I have mycosis, never had sexual relations but am getting married…I’m embarrassed?

I’m a 28 years old female -from Algeria, Africa- and I’ve been suffering from what it’s been diagnosed as a mycosis in my intimate area since the age of 14. I went to a specialist twice when I was a teenager, but now I’m too shy and embarrassed to let anyone see this part of my body, so every time it appears I just take what the doctors prescribed me: Saforelle Gentle Cleansing Care and Mycocide (an antifungal that contains Triamcinolone,Néomycine and Nystatine). When I apply the cream for a week the swollen spots get better but the dark “things” on my lips (I can’t tell which ones minor or major) never went away. I’m too scared to know the truth about my condition but I can’t stay indifferent anymore. What I noticed during all those years is that it gets worse when I take antibiotics to treat other minor health problems. For the record, I clean this area with water everytime I use the toilet and with soap once a day. I also never had any sexual contact or relations in my life, but I got recently engaged and I’m frightened to let my fiancé get close to me.

I don’t have a camera but I’ll try to take a picture of it if necessary. Please, help me.

All my regards

What you can do is, instead of taking only oral tablets, you can also use vaginal anti fungal pessaries simultaneously, that will take care of the… Read more »

HI
MYCOSIS REMAINS DORMANT IN YOUR BODY FOR SOME TIME. IF YOUR IMMUNITY IS LOW THEN IT WILL TAKE EVEN MORE TIME HEALING UP.
THOUGH INFECTION IS HEALED THE AFTER MARKS MAY REMAIN. LOCAL CREAMS ARE THE ONLY ONES THAT WILL HELP
