Currently i am having ovares, chymoral forte and folic acid. I am not feeling any pain while passing urine. It is just all over vaginal skin i am feeling the itching.

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear, thanks for trusting health care magic.
In my opinion this is just a post inflammation itch and will go by itself in a couple of days.
Till then apply talcum powder in that area to keep it dry avoid scratching as much as possible.
Keep applying same ointment twice a day after property washing the area each time.
Also change your undergarments every time after applying the cream.
Keep the area dry and avoid tight clothes for a few days.
Take care.

I have been using clean and dry intimate cleaning liquidfor cleaning it every morning. Is it safe to use clean and dry?

Detailed Answer:
It is otherwise safe but don't apply it for at least 2 weeks because the skin in that area is sensitive right now so it will react to that.
Just apply quadriderm twice a day and keep local hygiene and this alone will suffice.
All the best.
