I have had a persistent burning in and around my vagina for the last three months. It is accompanied by a clear watery discharge, at times can be stretchy, but its ALOT. I can see small bubbles in it at times. It is on going burning sensation and it does not stop.
My obgyn has done two cultures and they both came back positive for Strep B. I have head STD checks and urinalysis they are all normal. Hes given me a round of clindamycin and two rounds of flagyl. He told me to use Domboro soultion on a wash cloth to use as a compress, to ease the burning. None of this has helped one bit. Im now on day 7 out of day 14 of boric acid suppositories, it has not helped at all.
Im so frustrated and I dont know what to do anymore? I cant deal with this. Im starting to think someting is seriously wrong with me, why is my immune system not fighting this??
Welcome to ehealthforum,
To calm down the burning sensation, you can consider taking Sitz bath. Be regular with treatment prescribed. Drink plenty of water. Avoid carbonated and caffeinated beverages. Avoid vaginal douching, use of harsh soap or perfumes in the area (vagina has its own mechanism of cleaning itself and use of these products harms the normal bacteria of vagina and it becomes susceptible to infection). Use loose cotton undergarments and avoid tight fitting clothes. If you are sexually active, get your partner also treated simultaneously to prevent chances of re-infection and avoid having unprotected intercourse while both of you are on treatment course.
