Vaginal Rash is Nothing to Laugh About

Aug 17, 2007
A vaginal rash is nothing to laugh about and it can at the best of times be an irritant and at the worst of times, it can be quite painful. Many women suffer from vaginal rash and it can come in the guise of many different conditions such as yeast infections, herpes, genital warts, and trichomoniasis.

Although something like yeast infection isn't all that serious, if you have a vaginal rash due to herpes or even genital warts it can be the precursor to some other condition. And since you don't know this for certain until you have a proper medical examination, this should be the first thing on your list of things to do, along with an abstinence from sexual intercourse.

To many people this might seem difficult but if your vaginal rash is severe, you will be only too glad to abstain until you become healthier as you can experience some pain during sexual intercourse.

There's also the chance that you might pass your infection on to your partner through sexual intercourse. And although the use of protection such as a condom is recommended, there's still a good chance that it might not be enough and that the infection will be passed on.

Another thing that you might want to be aware of if you have a vaginal rash is that you might experience pain or burning when urinating, have an intense itching sensation, and in the case of yeast infection you might even have some vaginal discharge.

There's also the possibility that your vaginal area will become sore and tender, and in some cases it can turn quite red and angry looking. These are all symptoms of vaginal rash and depending on each person they could experience all, only one or some, or even none of the symptoms. In some cases there will also be additional symptoms present for with a vaginal rash.

There are treatments available for vaginal rash and they range from the prescription to over-the-counter to herbal or home remedies. What treatment you take depends to a large amount on your preference, the exact nature of your vaginal rash, your overall health, and the recommendations from your doctor.

Also, if you don't get your vaginal rash examined by medical personnel, and decide instead to treat it yourself with either over-the-counter medications or natural remedies, you should be aware that potential problems can arise.

The most serous of these problems is the fact that while you may treating a yeast infection or something similar, in reality your vaginal rash may be as a result of something else.

What this signifies is that your body will become used to the medication that you're using and when it comes time to use it for the necessary condition, the medication won't work. So if you suspect that you might have a vaginal rash consult your physician to get a correct diagnosis.
