Hello. Welcome to ask the doctor.
I understand your concern.
It seems that you are suffering from viral infection that is herpes along with fungal infection genitalia.
Candidiasis that is fungal infection of the skin is acquired more commonly during menstruation.
In such cases, I advise my patients to get Blood sugar levels done.
Keep the area clean and dry.
I prefer to give oral antifungals like fluconazole and topical clotrimazole cream.
Visit your doctor so that he can examine you and give you a prescription.
You can share my opinion with him.
I hope it helps.
