was okay for that. She examined me and did a smear, had a proper look at my vulva and said I was being silly, this is just a spot and not to worry at all.

 

I stupidly had sex this morning (my boyfriend and I have been together 2 years).

 

Today it's worse, it's horribly angry looking, red and swollen and sore. I've put on antiseptic cream-I'm relieved it's not an STD but at the same time, what on earth is it-if it's just a spot, it's bacterial-I shave so I guess I could have caused it, hurt my skin, it's in a dodgy area right at the top of my slit so it's enclosed and that area is all warm and enclosed I suppose so it'll heal slower than a spot anywhere else :(

What can I do to help it heal faster and stop the infection spreading? I'm so scared :( Anybody else had anything like this?

I can't work either because I feel so disgusting and horrible, I'm feeling really depressed and monged out on the sofa today :(

No this is a different one! It just appeared -I had soreness and red skin and though I'd just shaved too close to the skin. I've been to the Doctors now and he says it's probably a blocked gland that's caused a boil and given me antibiotics :( I went to STD clinic yesterday (precautionary, I really don't think I've got any STDs and she said I didn't have warts for certain (which I was talking about on the other post you kindly replied to me on ) and that she's pretty certain this isn't herpes-she told me it was just a spot and to leave it alone and it would disappear like any other spot would-but today I was so worried that I'd end up with some horrible infection that I went to the Dr and got antibiotics today :( and signed off work!lol

If you would like to draw it out faster put a hot as you can bare face cloth on it and it should help draw it out :-)
I bet the antibiotics was amoxicillin?
They will take about 3 days to get into your system and start working in the mean time try and keep the area uncovered so nothing rubs it :-)

Thanks for all your help. I'm SO upset. It looks awful :( just want it to go so badly :(
I've had similar things before, from shaving. I think I'm going to look into laser hair removal when It's better. My skin just isn't cut out for shaving :(
flucloxacillin is the antibiotic!I'm terrified it's not going to work. I've had it for similar things before and it has done, though. Fingers crossed :(

I have the most patient, understanding boyfriend in the whole world!

Expensive maybe but at the moment I'd re-mortgage my house and sell my car to get rid of this!!

Yes he does-he says I'm making it worse by keeping looking at it and washing it and anti-septic creams, and making myself worse being so stressed and upset over it! My life's on hold though! I love running and I can't, and I can't work ;(

Well do just as if says then because he is right with what he says.
Worrying won't make it better it will only make it worse.
