YEAST INFECTION

Itching
IT SOUNDS AS IF YOU HAVE A YEAST INECTION. TRY AN OVER THE COUNTER MEDICATION LIKE MONISTAT. IF THAT DOESNT WORK, YOU NEED A GYN EXAM

I have sores, swollen, itchy labia minora?

Allergy/trauma?

Stringio
Determining the cause is an important clue to treatment. In addition, a true allergy to topical creams, lotions, lubricants or even latex may cause itching. Inadequate lubrication with excessive trauma may also cause shear injury with itching. Please also consider the possibility of STDs. Discuss with your gynecologist.

Can I apply Fucicort cream to the itchy labia majora? Is it has bad effect to the vagina?

Steroid cream

Pruritis
Corticosteroid cream used only occasionally will not harm the vaginal area but if you have a yeast or other vaginal infection it could aggravate it. An exam by your gynecologist would be best for diagnosis, treatment and advice.

Severe itchy labia majora. Treated with monistat, flagyl, terazol 7, clobestol. Clobestol helped a little but still itching. I'm so scared plz help!!!

See a specialist

Pruritis
It might be time to see a specialist as it seems as if you've tried a lot of the common medications. A great book to help you as well, is The V Book by Elizabeth Stewart. Can find used on amazon. It's possible that you have a more complex condition, and also possible that a biopsy would help to rule out lichen sclerosis. Clobetasol is strongest med we have for this. See specialist, good luck

I'm a black woman and have had a very itchy labia for months. My labia is now light from scratching. I've used yeast creams, cortisone, & steroid cream. What is the cause? Will I get my color back?

? cause

Scratching
Anything that causes inflammation of skin can cause permanent pigment changes. Light people can get dark marks; darker skin can get either more or less pigmented areas. It is hard to say what is causing your itch. Your best bet for normalizing the color of the affected skin is to control the itching with oral medication to stop your scratching.
