Doctor insights on:
I have been having severe itching down there there on the skin area. Been treated for everything from yeast to vaginitis. Any ideas what else it is?!?
A few questions: What kind of materials your underwear is made of? Do you often wear tight, synthetic pants? Do you wash the whole area too much/too often or too "deep"?

Does a hairdryer improve the itching? (careful..) good luck ! ...Read more
Doctor said I had a little yeast or vaginitis. I'm still experiencing discomfort/ itching. She prescribed me metronidazole 500mg 4does. It didn't work?
Doctor prescribed Diflucan, but doesn't think I have a yeast infection (Vaginitis) + back, flank pain. Safe to use when I have an extra heartbeat?
Safe, but needed?: Something doesn't compute. Fluconazole (Diflucan) is only effective against yeast and would have no effect on any other kind of vaginitis.
