Irritation and inflammed private parts.
Hi Doc,
My wife and I appear to be harbouring some or other "gogga" that is causing severe inflammation and discomfort, especially during intercourse. Her GP prescribed Flangyl (5 tablets each, for the both of us, to be taken all at one time) but we still have the problem. In fact, it appears to be getting worse. What now ? Any idea what it could be ?
Please help.

Shyguy, it’s difficult to say what the problem is without being able to examine you, but it sounds that taking 5 Flagyl® tablets is not going to be enough. National health guidelines advice 400mg Flagyl® twice a day plus 100mg doxycycline twice a day for a week. Maybe the best would be to get a second opinion from a different doctor. Good luck.
