Signs, Symptoms, and Diagnosis Column written by: I really cannot do it justice in a short essay, but I think it deserves some mention, if only to give the pet owner some understanding as to the difficulties involved when a veterinarian is faced with a case of possible liver failure. If you asked ten people on the street what they knew about "liver", I would bet that the only consistent answer you would get is that it tastes really bad unless the cook really knows his stuff.
At the age of about 19 I broke out in a bunch of lesions in my vaginal area.
They were raised and hurt like crazy. I could barely walk or go to the bathroom. Wearing pants was unbearable also. I went to planned parenthood Urinary system essay was told it was herpes. Naturally I freaked out.
I went to two other gynecologists for other opinions. One did a biopsy from what I remember and both came back negative for herpes. One of them said it was an allergic reaction but he couldn't say from what and I forget what the other one said, but I was just happy that Urinary system essay wasn't an STD.
Fast forward 22 years and at the age of 41 while traveling for work I had some vaginal discomfort and after checking in the mirror I noticed I had what looked like a white head pimple on the inner part of my vaginal lip. It was extremely painful to pee. I checked on the sore 8 hours later and saw that it had grown to about the size of a pencil eraser and was pure white, like it had a pus covering over it.
The next afternoon I had checked on it again and it had turned into what looked like a canker sore and was about the same size. A day later it was gone. This was 2 years ago and in the past 2 years I have experienced about 8 of these episodes and they are all basically the same.
I start to feel an itch or discomfort in my vaginal area, I check the area, it starts out as small white head looking pimples most times I have one of them but have had 3 at the most they grow in size to about the size of pencil erasers, they turn white at first, then lose the white color and look raw and exactly like mouth ulcers which I have suffered from my whole life and then go away usually they last from 3 to 7 days.
It is very frustrating that the 3 gynecologists I've seen said they have no idea what it is. Unfortunately by the time I get an appointment the lesion has disappeared but I do have scarring at the site.
I currently have another breakout and this is the first time that they have turned red raw and are bleeding slightly. I have used peroxide but I think it only makes it feel temporarily better but makes them worse in the long run. I'm currently taking lysine for this latest bout as they seem to be lasting longer than usual.
I have been under a tremendous amount of stress in the last two years and have previously taken YAZ. Actually YAZ was prescribed for me by my gyno by mistake and after having heart palpitations while on it, I stopped using it and it was about the time I stopped using it that the outbreaks started.
Not sure if it's related or not. I just started a new job and can't take the time to see a doctor right now, but I am worried after reading some of the above posts that the lesions could get bigger or I could lose some of my skin. One other side note and I'm not sure if it's relevant, but as a teenager I had to give a urine sample when I was having abdominal pain and the ER doctor told me that I had an unusually high amount of bacteria in my urine, but didn't say it was a concern or anything.
Not sure if I could have a personal problem with bacteria. Although it is a scary situation and very painful, I am just grateful to know that I am not the only one suffering with this and am hopeful that more doctors will get experience with it so we can all get a proper diagnosis.
I am going to take a lot of the info I read on here and look into treatments and doctors for diagnosis. I had a reoccurrence with fever and flu symptoms and then the grey filled sores started. I used witch hazel after I used the toilet and just dabbed and rubbed as much of it in to the ulcers as I could.
It stings a little at first but it provides a lot of relief. I've noticed that it takes the "gray" out of the ulcers because of it's drying properties. At one stage the ulcers 9 in total were so bad l was hospitalized as l couldn't walk, sit or go to the toilet.
Over the years l went to a multitude of doctors and Gyno's, none helped me at all, one doctor even me told to just keep smothering Vaseline on my vag and one Gyno treated me like a complete idiot and told me that if l don't use soaps, deodorant and wear cotton underwear that it will all go away in it's own good time and won't come back again sure and pigs can fly.
I was in so much pain that l would stand in the shower with the water running on me so that l could pee and even then l was in so much pain l would virtually be screaming in agony with the pain. So eventually l did my own research on my problem via the Internet and guess what l found out my body can't tolerate SUGAR!!!!!
Now step 2 when purchasing food from the supermarket I developed these ulcers the gyn likes to call them lesions on a Mlonday out of the blue. I was given Valtrex is case it was herpes as I know it is not. Then a few days later being today I wake up with excruitiating joints pains; could not move my wrists, my rt ankle, lt shoulder pain, fingers all ached and rt wrist swollen.
Orthopedic MD is saying possible gluten intolerance could be causing it. Using lidocaine in order to tolerate sex at this point is only going to complicate your issue.I've been suffering from an ulcer on the inside of my vagina wall for about 8 mos.
