    Have One Right Now...

    I hate it. The itching and burning is something I don't want to ever experience again. Last time this happened was 4 years ago. Today I put the tablet in and poof, the horrible sensation was gone. I dunno what it is they put in the tablets, but they work like freakin magic.

    Is It?

    I don't know if what I am experiencing is a yeast infection.  What I know and feel is a burning sensation.  I put garlic, which I am fine, when I take the garlic out, it burns.
