Itchy White Spots On Vagina
I have small white itchy spots on sides of vagina after a Brazilian wax a week ago. Is there an over-the-counter remedy for this?
It is most likey: A folliculitis if they r like small pimples. That's my best guess, keep clean with soap and water 2x per day and a form of antibiotic cream. I like a silver based cream because it takes care of fungus as well, but mix that with the Hydrocortisone cream. If not getting better u may need oral antibiotics. Good luck. ...Read more

Until u get in: Try lotrimin (clotrimazole) cream mixed with hydrocortisone, it could be a simple fungal infection. The ob/gyn fosters these complaints frequently so that would also be a good resource. One trick is to apply Hydrocortisone cream then apply gold bond powder instead of lotrimin (clotrimazole). My money is on a fungal type dermatitis. Good luck. ...Read more

The outside of my vagina (not where the hair grows) pink area is itchy. No unusual smell or discharge or spots. I do douche?
Don't douche: First don't douche. The vagina does a great job cleaning itself and you don't need to douche. Douching will only make the healthy normal flora of the vagina off.

I cut my outer vagina in three spots. They scab and are itchy. I apply lotion, but should I not? Also, don't know if I should see my doctor.?
Time: Itching on a scar anywhere is indication of healing due to cells that repair the tissue called fibroblasts. Lotion probably not helpful but probably not hurting (unless it burns).
