I've had burning pain in my genital area for 3 weeks now. The first week was excruciating, and I also had a sore throat. Sometimes the pain subsides a bit, and sometimes it gets worse. Over the past few days when it gets worse I think I'm seeing tiny white bumps, but I'm not sure. It looks like it could just be my hair follicles, since I shave everything down there. Everything down there looks a little red, but not inflamed.
I've had 2 nurse practitioners tell me they thought it was an external yeast infection, and one thought there was a chance it could be herpes. I've been putting anti-fungal cream on it, but I'm not sure if its helping. It seemed better the first few days I was using it, but yesterday and the day before the burning was strong.
Any advice would be appreciated, I've never been so stressed and scared.
