Can I use maximum strength hydrocortison anti-itch cream 1% for vagina itching?

Can I use maximum strength hydrocortison anti-itch cream 1% for vagina itching?

You can, but...: ...Whether it works will depend on the cause. If it's due to a yeast infection, for example, the effect will be temporary at best. Still, it won't hurt to try, and if it doesn't work, see your doctor and find out the cause. And by the way, "maximum strength" is a marketing slogan; 1% hc cream is actually not very strong at all - it's just the maximum you can buy without a prescription. ...Read more

I started itching and have hives, took a allegra at 3:30 am, applied Benadryl (diphenhydramine) ant-itch cream this morning. Noticed hives now can I take Benadryl (diphenhydramine) tablet?

I started itching and have hives, took a allegra at 3:30 am, applied Benadryl (diphenhydramine) ant-itch cream this morning. Noticed hives now can I take Benadryl (diphenhydramine) tablet?

Yes, but...: The Allegra (fexofenadine) is a long acting, non-sedating anti-histimine. If the itching hasn't been controlled, it is ok to take Benadryl (diphenhydramine) which is a short acting and sedating anti-histimine- so be aware of the potential for drowsiness.....Limit the Benadryl to one or two tablets per day, if continuing the allegra (fexofenadine). ...Read more

Try claritin and zantac (ranitidine) together, if not allergic and no contraindications. See your doctor soon. It must be miserable.
