Hi, Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum.
May be you have Vaginal Candidiasis or Fungal Infection of Vagina, Kindly get yourself examined by a Gynecologist to rule out the exact cause. You will need Oral Anti Fungals or Vaginal Pessaries. Kindly do not delay.

Wish you Good Health, Take Care.

hello
welcome to health care magic
vaginal iching is medicaly termed as pruritus vulva.
some of the common cause is unhygiene,stress,menopause,vaginal yeast infection,chemical irritants like ointments,creams,contraceptives jelly.
Keep your genital area clean and dry. Use plain, unscented soap.
keep your sugar level under control if your diabetic
loose weight if your obese.
wear cotton panties avoid synthetic material.
Avoid overexertion, heat, and excessive sweating.
Avoid scratching, which will only aggravate the problem.
eat yogurd.
if at all iching persist after self care you need to consult gynaecologist or homeopath doctor.

One of my libia minora is larger than the other one. rIn case you dont know, your libia minora is a part of a girls vagina, (google image search vagina and click on a diagram and you ll see it) I firsted noticed that this one was getting larger about the time I fisrt got my period. I grew quickly, but then stopped growing and has stayed the same since then. To give you a estimate on how big it is, when i have my underwear on you can see a bump there, not huge, but there is a bump:( I am 14 and dont want to tell my mom about it. I have told friends and some say its fine and on says that its probably cervical cancer, i told her i got the vaccine (gardisil) for it and she said, exactly, they inject the cancer into you, i said, but its dead, and she said not completely, you can still get it. I don t know what to you, its size bothers me sometimes because if i have jeans on i can feel it and it itches sometimes too. I have never had sex, but there was an experience that i dont want to discuss that i wonder if this is some sort of STD???? What should i do??/

I have a rash in my left armpit only. Little itch. My doctor prescribed and I used a tube of ketocamozole. After six weeks I returned to the doctor. He then prescribed, which I took, a four day course of ketocamozole. Each time the rash greatly improved but did not quite go away. Same response when I use OTC anti-fungal, lotrimin.The rash is almost non-existent, but flares up when I perspire. Always there.Should I try a steroid of some type?

I was diagnosed lat week wtih a fungal ear infection. I am on clotrimazole drops.
