Vagisil won't help: I hope your chlamydia is under treatment; Vagisil won't help it. Chlamydia doesn't cause genital itching; you probably have something else as well. One of the most common causes is yeast infection, which might have been triggered by antibiotic for chlamydia. Yeast also is not helped by Vagisil. Discuss with the doctor treating your chlamydia. Good luck!
