Internal Vaginal Itching While Pregnant
Although I am taking anti fungal tablets my vaginal itching is not totally alright. In the course of 1o days it's been 5 days and it still itches me.

Yeast is certainly not the only cause of vaginal itch. Fungus is usually not that itchy. So see a GYN or dermatologist. You need to provide precise information about symptoms and about all pills or treatments. ...Read more

Remove monistat 1st: You may be having an allergic reaction to the medication or you may not have a yeast infection.
