  • It sounds like you may have a really bad yeast infection (thrush). If you ask at a pharmacy they will be able to give you a cream or tablets to sort this out. They also recommend you cut back on wheat and sugar. It often starts after a course of antibiotics or if you have a very sugary diet. Sometimes you can just be unlucky enough to get it. I would also recommend a probiotic taken for a month or so to help your body fight off the infection. Thrush/Candida can be throughout your body and the symptoms are coming out down below. A probiotic will restore the healthy bacteria in your body. Hope this helps!

  • Do you Shave? That happens to me because of in grown hairs. I leaned to shave in the direction of the hair growth, and if I apply A&D ointment right after I shave, it makes a huge difference.

  • Please consider getting checked by your doctor, as a woman, vaginal and vulvular health is important.

  • thanks for the replies. I guess I should have mentioned that about 2 months ago I used a course of 6 day internal thrush treatment, but it didn't do anything. I have also been using topical anti-fungal cream for the past 3 weeks and still very itchy. The itching isn't inside of my vagina, it's on the outside on my vulva. I'm too embarrassed to go to the doctor.
