donot take any medicine during pregnancy without consulting a doctor as it may have bad effects on your baby.avoid synthetic and tight clothes,keep your genitals clean and dry,avoid frequent washing and use mild soap.for itching you can take cetrizine as required.this will definitely help you.

First of all don't use any medication without consulting your doc; as it may affect yr baby. There are number of reasons for yr problem. Low Hemoglobin. High sugar level(pregnancy diabetes),yr thyroid hormone level are important causes. You may be allergic to contactant like fabric, antibacterial washes.Stop all bath soaps , hot water washes ,avoid friction,use loose garments.You can take Tab. Avil twice/thrice daily with topical sofradex-f .
