Bad yeast infection? Please help me.

Edited , 2 users are following.


I'm hoping someone can help. i had protected sex with a new partner a couple of weeks ago. the day after, i got my period. on day 5 or 6 of my period, i started itching and burning, not unusual for me with using pads.

9 days after we initially had sex, so maybe 3 or 4 days after itching started, we had a lot of vigorous sex. then two days later, same again.

my instinct is saying that having so much sex while having thrush has made the thrush worse, irritated my skin etc. the patch in the picture is unbearable to touch and stings like mad when i wee. there is a constant itch/sting. its directly below my clitoris, and kind of sticks together in the day meaning that it hurts like hell when i open my legs.

imagein addition, the small patches pictured appeared on one of my labia. researching sex during thrush and having had a telephone consultation with a sexual health nurse, I'm working on the basis that this is due to lots of sex, when my skin was already irritated, but i am worried about the possibility of herpes with having a new partner, although he's never had symptoms, and we used a condom. image

      thanks for replying. it's kind of like an ulcer i guess, but more like almost a coating over my skin. it doesn't look like it's filled with anything. reminds me a bit maybe of athlete's foot and that coupled with the fact that it's right in a fold is making me think it's fungal but I'm so anxious with having the other spots too. image

    has a doctor seen it and have u had any tests run? only way to know is go and get a thrush test if thrush is present take treatment see if it clears up if it does see if reoccurs. could be either honestly, you will be fine no matter the outcome. go to the doctors for sure
