No all tests negative. Concerned all testing normal including stds and no vaginosis and still having burning, itching and discomfort with contact in that area despite wearing loose clothing & switching to all fragrance free/paraben free shower products. Wondering if anyone on this site has expertise in vulvovaginal disorders who could advise? Thanks!

Brief Answer:
burning and itching in vagina, evaluation

Detailed Answer:
Get yourself checked by gynaecologist can take vaginal smear and get it stained. Have to rule out bartholin gland infection and yeast infection. Take antiseptic douching. Can use fungal pessaries to treat fungal infection. If not responding then take anti fungal systemic antibiotic like fluconazole. Maintain hygiene and cleanliness, drink more water. Take alkasol suspension three times daily. Get your husband or partner checked for fungal infection or trachomatous infection. Prohibit sex till such time.
