Itching and irritation in vaginal area. Suggest medication
User rating for this question
Hello. I have a pretty embarrassing question, but I am desperate. I recently developed what I think is a yeast infection. Although there is very little discharge and no odor, my vaginal area is extremely irritated and itchy. I haven't had sex in a very long time, so I was surprised by this outcome. However, I was recently diagnosed as being pre-diabetic. Tonight I tried to self-medicate with miconazole 1 and an external crème. The symptoms seemed to get worse immediately and I haven't been able to go to sleep. I followed up with an anti-itch wipe that made me burn. The only thing that seems to be giving me some relief is warm water. Please tell me what I can do to make this stop!

pl use intimate wash and use clotrimazole vaginal cream for 3 days and then insert vaginal clotrimazole perssary for 6 days. oral itracinazole can be taken if no contraindications . oil based peas arise cause less inflammation and burning
