Vaginal Infection

04/05/2010

Question:

My mother is older and is taken care of by someone at their home. While changing one of her depends I noticed she had little clear beads all over her vaginal area. They are a gel like substance but are very sticky. She is covered with them. It looks kinda like overgrown lice eggs. Do you have any idea what this may be? or how she could have got it?

Answer:

I am not sure what those would be without seeing it personally. I highly recommend you have her see a physician to help better assess what it is for her to have an appropriate management.
