I just finished a extensive course of antibiotics after having
Patient :I just finished a extensive course of antibiotics after having a tooth pulled and antibiotics for acne. After a few weeks my soap started giving me a itchy labia majora. I stopped using it two weeks ago, but the area between my majora and perrenial is still itchy sometimes but acv helps. The entire time I had a thick clear discharge, no smell, no vesicles or bumps. Was it the soap?
Thanks for your query.
I have read your history and understood your concerns. You problems may not be due to soap alone.
History of taking extensive courses of antibiotics makes me think of changing the normal bacterial flora of the vulvo-vaginal area. This can allow the opportunistic bacteria to grow and act pathologically, giving the symptoms of thick clear discharge and itching between majora and perineal area.
Soap had chemical action on the area giving you itchy Labia majora and the symptoms are persisting in spite of stopping the soap application. ACV itself can cause irritaion, you may please dilute it more.
I would advise you the following:
Continue not using soap.
ACV may be diluted more.
Do not use tight undergarments.
It would be wise to consult a Gynecologist for clinical evaluation, actual physical examination as this alone gives the exact clinical picture and to get an appropriate treatment.
I hope this answer helps you to get a proper diagnosis, and get a proper further treatment. Please feel free to ask for more if you feel there is a gap of communication.
