How can I permanently get rid of the vaginal itching which turns up after sex ?

I am a 29-year-old female. my majora labia has been itching for almost 3years now. Right after my husband cheated on me, I started to itch. no doctor can tell me exactly what i have. some has given me yeast infection cream,that burned me when i put that on. then i went to another doctor a couple of months ago,she gave me clobetolsol(i think thats how to spell it). that worked. But then I ran out of the cream. Then right after I ran out, my husband and i had relations and it was burning while and then itching a whole lot after. now it inflammed,spreading to my butt cheeks , I have little speckled of blisters, the lips is raw, and I m now afraid to have sex. So I went to doctor again, she prescribed the medication again for 2months. I don t want to keep on using this cream if there is something to get rid of it forever. i surely hope this take away the itching/burning feeling i have forever.

I am a teenage female experiencing vaginal itching and burning, along with a white discharge that doesn t seem to cheesy or clumpy. When I took a look at my genitals, it was slightly red. I just recently lost my virginity and then I had sex not long after that, both of which were unprotected. I have no idea what my sexual partner had and I am no longer in contact with him. I do not know what I have or how to treat it and my OBGYN is an hour away so I cant afford going back and forth. I am currently looking for a new OBGYN but the itching and burning is hard to ignore meanwhile. Do you have any idea what I could possibly have and/or any home treatments that would help?

The only time it "burns" when i pee is when im dehydrated and my pee is diluted, and its not even bad, other than that its normal. Im using Protopic Ointment 0.1% But that seems to make my Penis burn like a rash .. and Desonide Ointment 0.05% which is fine. I had a STD test like 5 months ago and it came back negative i was tested for every thing but Herpes. So whats the deal when this problem just WONT go away??

Are all cortisone shots used synthetic anymore and what is the difference in effectiveness when used? I recently had a cortisone shot but no one ever mentions synthetic or natural and I forgot to ask the doctor but will next time. Is the natural hormone still used?

Dear Dr. For months now I have had tiny clear fluid filled blisters on my hands and feet. It started out looking like a foot fungus on my right foot & soon spread to my left hand & then my left foot & right hand. My primary Dr. gave me 20 days of Fluconazole 150mg & my hands cleared up but my feet didn t clear up all the way. It then turned into what looked like a severe burn & began to bleed & crack until I could hardly walk. I was sent to a dermatologist (nurse practitioner) who said it was psoriasis & I was given Clobetasol Propionate ointment & it cleared it up, but then it came right back & the ointment seems to have no effect on the clear fluid filled bumps until they have turned into a red, dry, sore...The ointment does nothing until the blisters have broken & turned into a painful mess. For some reason I don t think it s psoriasis, because the blisters are never filled with puss, just a clear water looking fluid, this has left me unable to even do housework at times & makes me fear working in my yard because of the pain on the bottom of my feet. What do you think I may have & what can or should I do? I also now have pitting on 5 of my finger nails & I think it was caused by those fungus pills, I don t know what I have. What do you think it could be & what should I do?? Please help! Thank you, Rob
