Just a bizarre situation

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

This is bizarre situation, even for me! Last Wednesday, I was cooking. I was making a potato casserole, which included using green chili. Usually, I don't use anything spicy in my food because my. kids don't like it. But for some reason, I decided to go ahead and use the chili. As soon as I slit the chili open, I felt it was super hot, and I ended up coughing and coughing. Anyway, it was so hot, that my hands started burning a bit. I didn't think anything of it, and finished cooking. My period had just ended, so I decided to go shower and clean up. I showered and washed down there with water. And for some reason, I decided to stick my finger in to clean up. I usually never clean up inside. I have no idea why I did that! Anyway, after I finished, I felt terrible burning in my vagina. Like somebody lit it on fire! Seriously. I was confused at first. And then I realized that it's probably the chili residue on my hands that did that. I told my husband and he laughed and said that it happened to his dad once when he used the bathroom after cooking spicy food lol. So, I thought ok, it's not ta big deal. After an hour, the burning was gone, but I felt really irritated. I waited for a bit, then called my gyno. I have an appointment with him tomorrow for.a different reason, but I explained the situation. He told me, to put a cream and said, that it should calm things down. And then laughed and said, "that's a bizarre problem." lol. So, by night time, I was still irritated, but ok. However, the next morning, I developed cystitis? Or what feels like cystitis. I'm very prone to cystitis, but usually only after intercourse. Why on earth, would I get it now? I've been drinking a ton of water and taking Ural. Its better, but still there. The whole situation is surreal, but I don't get why would I get cystitis as well. It's driving me nuts. 

I won't end my post by asking if anyone went through this. Because probably not lol. But does anyone have a clue why I would get cystitis as well? I'm seeing the doctor tomorrow, so I will talk to him. But I feel very irritated right now, so I just wanted to get it off my chest.

I only got a few sentences in and knew exactly where the story was going 🤣🤣🤣

Lots and lots of people have a chilli and genitals story... it’s common! The stories are those ones that are brought out every now and then for some laughs!!

Ouch! Certainly a bizarre story but do be careful, also there’s no need to clean anything inside, your vagina is like a self cleaning oven.

lol honey, there was no sex play here at all.  I'm one of those women who have zero sensation inside. I barely tolerate sex. It's only the clitoris that makes me feel good :)

Your post however has made me worry that this is what the doctor will think I was "really" doing lol.

I don't think the chilli could cause cystitis, you may have a superficial burn though that is stinging as you pee.

There is no stinging while peeing though. But just very frequent peeing. Much more than usual.

Could be just a coincidence that the chilli burn and cystitis happened at the same time? 
 

but bloody hell, please stay away from chillies in future!

Just perplexed as to why you would contact a gynae when you knew exactly the cause of the problem - chilli juice on your hand which you rubbed onto mucosal tissue. It’s like when you inadvertently rub your eye ages after cutting chilli not realising you still have residue even after washing your hand. You regret it but don’t ring an ophthalmologist. 

No idea why you got cystitis, you say you are prone so may just be serendipitous?

You would probably call an opthalmologist if it caused swelling and inflammation that wouldn't go away hour later. 

 

In my case, I have an autoimmune disease that causes vaginal lesions and I was worried that the irritation would trigger an outbreak. But even without the autoimmune disease, I would have called. I didn't want to know why. I knew why. I wanted to know how to fix it, because it was extremely uncomfortable.

@Minnie80 I feel for you.  I am curious to know which autoimmune diseases cause vaginal lesions, if you don't mind sharing.

If you get cyctitis after intercourse perhaps sticking your finger up your hoo haa acheives the same effect - regardless of chilli?

Medical things seem to work very differently in the country you live (Africa somewhere if I remember correctly) to what most people are used to here in Australia, where most of us are from.

Here most people would maybe call the health line then go to the emergency room at their hospital or just go straight to emergency or they would wait it out and try to get an emergency appointment with their GP! 

We don’t generally call our specialists and we would be lucky to get to chat to them in a timely manner!

But I thought cystitis was more about bacteria accidentally going up the urethra during sex?
