    Suggest remedies for itching inside the vagina

Posted on Fri, 3 Jun 2016 in Vaginal and Uterus Health
Question: What can I use to heal a scratch inside my vagina?
Answered by Dr. Deepti Verma 6 minutes later
Brief Answer:
Infection should be ruled out

Detailed Answer:
Hi dear,
I have gone through your question and understand your concerns.
Scratch inside vagina can be due to infection or dryness.
I will suggest you to consult an OBGYN specialist to get properly examined internally to rule out any infection and get further treatment accordingly.
In the meantime, you can take levocetrizine tablet to get relief from itching.
Hope you found the answer helpful.

This is due to a scratch from my boyfriend, not an infection. Sorry, I should have been more detailed

Still not satisfied with the answer. What can I use to heal a scratch from a fingernail? Thanks.
