2 weeks ago my Doctor diagnose me with a UTI (Urinary Tract Infection), im an 18 Year old Female, Before the Doctors diagnose me i had bad Lower back/Kidney Pain, I felt like i had to go to the toilet every 5 mins but couldnt do anything. Other then that, i also have a family history in this Infection (UTI). After a blood test and a visit to the Radiology (Ultrasound) and a trip to the emergency dep at the local Hospital they sent me home with a 6day cycle 'Canesten' Cream, which you apply inside the vigina once a day, for 6 days. They also prescribed me with "Doxycycline" Tables, Also known as "Monohydrate" They are 100mg, mean't to be taken twise a day with food for 14 days. After 2 days of taking these tables, i started to feel so sick and light headed. I have realised that these tablets are the reason as to why i am feeling like this. As they are such a strong pill and i am only a very small girl, i have cut down to just one tablet a day - still feel light headed after i take it, but i can feel my Kidneys getting better (UTI). I am now on day 4 of 6 of the Canesten Cream, and My vigianal area started to get realy itchy and a burning sensation. - Not just any itchyness, but an extremly itchy that it got to the point where i couldnt go to work. I had a really smelly white-yellow discharge to, and very moist. I woke up yesterday to a really heavely swollen vigina flaps, and my flags were as hard as rock!. I mean they weren't just over sized and bloated, they were huge! I could not walk, i could not sit down, i couldnt even close my legs because my viginal area was so swollen, and still at this point itchy.
After a day of just having cold showers every 2 hours still no decresed in size. This has never happen to me before, at first i just thought this was an reaction to the canesten cream, but if it was, it would of happen right away of using the cream, and i have used this cream in the past. So i just sat around the house for the day, trying not to walk or move to make it any worse, last night it was still itchy but this morning i woke up and my viginal area was fine? It was normal size, it felt like and looked like a ballon that had been up for so long and then let down - wrinkled and deflated- but the itchyness was gorn and was normal size. I had made the next avai appointment with my Doctor, but it isnt for another 3 days yet. I cant show him what my viginal area was like as it is deflated now, how will he understand me? Was this a reaction to the Cream or really strong antibiotics? Did it have anything to do with the UTI? please help, i would really love some answers if anyone ealse out there as experienced the same thing, or know of anything like this? Thank you.
