I have been diagnosed with dermatitis of the genitals. I am a 66 year old female. I've had this problem for 15 months and the severe itch is driving me and my husband crazy! I have been given prescriptions for hydrocortisone/menthol crysta and while it helps relieve the itch, it does not cure it. I want to know the underlying cause and fix the problem! Any one have any ideas? I have been under the care of my gyn. and dermatologist.
