Vaginal Yeast Infection, discharge, cuts

Edited , 3 users are following.

imageIve been having some soreness, itching and burning around my vagina and on the general vulva region. I've also been feeling really really dry down there. Today I also noticed white thick clumpy discharge which I'm pretty sure is a yeast infection. I also noticed cuts near my labia. Could this be because of the yeast infection or is it something else? Could it be herpes? I did engage in some rough sexual activity (only fingers and dildo) recently so could be be a friction burn? Attaching photos! Thank you so much.

PS I get vaginal yeast infections over and over. I usually treat it with local application of coconut oil and it resolves on it's own. Any tips?

    since you have yeast often you can have an overgrowth of a certain fungus that naturally lives in the vagina, you should talk to a doc about that.

    and the cuts (and also tears) is from sexual activity and dryness in a combo, add some lubricant while having your fun time

      Hello, thank you so much for your reply!

      I'm usually not so dry. I've only been dry for a few days never happened before. I'm unfortunately not in a position to visit my doctor right now. but the infection does seem to be getting better!

      I read somewhere online that hsv 2 can also look like paper cuts which really got me worried. I've been meaning go get tested and hopefully I will he able to soon!

      its been four to five days since the cuts appeared. there is a chance that i might have been exposed to hsv 1 or 2 or both at some point. Just hoping for the best 🤞

      Thanks!

      i still say it could be thrush they could also have thrush symptoms. herpes can be in paper cut form but i have had these exact ones in bad cases of thrush, it doesnt seem ypical of herpes altho its possible. have u had aches, sore throat or legs, temperature etc? a first outbreak os usually the worst and accompanied with these symptoms and would feel painful. r the cuts painful to touch?

      Oh, okay. I have had some very mild aches in my thighs but I also started exercising recently. Maybe a bit of a sore throat too but thats probably because of the weather here everyone is catching colds. It is painful to touch but not too bad. its very very itchy and burns when I pee. Its much better today though.

      The itching and pain was much worse two to three days back. I wasn't able to sleep properly even. Today the cuts look like theyve healed more too and less itching. Im really dry down there though which is unusual for me
