Apple cider vinegar?: If you are using apple cider vinegar for housecleaning or food preparation then great. If you are using it vulvo-vaginally then STOP. Your itching may be due to a yeast infection that the vinegar will only make worse. If there is no relief from the itching when the vinegar is discontinued then see a GYN MD to be checked for an infection.

No: If you believe all you read about apple cider vinegar (it supposedly cures everything), you would be reading uncritically.

Probably yes,: But better take the medication, one tablet of Diflucan (fluconazole) should cure it.
