Can bv/yeast infections trigger outbreaks?

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

first time poster, long time lurker!

So I got diagnosed with hsv2 in October 2018 and since then i've been getting an outbreak every month, right before my period. The outbreaks have been getting less and less severe each time so drs decided not to put me on medication but then recently i got diagnosed with bacterial vaginosis and had to take a bunch of antibiotics for that (metrondiazole).

The next day i had a massive outbreak, just like my primary one. Excruciating pain! Are the two linked? Can bv or thrush cause outbreaks?

ive got a drs appointment tomorrow but just want to see if any of you ladies have ever experienced an outbreak because of thrush or BV.

Hi,

 

during my my first outbreak I thought I had a very bad yeast infection because i had unbearable itching and was swollen down below which I associated with thrush.

 

Now a year later, I’ve got the same thrush like symptoms but I’ve taken over the counter medication for it and nothing has helped. Straight after I received another OB.

 

2 weeks later the same painful itching sensation is back and it is infuriatingly itchy. Again, same time small bumps are starting to appear. I feel like the thrush is a symptom of the herpes outbreak but I could be wrong. Going to the doctors soon to get further information.

 

hope you find out if they’re related too?

      literally cold sores just make my whole mouth area numb and in pain, especially when i eat food or take a shower. it's super hard too when you are trying not to break open the scab but daily activities tend to make it worse. luckily, i don't get headaches or anything so bless your souls, just a lil runny nose and lots of pain.   i have found some natural remedies/OTCs ease the pain. ice for example always makes it feel more numb, but i have to wait until the scab isn't super delicate.   i made a parody to 7rings by ariana grande destigmatizing cold sores-- give it a chance:) and if you like it, repost with the hashtag #realslimsorechallenge with your own tips to shorten coldsores everywhere! they friggin suck!!!!! we gotta be here for eachother:)
