An itchy, burning painful genital rash with white discharge, diagnosed as yeast(candida). started after course of oral antibiotic, But : 6 oral tabs over two weeks (fluconazole) and topical clotrimazole shows no improvement, and in fact MUCH worse. Extreme pain and Dysuria. Stable monogamous relationship. (partner has history of oral HSV not active). Is diagnosis correct. \? Swabs so far Neg. Could this be contact dermatitis to the topical Rx. Could this be HSV, even tho no Obvious blisters?

Hiya,
You might want to visit our Women's Health Community and ask your question there, but ultimately I think you should call your doctor and ask for testing or just a reassurance that this is a yeast infection and only that. If your doc did diagnose this as yeast then perhaps you should trust in that, but if you are not sure call the docs office and talk to the doc to be sure. You'll feel better knowing what it is.
