  • Vaginal and anal burning

    I was one day away from finishing amoxicillin for intestinal inflammation and this burning came over my vaginal and anal area.  I am a stone former and my urine pH has been very low, so I thought that might be it.  There's no itching but my labia are swollen and it almost feels like a reaction...
