Gettin’ Fizzy with it

The other day this lady came in with an interesting story. Apparently, she had found a bottle of Valtrex in her boyfriends back pack, only it had another woman’s name on it. Assuming that her boyfriend must have contracted herpes, and then passed it on to her, despite her being asymptomatic, she thought she would disinfect herself. But how would one do this you ask?  She henceforth proceeded to pour an entire bottle of hydrogen peroxide on her genitals, but became alarmed when it started to fiz, thinking that must mean that she was indeed infected. So she thus reported to the ED with a chief complaint of “foaming vaginal reaction”.

About ER Jedi

I’m a resident doctor in Emergency Medicine and I’ve learned during the past few years that 1) I’ve had some pretty amazing experiences 2) I have a very bad short-term memory. So this blog is just a place for me to write about some of these experiences, from the ER, medical school, the wards and life in general. At least that way I’ll have some idea as to where I’ve been all this time. A scrap-book of sorts, a place to vent, organize some clinical tools and post a few good songs I’ve heard along the way.
