I have been recently diagnosed with Desquamative Inflammatory Vaginitis and have been suffering from this condition for several months now. At first, I thought it was a continuous thrush/yeast infection occuring as the symptoms are very similar such as redness, yellow discharge, itchiness, swelling and irritation.
My Gynecologist has told me it is an auto-immune response where my immune systems is attacking this area for no particular reason. He has recommended using Dalacin V Cream (clindamycin phosphate) which does improve the symptoms temporarily although the symptoms do return within about four weeks. Overall, I suffer from this uncomfortable condition each month.
I am also trying to conceive naturally which makes me believe that this condition could be part of the problem of not being able to conceive up until now.
Any feedback or suggestions would be helpful in terms of other successful treatments or cures for this condition.
