I have experienced vulva itching, particularly at night while I sleep. Sometimes it also affect my anus. I get relief from hot water applied to the area. When I receuved a lesion on the outside of my vagina, my Dr. says that it is just a hair bump, it is common and prescribed antibiotics. I always put hot water on the vulva are for relief in the mornings. I have discharge but I am not sure if it is related. Can you offer any suggestions?

  • Demand your doctor do a test for vulvar cancer. I was misdiagnosed, my doctor said it was a swollen blood vessel. He treated me for a swollen lymph node in my groin for 4 months. i got a second opinion. After biopsy, I was diagnosed with stage 4 squamous cell cancer of the vulva. After a radical vulvarectomy and radiation in 2007, i am in remission. But, I could be dead. Please demand a test - this is a cancer most doctors are not aware of.

  • Still had not heard about your sugar in your food and your bread diet. When I over load, I cause all the problems to roll on out. The yeastie beasties think they can own the world, make you itch and all. Use the creams for yeast infectionsuse the powers for yeastiesHeck I use the powdered sprays they have for foot fungal same med. Gives you a whooo. Use under breast also if you start smelling there too. THen cut sugar and breads out of your diet. It wil help. Luck. Fight the Beastie Boys.
