Hello doctor, I am a 23 years old female. I have been suffering from acute pain in vagina during urination. To get a medical aid, I went to my doctor about 3 days ago. After diagnosis, she told that it was yeast infection and nothing more to worry. She prescribed some medicines and sent me back to my home. After taking the prescribed medication, the itching and burning sensation was suppressed and to my surprise, the condition lasted for just 5 hours or so. Later, I found that Ibupropfen also helped in soothing out the situation. But that night, I was woken up by severe pain and burning sensation again and I was taken to the emergency care. After running out some tests or so, they found that there is some urinary tract infection. After sometime, the burning sensation and some of the pain went away. But adding to my fear, I got a call from the hospital saying that in the test results, it was found that I am tested positive for genital herpes and what I had was just symptoms of herpes. I was prescribed to use Valacyclovir and after using it for a day, all symptoms of herpes were gone. But there was some swelling and discomfort remaining. So, to make things clear, I searched for genital herpes pictures and photos of herpes infections. But I don’t think that herpes symptoms will go away as soon as it happened to me. Please help me how I can rule out the possibility of any other infection or disease? Is it due to yeast infection as suspected before? Thanks for your time.
