Milky white discharge with UTI, VAGISIL. HERPES?

Resolved Question:

I am in need of assistance. I recently came into contact with someone with herpes. I went to the emergency room 2 days later out of concern and was told I was fine as there were no lesions to be seen. I did however have a UTI. After UTI medication was taken symptoms (itch,burn) receded. I soon noticed a milky white discharge and assumed I had a yeast infection. My period came and seemed symptoms cleared until a day later the discharge was back. I took a monistat 1 and and vagisil.... Vagisil burned like no other and soon my skin was drying and peeling all over and it was red. Stopped using it. The monistat I noticed I had abdominal pain afterwards and slight bleeding which was bright red. (I apologize for bein so detailed) anyway I noticed I had small cuts in the opening of my vagina.... One I had accidentally created myself from stretching too hard (I have pictures) I am wondering if I have possibly contacted herpes and it's coming up as other possible infections? (Between my Uti discovery and this incident it's been about a month)

Thanks for posting your query at

I checked the pictures and herpes could be a possibility. These are erosions which are closely grouped together.

Usually a history of fluid filled blisters in clusters is given by the patient which is absent in your case, however looking at the erosions, herpes is a possibility.

It would be best to visit your doctor who can re examine you and give you a course of valacyclovir.

Application of mupirocin cream will be helpful. It will provide soothing effect.

Please let me know if you have any queries.

Take care

After recieving your response I completely cleared of any and all symptoms i previously mentioned. The cuts ( one caused by me and the other im still unsure of) have healed and no it never happened. I am however in the process of making an appointment with my doctor. Now I am unsure of how long a herpes episode lasts without medication and if it would clear up after taking medications for yeast infection. is that possible? I just want to be clear when i do see my doctor.


Thanks for your reply.

Herpes can clear up on its own without
medication. But it wouldn't clear after taking yeast medications.
