For the past month, I was suffering from itching, burning, and irritation in the vaginal area. I've had reoccuring yeast infections in the past year, but nothng like this. One week, it was burning, next week was itching, and sore with red irritation. I was given so many things to treat yeast while nothing worked. I finally saw my gynocolgist and she gave me boric acid suppositories to use for a month! I have to take one 600 mg suppository vaginally for a month.
My gyno stated that it might be correlated to the UC. I just got off the phone with the nurse practioner and she stated that women with UC usually have a higher PH level in their bodies. Is this true? Are there any other female UC suffers out there with this problem? If so, what are you or have done about this problem? Its so frustrating!
Currently, I am getting Remicade infusions every 8 weeks. I have to skip this month's infusion due to the yeast infection. I also take 6 Colazal pills a day, 50 mg of 6-Mp, and Fiorcet for my headaches. I also take Canasa 1,000 mg suppositories when necessary.
Any advice or information would be beneficial. Thanks! :)
