Question: My clitoris is itchy and irritated and a little red and very irritated. I think what's causing it is the fact that I used bath salts (like the kinds from bath and body works, not the drug) that I bought at a goodwill over a year ago when I bathe for the last two days. The first day it was slightly irritated now its really irritated. Do I need to see a doctor? How do I make this problem go away? I'm not having problems urinating or weired discharge only the itchiness and irritation.

Thanks for trusting us about your healthcare.

It could be due to fungal infection caused by fungus.
You should take antifungal medicine for the same.
Keep the area dry and clean and drink a lot of warm water and eat lots of vegetables and fruits.

Should I see a doctor or do they have that kind of stuff at the store? Do I need a prescription? Is it expensive? Is there anything else I can do? Is there any way it will just go away on its own? I'm kind of short on money so I dont want to have to go to a doctor and get a prescription unless its serious.
