Hi. I was sick with a sore throat and green phlegmn (probably sinus) and was put on augmentin antibiotics. 24 hours before my antibiotic course was over, I noticed irritation and itching next to my clitoral area, in lips of labia. It developed into a swollen lump then developed a head; drained and is shrinking. Now, 72 hours after my antibiotic, I have white patches on my throat.  I notice irritation down there in a new spot with itching and redness. I expect a lump to form. I get a spasm like feeling too. DR. Said its and inflamed gland....but why a second bout?? Is the throat thing related? Same partner for 1 year 5 mo. He tested neg for hsv 1 and 2 1 month ago, I was neg 2 months ago. Igg test. I took 1 diflucan 150mg last day of antibiotic as a precaution.

Hi, if you tested negative and he also and your relationship is stable then your symptoms would not be herpes related.

I agree they are not herpes related. Also, I don't think the throat thing has anything to do with the labial thing but if it did the antibiotics would take care of both. It doesn't sound like an STD related issue it is an infection or a cyst that is draining (regarding the labial area). If the throat or the labial area don't clear up and/or if you re-develop a fever see your doctor.
