Unless the vaginal itching is caused by one of those bacteria, there would be little reason to use this medication. A good plan would be to see a doctor for an evaluation. This would lead to a diagnosis that had a specific and effective treatment. ...Read more

Cures or more promising longer lasting relief for vaginal dermatitis/eczema? Steroid ointment not 100% helpful for very long.

No fabric softener sheets in the dryer. See a dermatologist. ...Read more

A man has herpes and at times he uses Aquaphor ointment or tea tree ointment to moisturize (non-outbreak times) can that cause a woman vaginal issues?

Can you use ulcer ointments in the vagina to prevent a small tear from being moist and wet? If so, will this make the tear heal faster?

Herpes?: I have never heard of an "ulcer ointment", and I doubt it will help anything. Maybe one of the topical treatments for herpes (penciclovir)? By far the main cause of recurrent vaginal ulcers is genital herpes. Apparently you're male -- her partner? You both should be tested for herpes and other STDs. Good luck! ...Read more

Hi I have chemical burns on my vulva and vagina from using nair can you tell me what ointment or something to put on it so it can be back to normal.

Hi I have chemical burns on my vulva and vagina from using nair can you tell me what ointment or something to put on it so it can be back to normal.

Protection: IN the future - nair is not designed for delicate areas such as the vagina/ vulva - so please don't do that.
You can use a hydrocortisone cream (not ointment) and an antibacteria cream such as bactroban (requires a prescription), and KEEP the area area CLEAN and DRY - and use antibacteria soap - NOT any lotions, vaseline, etc. In addition, I also recommend never shaving - trimming okay. ...Read more

Can a female pseudohermaphrodite have children? If so how if a vaginal opening isn't present.

Can a female pseudohermaphrodite have children? If so how if a vaginal opening isn't present.

Sometimes possible!: Not all vaginal openings are obliterated. With female pseudohermaphroditism, ambiguous genitalia are present, even though ovaries and a 46, XX karyotype are present. The external sex organs differ in how strongly they are virilized; an enlarged clitoris with hypospadia is present; the scrotum is empty; and sometimes an obliterated vagina exists. Internal genitalia-ovaries, tubes and vagina are norml ...Read more

I have a growth on my vaginal wall, about 4 inches inside. It is 1-2 inches long, with a rounded knob-like end with a crater in it. It doesn't hurt.

Hmmm....: That sounds just like the cervix, which is at or near the end of the vagina in all women except very rare cases of women born without a cervix. The cervix is the entrance to the uterus. The "crater" is the hole in the middle of the cervix, that leads to the uterus. ...Read more
