i have a chronic vaginal itching. it will go away for a month but then comes back. i don't have a yeast infection, i take premarin (estrogen creme) because i am perimeopausal for thinning of the vaginal walls, i take a low grade antibiotic after intercourse, so as to prevent bladder and uti infections which i am prone to. what else can it be. this time it has stayed a week so i am going to the doctor for skin biopsies . any other suggestions? :confused:

  • Generally, taking antibiotics will upset your natural intestinal flora leading to a candida albicans overgrowh as I discovered..Often this is not diagnosed by doctors..The cream you are using may only be masking the yeast problem.If you want to know more I found a good site for yeast info with the most amazing info.: www.Stop Yeast.comtry the symptoms section to see if you have any of thoseall the best O.J.

  • I have the same symptoms. My doctor says it is related to my HCG levels. They slowly climb through your cycle, and drop when you are having your period. As the HCG levels climb, so does the itching. I currently relieve my symptoms by eating yogurt every day, and when the itching gets really bad with baths or showers (generally keeping the area very clean) and with homemade suppositories of boric acid. I find lack of sleep or sex also increase the symptoms.My problem is that the above treatments are not longer completely successful. I am wondering if you have had any luck yet with your symptoms, and what has worked for you? What is your diagnosis?
