If you been following my posts my butt and my vagina have been burning for 3 weeks. I have a fissure so I thought this was the problem. I tried every cream and taking tylenol barely touched the pain, sitting a hot bath really only worked. I did that today at 4am it was burning so bad. I took two Zantac yesterday and this morning I took a diflucan (for yeast infection) and within a hour i was fine, no burning. What do you think stopped the burning? The blood has slowed down took, but bms are still there.

Its hard to say what helped. If it started again you could try 1 thing each time to rule out it working or not. I know it wouldn't be the most comfortable thing to do but it could help you in the long run. Ive had a couple fissures myself and I definately know how uncomfortable they can be. Good Luck!

I suspect you have a yeast infection and the Diflucan helped. Follow through with the treatment and be sure you keep the area clean and dry. Some people are helped by using an aniti-fungal powder such as Lotrimin to maintain dryness and prevent yeast growth.

One time I had a burning vagina, turned out that I had a yeast infection and a bladder infection at the same time, go to the doc and get it checked out.

My bum is broken....there's a big crack down the middle of it! LOL :)
