Detailed Answer:
Hi Mam ,

In your last 2 questions there was no mention about vulva itching. The pessaries and cream which you are using both are antifungal and supposed to reduce itching .

But since your are having menstruation there are likely chances that there may be more moisture at the vulva which is preventing adequate actionbof creams and also increases growth of fungi.

I would suggest you to keep the area as dry as possible though it is difficult by frequently changing pads. I suggest to use oral antihistaminics like cetrizine till itching subscides.

Continue pessaries and cream 3 to 4 days after completion of menstruation. By that time it should control infection. If still it persisit then show to doctor and get drugs changed as they may be ineffective.

Hope I have answered your query . If any further queries are there I would love to help.

Regards
Dr.Deepika Patil

My son had a small red itchy bump at the edge of his bottom a few days ago. We thought it was a bug bite. He scratched it and it got bigger and scabbed over. Now it is itching more, has a red area around it, and he has a few more similar bumps near it (also itchy). No other bumps on his body. Any ideas?

My 4 year old son was stung on the top of his ear this afternoon. That area has turned purple. Is this normal? Or a sign that he might be allergic? I don't know if I should take him to the doctor or just ice it. What do you recommend?

Thanks in advance!

Dear Doctor,
Early morning I sneeze continuously almost 1-2 minutes.after that I feel very uncomfort and my nostrils gets blocked.
Only after 2-3 hours I could be able to have the normal position. What is all about this and what should I do to get rid off from it.
