hello. I do NOT have sores on my perineum.....It is just red and sore. It does not hurt constantly. Just when I apply pressure, after me and my boyfriend do stuff, or itch it. When I itch it, it keeps itching. ONLY my perineum. When I touch the wrong spot, it stings, when I pee on it, it stings. It does not hurt when I pee, only when the pee touches it. It feels king of like raw. I do were things and shave most hair dwn there. But I am careful about not touching that area. I am not looking to go see a doctor I was just wondering if this is normal or not, and what it may be? What over the counter medicines can I use to help it? sometimes when it really bothering me, I use neosporine....Any other creams I should look at.
The antibacterial properties in Neosporin are very weak. They are meant for small cuts and scrapes, not larger areas. Don't try to treat a bacterial infection yourself, especially when you aren't sure if that is what you have.
Go get some over-the-counter yeast infection medication. If the problem persists after you are finished with the course of medication, go to your doctor.
I have the same problem and I went to see my normal family doctor and she says its HERPES!!! I freaked!! I looked into it online and what I see compared to the image results from google it is not the same I am going for a second opinion this week and a full blood work up I would recommend seeing your doctor and being put on an antiviral medication. So far that treatment is soothing mine.
ive only been having sex for about 2 years. ive gotten a few yeast infections in the past after having sex and 2 weeks ago i had sex for the first time in 3 months and my labia and perineum was swollen and itchy and i figured i just had a yeast infection again. i went to the doctor and they gave me pills that cure yeast infections more effectively than over the counter medication. ive finished taking the medicine but my perineum seems to still be sore and swollen and so raw i bled. im not really sure if i should wait it out to see if it heals or if theres still something wrong with me. but i wouldnt worry just yet about herpes because untreated yeast infections can sometimes have very similar symptoms as herpes if they arent cured right away...they can even lead to sores so before anyone worrys about having herpes it could just be a really bad yeast infection.
while this was a while ago, it may help anyone who has searched. Regarding Trixxxie, it sounds like a case of bacterial vaginosis. It tends to get worse immediately after sex. And it's very common.
I had it twice. Probably still do but am not going to go on antibiotics for it again. I keep it at a minimum by ..and I know this goes against modern "wisdom"... not using soap down there. Just water. It has improved things immensely. Doctor confirmed that it would help, since soap disrupts the skin creating a greater environment for bacteria.
