    Extremely painful Yeast Infection sores

    Iím on day two of an incredibly painful yeast infection. I think it was caused by some antibiotics I was taking for a week for a UTI. On the last day of my antibiotics my vulva started to feel irritated and itchy, and that night I noticed ALOT of white chunky discharge. I went right to Walmart and got Monistat 3 day and inserted one ovule that night.

    The next day my symptoms got worse. It wasnít just itching or burning it was major pain and tenderness. I was all swollen down there and had difficulty sitting down. I also started to develop fever like symptoms. Aches, chills, that awful trembly feeling, and my lymph nodes in my neck hurt were really tender.

    I looked at myself that night and noticed some sores on my labia and that at the base of my vaginal opening the skin was very dark purple and swolllen rigid.

    Iíve still got one day of monistat left but the pain from these sores is unbearable. I tried using the anti itch cream that came with the monistat but it hurts too and I donít think itís supposed to be used on open wounds.

    Does anyone have any experience with this? Any ideas what I could apply to the open sores to help them heal faster or ease the pain. They hurt so bad and I have to work today and I just feel like Iím going to break down crying every second.

    I would head straight to an urgent care. When taking an antibiotic always take a probiotic . Don't take it with the antibiotic of course take about four hours after . Or several hours in between doses .

    Go to your doctor or a walk in clinic. Take the day off work (or half day) to do it when your symptoms are that extreme. It may be something other then a simple yeast infection and the monistat could be making things worse.

    It is always good to take a good probiotic daily for good health anyway.

    Yes probiotics are good for gut health.
    The fact that she has a fever indicates that what she is suffering from is some sort of infection rather then a simple yeast infection. To be honest, Herpes came to mind and if that is the case (?) she'll do well to be on an antiviral med.

    I also started to develop fever like symptoms. Aches, chills, that awful trembly feeling, and my lymph nodes in my neck hurt were really tender.

    Yes. I would go to an urgent care because that doesnít sound like your plain old ordinary yeast infection .

    This is likely something more than a simple yeast infection, OP. I am not a medical professional by any stretch, but I have to admit that like another poster, I wonder if this is a herpes outbreak.

    Please do get to a doctor or clinic as soon as you can.

    YUp. the probiotic is key. As Seraphim, mentioned, never take the probiotic with the meds. Wait three to four hours after taking your meds.

    There is new news on probiotics. Not recommended for daily intake.
