Irritated, itchy vulva. The only thing that soothes it is an ice cube. What is it? Is it an allergy to soap?

Irritated, itchy vulva. The only thing that soothes it is an ice cube. What is it? Is it an allergy to soap?

Both: Without any lesion observed, I think irritation from soap, particularly scented soap should be considered. On the other hand, it may also be from dry skin and you may try applying a moisturizer to the area immediately after bathing to see it this helps. If not, consult a dermatologist. ...Read more

Hello, my name is tamara. I had a question about my vulva, because it's been a little irritated lately. I know this is embarrassing but i'll describe to you everything. It's moist and has no odd discharge, but the skin is peeling off, as wet-sunburned ski

Hi : Hi tamara. Never be embarassed when it comes to questions about your health! based on your symptoms it sounds like you may be dealing with a yeast infection. This type of infection is very common in diabetes and often presents just as you described. The infection may be limited the the outside of your vagina (vulva) as oppossed to only the inside as commonly thought. I recommend you try an over the counter vaginal yeast infection cream, however in addition to putting the cream inside your vagina using the applicator, i suggest you apply a fair amount to the vulva where it is tender and itchy, this can be done twice a day. If this does not begin to alleviate your symptoms within a few days, then it may be a good idea to see your doctor because there is a chance you have another issue going on. Good luck. ...Read more
