CAN AN FEMALE HAVE A JOCK ITCH?
I, too, was just diagnosed with female jock itch. I had extreme itching right near the clitoris, very similar to what a yeast infection feels like, but without any of the normal discharge that accompanies a yeast infection. The mucous membrane was peeling.
I went to an urgent care and the MD did a wet prep and everything came back normal. He put me on Flagil, which I decided not to take. Why be on an antibiotic if there was no indication of bacterial vaginosis? I went another 2 weeks with a red, swollen genital area. It began to look flaky and completely abnormal. I went to my general practioner and he took one look and told me what it was. He said that it will take about 3 weeks to clear up completely. I'm currently on Lamisil Defense.
I had the same thing except the itching was on the outside of the lips where the hair is. I used over the counter creams and even thought it might be a yeast infection,but everything i used didnt work. After persistant itching and scratching I finally went to the doctor. The gynocologist didnt know what it was. I went to urgent care and like you they perscribed me clotrimazole betamethasone dipropionate cream. Instant relief! I found a website the other day where you can order the cream online. Its called Canadian Neighbor Pharmacy and i am waiting for it to arrive as I write this. I am down to l the last drop in the tube the dr. prescribed me and in a panic in case the horrible itching comes back again.I dont have insurance so when i found that i could order the cream online I was verry happy. Hopefully I get it.lol. Hopefully this information will help others in the same situation. Good luck!
I was wondering if your medicine came and is the Canadian Pharmacy, legitimate? I went to the Dr. about 2 years ago for this and I was so relieved to finally get a real diagnosis but w/o insurance getting more of the cream that helps has been difficult. Please let me know.
