How can itching and burning sensation in the vagina be treated?

My Clit an labia have been itching for 3 weeks now. the itch is painful an burns and is extremely hard not to rub esp on my clit hood. The only way to relieve the symptoms is ice. The doctor gave me novo nordisk vaginal tablets 10 mg which i have been using for a week or so as i am menopausal. It eased off fora few days but is back again and I cant see my doctor for a week when the itching gets bad the hood swells an also some of the labia swells. also using vagisil but it does not help. Dont think I can wait another week.

Most probably it will be an early sign of fungal infections like yeast.

As of now, you can use Clotrimazole lotion to cleanse your genitals.

If symptoms persist better to consult a gynecologist and get evaluated.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

My partner (male) has Herpes 2.We been together over 3,5 years and I (female) was not diagnosed, I asked to be tested. But docs refused because I do not have ulcers in my genitals. However, I had some kind of recurrent infection that I was treated for (did not have this until this relationship). I feel burning of the skin of the labia, it is read. Now I have some red scar that looks as a red stripe under one of my armpit. I itches and has dry surface to touch. I feel as another armpit starts it too. My head hurts and I noticed some slur in my speech... What are the chances that this due to me having the virus, even if I don t have blisters on genitals? I read that if untreated it causes brain damages, etc. How can I convince my doctor to test me? I am so anxious and hope you can advice. Thank you
