has anyone applied baking soda to the affected area and had it BURN AND STING AND HURT REALLY UNGODLY FREAKING BAD? i'm so ...i don't know what to do about the pain anymore, i took the day off of work and am on my first day of valtrex, but this is crippling (and i have a very high pain tolerance). but i can't go to work if it means i have to come home and hop in the shower every time i have to pee. or you know, dissolve into a crying screaming puddle on the floor. so i tried the baking soda thing (after about 5 days of miss-treatments for a non-existent yeast infection). oh god, it hurts. it hurts so bad! everything that people say is supposed to provide soothing relief: BURNS i don't know what to do at all. pain killers don't really help with this.
