Question: Hello. I am 6 weeks pregnant and the itch on the vagina area is killing me. I just moved to the U.S so I have no idea where to look or what to do. Can I go to the CVS and get some creme or something without a doctors note?

Brief Answer:
Nystatin , clotrimazole

Detailed Answer:
Hello and Welcome

I appreciate your concern

Based on your description , it appears to be a possible yeast infection. Though effective oral therapy with single dose is available but it should not be used in pregnancy.

The best alternative is local application of clotrimazole or nystatin cream twice a day for 14 days. Both are available over the counter and dont require a prescription from the doctor. If the itching persists after 2 days or worsens then go to a doctor near you to examine the area and advise accordingly.

Wishing you best of health

Sometimes the pain in my thigh hurts so much I have to wait awhile before I can walk. I had two shots in the hip. It helped for awhile. I am thinking about Lazar treatment. I will go to a meeting to learn about this treatment. What do you think of this treatment.? I read that it was certified by the FDA

Hello. I am a 48 year old female. I have a small cyst-like bump on my perineum about 1/2 an inch below my vaginal opening and slightly to the left. It was flesh colored a few days ago and now has turned a yellowish-white color as if it were filled with pus. It only hurts if I touch it or if it gets compressed. What do you think it might be?
