Hi there,
I am a 21 year old female and am having a problem. I have had a sensitive and itchy area around my vagina for about 3 weeks now. I have tried a bunch of different things baby powder, diaper rash cream and am now using a hydrocortosone cream. There is no discharge it is kinda like a rash and now with this current cream it almost feels as if its peeling/drying out my skin. And I have now developed small red bumps right where my legs meet my vagina. It is very sore and I haven't had a chance to see my doctor as I have been on vacation out of the country. If you have any suggestions it would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks for your time and help :)

  • I have always had a very sensitive vaginal area. The one thing you don't want to do is irritate it more and that's exactly what you've done. Next take a bath & soak in either salt/water or baking soda/water for 10-15 minutes every night until you can get to the doctor. Also begin taken a good Acidophilus pill which will help balance out your good & bad bacteria. Never hurts.Definitely go to the doctor it's probably a bacteria infection now. At least that's what always happened to me when I would put anything & everything on/in me when there was discomfort. What's sad is I'm 36 and it's taken me this long to final get it right but I got it. So if you have any other questions let me know. Good Luck!
