Stop it!: If you get worse when taking a medicine, you may have a problem with the medicine as well as the disease. Stop it for now and talk to or see your doc to see if you should continue it or use something else. If you take diphenhydramine and it stops the itching, there's a good chance that you are allergic to the medicine. ...Read more

See a doctor: Yeast infection remains possible; about 10-15% are resistant to the usual treatments. Or perhaps something else, including a possibility of an STD like gonorrhea, chlamydia, trichomonas, etc (if you are at risk). Failure to respond to self-treatment for yeast always should be followed right away by professional evaluation. See a doctor. Good luck! ...Read more

I have had a lot of severe itching around and on my vaginal area. It has been that way for a long time. Recently I have scratched it raw. Lately I haven't scratched at all and it is becoming raw on its own. Today I experienced discharge from the raw area.

Dermatologist needed: Hi: you should see a dermatologist to properly evaluate the underlying cause of itching, as there may be many. In addition, your scratching may introduce a secondary bacterial and/or fungal infection due to the violation of the skin barrier. Therefore, a thorough evaluation is warranted. ...Read more

Yeast infection: Antibiotics like Augmentin (amoxicillin-clavulanate) can trigger vaginal yeast infections, and the main symptom usually is itching; "dryness" also can go along with it. Monistat is a standard treatment for yeast. The 3 day version is just as effective as 7 days, so feel free. Check back with your doctor if the symptoms don't clear up in a few days. ...Read more
