For the past year I have been suffering from intense vaginal itching. I have tried monistat and other medications, but nothing is helping. I also changed my laundry detergent to be free of perfume and that hasn't helped either.

Hello, Donna! How are you? Have you consulted your doctor for an exam?

You might have some type of bacterial infection that requires an antibiotic to be eradicated. Your doctor can take a culture and send it to a lab to discover what's causing your problem. The FDA lists the typical antibiotic side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, non-allergic skin rash, and diarrhea.

Are you on any other medications? Has there been any discharge, or odor?

Can taro mometasone cream be used for a swollen, inflamed, itchy vulva? There is no odor or discharge. I have been using KY ultra gel, intimate cream along with ice packs, but it's very itchy and swollen, driving me crazy.

I was given 4 prescriptions, anti itch, super pill, plus 15 follow up anti itch pills, plus anti biotics for skin infection plus ointment to rub all over. Swelling subsided, plus itch got less but now that I'm off the meds, the itch is back so am going to my family doctor today here in Canada as we are home from AZ. I was told that it was a reaction to my panti liner that I have been using for years.

I've been experiencing vaginal itching. If I use hot water with a towelette and Dettol antiseptic liquid, I will feel a very good amount of relief but after some hours it will come back. Please, what else can I use?

Re: Pauline (# 3)

Got the severe itch and swelling back a month after the first one, was not wearing a panti liner as they thought I was allergic to them, so that theory is out. I did try monostat again so maybe I'm allergic to that, or I used Voltaren gel on my knees and hips so maybe I'm allergic to that. Was given an antibiotic plus anti itch pills again plus nystatin cream to use. Has subsided but still itchy and the anti itch pills make me very weak and tired, feel like a dish rag. I honestly think my low grade bladder infection is the cause of it all as when I lay down I feel a oozing or bubbling sensation from the ureatha. I'm going to discuss with the doc if going back on the estrogen patch will balance everything out as this seems to have started when I went off estrogen, bladder infections, at least 8 per year, now this severe vulvavaginitis, swelling and itching, takes a toll on your body, no energy, no desire to get up, takes so much energy just to get ready every morning. Going back to the doctor in a few days to have a discussion as I can't live with this anymore.

3 weeks ago I had been diagnosed with PID. I finished my treatment. For about two weeks now my urethra has been very itchy and sometimes I have a sharp pain after I urinate... I don't think it's UTI. My discharge is yellowish/greenish and a lot...I've also used Fluzole 150mg a week ago and nothing is happening. I have sleepless nights. Please help.

Severe, vaginal itch and swelling"
Went to the GP and he thinks it's a hormone imbalance so I'm trying premarin twice per week to see if that helps. Swelling is down and not so itchy also mometasone ointment on the nights I don't use premarin. Also still taking antihistamine, 1 per night, helps me to sleep. Doc said the premarin would or could help with the bladder infections, now wouldn't that be a bonus
