How to get relief from the itchiness in the clitoris area

I have strep b in my vagina and i have finished my first ten days of penicillin, but still have an inflamed, itchy clitoris area. Can I use calamine lotion to relieve the itching? I have an appt Monday, but want some relief over the weekend. My clotrimazole-betamethasone cream isn't giving any relief.

Hi,

Calamine lotion won't work much. Apply Betamethasone cream itself. Apply three times a day. Wash regularly with warm and cold water alternatively. You can also take some antihistamines like Cetirizine under prescription for quick relief.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Archana Rajesh Babu, OB & GYN Specialist
