Link between yeast infections and herpes


Recommended Posts

Some of you know my story but for those that don't, I found out that I have HSV 1 genitally about a month ago. The only reason I found out was because I went to the dr to get treatment for a really bad yeast infection. I was given the 10 day acyclovir for the sores and meds to treat the yeast infection. A few days ago I felt prodrome symptoms (tingling, itching, etc) and yesterday I noticed 2 sores on my upper inner thigh (a completely different area than my first OB). The thing is, I also seem to be experiencing a yeast infection again. Wtf is the deal with this? It's bad enough to have to deal w the sores themselves. I was also hoping I wouldn't get another OB and would be able to stay off daily suppressive therapy but it looks like that's my best option now.


Does anyone else have similar experiences or know about the link between H OBs and yeast infections?
