How do I ease pain from vaginal blisters caused by vulvitis?


I have vulvitis from an allergic reaction. I've gotten it a few times and it is super painful. I get blisters and the skin gets raw. The doctor gives me stuff to treat, but hasn't given me anything to ease the pain. It burns horribly when I urinate. The pain is so bad it brings me to tears. Has anyone else had this problem? Any ideas how to ease the pain and burning?
----------

Risquidamol gel (not sure on the spelling)for the blisters to numb, drink bi-carb if you can stomach it or potassium citrate preparation from chemist to take the acidity out of your pee, try frozen peas(or similar)on the affected area wrapped in a towel to ease pain, take ibuprofen now &every 4 hours, then paracetamol in 2 hours&every 4 hours so you have pain relief every 2 hours. Ibuprofen works on swelling&nerve endings¶cetamol works on the pain censors in the brain. Maybe put a LITTLE salt in your bath to help the blisers heal.Feel better soon xx  (+ info)

How can I get rid of vulvitis caused by allergic reaction?


I don't have health insurance so I can't go to the doctor. I've had this 2 times before and I went to the doctor both times, so I know what it is. I just can't get rid of it, but I can't afford to go to the doctor this time. How can I get rid of this? I've tried hydrocortisone cream and it got a little better at first but since it hasn't gotten any better.

Go to Planned Parenthood - they are free or on a as you can afford scale. Or, call up the pharmacy and ask for a refill on the prescripion you got before, maybe your doctor will refill it without seeing you since you've had this twice before.  (+ info)

Does Vulvitis heal on it's own with no medication?


Can vulvitis heal without medication ? I haven't been to the doctor yet, but by the symptoms I can tell, that I have vulvitis, but I don't want to see the doctor if it can heal without medication. Or perhaps there is some kind of treatment, which does not require a doctors prescription?
----------

Of course.If the reason is eliminated lesion will disappear.  (+ info)

Do Nystatin and Triamcinolone Acetonide Ointment treat vulvitis?


My vulva always have this tingling feeling sometimes it itches??? Would this ointment work? and what's wrong with my vulva??SERIOUS ANSWERS!
----------

Hello,

It depends on what is the matter. Nystatin is used to treat Thrush, (Monilial or yeast infection), and Triamcinoline is a strong steroid cream, with a strength about equivalent to Betnovate. Steroid creams are used to treat inflamed skin from any cause. So this might help, and application for a short time would do no harm, in my opinion.

It's not at all an easy thing, to discuss such intimate problems on the internet. However, of course the vulva is a composite structure anatomically, there are the minor lips and the major lips, the introitus, the urethra, all that. We don't know what is the worst affected in your case.

It would make a difference if you had any sort of vaginal discharge, because if you did, that might be irritating the vulva.

It would make a difference if you had any waterwork symptoms, for a similar reason.

The same for if you have any other skin problems, - some ordinary skin problems can also affect the vulva.

We don't know how old you are, and that does make a difference because the vulva tends to get different problems as you get older.

Perhaps if we had a few more details, it might help, but it might also be a good idea for a doctor or Gynaecologist to have a look?

I hope this is of some help.

Best wishes,

is herpes and vulvitis the same thing?


regarding STD's the symptoms are the same can you have one and be told it is the other. are they the same or different?
Will treatment for one help with the other? Or do they have different treament?
----------

They are not the same thing.

Vulvitis is a condition of inflammation of the vulva of a female. It may be caused by or related to dermatitis, eczema, infection by bacteria, viruses, or fungi, or an allergic reaction. It's not an STD.

Genital herpes is a sexually transmitted disease (STD) caused by the herpes simplex viruses type 1 (HSV-1) and type 2 (HSV-2). Most genital herpes is caused by HSV-2. Most individuals have no or only minimal signs or symptoms from HSV-1 or HSV-2 infection. When signs do occur, they typically appear as one or more blisters on or around the genitals or rectum. The blisters break, leaving tender ulcers (sores) that may take two to four weeks to heal the first time they occur. Typically, another outbreak can appear weeks or months after the first, but it almost always is less severe and shorter than the first outbreak. Although the infection can stay in the body indefinitely, the number of outbreaks tends to decrease over a period of years.

They have different treatments. One has no effect on the other.  (+ info)

What could fluid or hemorrhages in the pelvic area mean?


my mom has been having a rough time.the doctors diagnosed her with vulvadynia and vulvitis, and she has severe nerve pain in her pudendal nerve. this has been going on for about 8 months? and she got an MRI done the other day and the doctor just said he found there could be fluid or hemorrages in the pelvic area. he sent it to the gynecologist for them to look at. what could this mean? tell me EVERYTHING please.im really worried.
----------

This is a tough question and it sounds like you're really worried. Hopefully you and your mother can get some better answers from the gynecologist. Meanwhile here is some basic information:

Vulvadynia is often characterized by burning discomfort, itching, throbbing, or tenderness of the vulva - sometimes in the labia, sometimes around the opening of the vagina, sometimes affecting the vestibular glands - which may be experienced either as diffused irritation or as specific painful spots. The group of symptoms is classified by many names, partly because of the ways in which it may present or respond to treatment: vulvar pain syndrome, focal vulvitis, vestibular adenitis, vulvodynia, vulvar vestibulitis, or simply vestibulitis.

Vulvitis

Vulvitis is simply an inflammation of the vulva, the soft folds of skin outside the vagina. This is not a condition but rather a symptom that results from a host of diseases, infections, injuries, allergies, and other irritants. Diagnosing and treating this condition can be frustrating because it is often difficult to determine the specific cause of the irritation.

http://www.healthsystem.virginia.edu/uvahealth/peds_growth/vvts.cfm

The pudendal nerve is a sensory, autonomic, and motor nerve that carries signals to and from the genitals, anal area, and urethra. There are slight differences in the nerve branches for each person but typically there are three branches of the nerve on each side of the body; a rectal branch, a perineal branch and a clitoral/penile branch. There is ongoing research into the exact areas innervated by the pudendal nerve. PN occurs when the nerve or one of its branches becomes damaged, inflamed, or entrapped.

As far as the fluid or hemorrhages- I can't answer that question and really recommend that you ask a medical professional. I hope that you and your mom get the information and help that you need.  (+ info)

I have a bad case of vulvitis...what should I do?


My outer labia are red and inflamed. The crevice between my inner and outer labia is producing white mold. It burns and itches. Its very uncomfortable. What should I do to stop this madness without taking any antibiotics or seeing a doctor?
----------

•Baths containing soothing compounds such as Aveeno baths or comfrey tea baths.


•Stopping the use of any products that may be a contributing factor.


•The vulva should be kept clean, dry, and cool. Always remember to wipe from front to back.


•Hot boric acid compresses.


•Cold compresses filled with plain yogurt or cottage cheese help ease itching and irritation.


•Calamine lotion.


•Using sterile, non-irritating personal lubricants such as K-Y Jelly, or Astroglide during sexual activity.


•Learning to reduce stress.


•Eating an adequate and nutritious diet.


•Making sure you get enough sleep at night.  (+ info)
