Any advice from somebody that has encountered a similar expierence would be very helpful right now!! About the end of February I started getting an irritated feeling in my genital area. There was a cottage cheese sort of discharge and itchiness. It then just became itchy on the left of the labia. I have scratched the itchy area since the end of February and I have noticed 2 ulcer type of lesions that have appeared. No puss comes out of them they are just 2 flat lesions that appear as flat ulcers. I went for a pap smear and the doctor said that it did look a "little yeasty" and perscribed me a single yeast infection pill. She did say herpes could be a possibility because of the lesions. I strugged off the possibility of it being herpes because I have only had sex with one guy for the past 3 years. Was that a logical thought?

Has anybody else ever left a yeast infection go untreated causing irritability to result in a lesions/ulcers? And also, if she thought the case was a result of herpes, why would she prescribe a yeast pill? I am searching for another doctor to get a 2nd opinion but I would love to hear comments from anybody that can help!
