Hi doctor,

For the past three days, I am having excessive thirst and frequent urination. The feeling to urinate is always urgent. Sometimes the urine quantity is normal, and sometimes it is in drops. Also, my left hand - ring finger and middle finger appears slightly swollen in the middle. Kindly let me know why this is happening and what shall I do?

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

All the symptoms you are describing are related to a urinary infection. Kindly let me know the following details so that I can help you with your problem.

  • Do you have any white discharge from the vagina?
  • Is there any itching sensation around your urethra and vagina?

Please get back to me with the replies to tell you what to do next.

Regards.

Thank you doctor,

I have white discharge from the vagina. I can notice the discharge, but not excess. Sometimes, there is itching around the anus. More often, I do not notice the itching. Can you please tell me what to do?

Hello,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

It appears to be a urinary infection with yeast infection of the perineum.

Kindly do the following:

  • Get a urine routine as this will show the presence of infection.
  • A blood sugar test to see the cause of yeast infection (as yeast infection increases with uncontrolled sugars).

Now, if you need, I can prescribe an empirical treatment for both.

Kindly let me know if you need it.

Regards.

Thank you doctor for the concern,

I would need one now, and I will act according to your suggestion. Kindly tell me what I have to do.

Hello,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

I would suggest the following medications for urinary infection and advice:

  1. Tablet Nitrofurantoin SR (sustained release) 100 mg, morning and night for five days after food, reduces the infection.
  2. Tablet Urispas (Flavoxate) 200 mg thrice daily for three days after food to reduce the pain, not to take if the pain reduces.
  3. Candid V6 vaginal pessaries (keep it in your vagina after you pass urine before sleep for six days, you will see an increase in white discharge, but that is due to the tablets or pessaries melting, so do not worry )
  4. If sexually active, kindly abstain from intercourse for one week till you finish the pessaries.
  5. Take plenty of fluids.

Kindly get back to me with the urine routine and sugar test (before food and after food).

Contact me if you have any queries.

Regards.
