    Dear vic,

    If you didn't mention your recent diagnosis of HSV-1 genital herpes, I would have assumed that an itchy, sore, red vagina with discharge would likely indicate thrush. Is this possible??

    I ask because unlike HSV-2, genital herpes caused by HSV-1 is NOT typically associated with recurrences. Unless you can see ulcers and a rash suggestive of an outbreak of herpes, I think it's worth trying some thrush treatment (pessaries and cream) first.
