Redness in the perineal area?

I went to an OB-GYN last Thursday to consult about my condition. Last week I itch more than usual and have been noticing white discharges. She checked my vagina afterwards and said the discharges i have is not like a cottage cheese appearance and can't be a yeast infection. And then she prescribed me Clindamycin for 150mg. She also prescribed me an antihistamine that I can use if I feel like I need to itch really hard and can be taken once a day. and also advised me to use GynePro for washing my perineal area. i checked my perineal area tonight and I don't see white discharges anymore. It's just that I think my perineal area is still red.

She advised me to use GynePro after taking a bath. But I think I abused using it? I use it in the morning and before sleeping.

have you tried calmoseptine I used it a while back when I had redness and irritation in my pernial area, I had this for about three months and it would not go away. my doctor suggested using it and it has helped so much it cools the area and keeps it dry. but, first talk to your doc about using it. you can buy it at walgreens for 10.00 a tube.its great stuff.

Hi Anon

You may not be giving the medication enough time to work, since it has only been a few days. Since it's partly clearing up, give it more time.

You are supposed to use the wash once a day so stop using it twice a day. This can cause irritation. And don't use it for more than two weeks.

I hope this clears up for you quickly!
