Gibby- Cultures for the itching

Food fibers is usually what the report comes back as. That's been the frustration (and expense) of people trying to find out exactly what they've got going on.

Gibby, I had a thought too for the extreme vaginal/anal itching that is getting worse.

It would be a good idea to get a culture done to see if it could be something other than parasitic, or fungal (candida).

Bacterial Vaginosis wouldn't be taken care of by trying to hit candida or parasites.

Viruses are a co-factor with parasites. The Human Papilloma Virus causes itching, it can lay dormant for a long time, and then become activated.

Trichomoniasis is another one that should definetly be ruled out, especially because of pinworms and/or ascaris! What if..pinworms were the start of the problem, but the reason it's getting worse is because of what came off of the pinworms? That would also be why testing for parasites in a stool sample wouldn't show it as a cause.

>>Dientamoeba fragilis is a type of trichomonad>>

D. Fragilis is what I posted below that is found with pinworms and ascaris. I didn't know it was a type of Trich!!

Nonintestinal complaints include the following:

The mode of transmission is believed to be through direct fecal-oral spread and, possibly, through the eggs of E vermicularis (pinworm).>>

All this stuff will be passed back and forth sexually too.

>>Some have sensations of itching or burning. Women sometimes confuse this with yeast infections. Yeast does not look, nor smell, nor feel like Bacterial Vaginosis. The reason women mix them up is because they are the two most common vaginal infections

Clue cells. These are the big red flag. Clue cells are actually big globs of bacteria stuck to vaginal wall cells. Once the doctor sees this, she usually stops reading the report and starts writing the prescription.

Bacteria There's 100 to 1000 times more of them. Gardnerella may be mentioned specifically. Also, Hemophilus, or Bacteroides, Mobiluncus, Peptostreptococcus, and Mycoplasm.>>

"Bacterial vaginosis (BV) is the most common cause of vaginal infection. For grammatical reasons, some people prefer to call it vaginal bacteriosis[citation needed]. It is not generally considered to be a sexually transmitted infection[1] (see causes below). BV is caused by an imbalance of naturally occurring bacterial flora, and should not be confused with yeast infection (candidiasis), or infection with Trichomonas vaginalis (trichomoniasis) which are not caused by bacteria."


I'd be getting a culture to know for sure what you are dealing with.
