Dear XXXXXXX

Thanks for your query.

Itching and burning pain in the genital region can be a sign of genital infection commonly yeast (fungus) infections.

Such infections occur commonly following an unprotected sexual intercourse.

Yeast infections are not a serious concern and they usually go away in a few days. Rarely, they can persist for longer time leading to vaginal discharge, burning sensation while passing urine and so on.

You can try 'Venegar soaked douches' daily or on alternative days. They are known to effective against yeast infections.

Alternatively antifungal creams such as 'Lotrimin' or 'candid creams' can be used.

Consult a gynecologist if the symptoms persist despite the above measures.

Hope I have answered your query.

If you have any more queries, I will be available to answer them.

Regards

Thanks for follow up question.

As i already suggested,

You can try 'Venegar soaked douches' daily or on alternative days. They are known to effective against yeast infections.

You can try Antifungal creams like Candid B cream(1%),its a topical cream should be applied on affected part. Apply 2-3 times per day for 2-4weeks. OR Lotrimin cream.

Keep the affected part clean and dry.

Meanwhile i suggest you to see a Gynecologist for a detailed examination(per vaginal examination) .
