How to treat itchy and sore vagina?

For a few weeks I have had a very red, itchy and sore under carriage. Firstly I treated myself for thrush but it is not really internal, it seems to be outside of my vagina although the lips of my vagina are itchy, sore, but it is mostly around the area close to my anus and crack of the bottom cheeks. Do you have any suggestions as to what I could buy to try and help. Many thanks

HI
Well come to HCM
I really appreciate your concern, fungal infection would be very likely and this can be best treated with "Povidone Iodine" vaginal suppository insert this three time in 24 hours, take care for hygiene, keep the area clean and this is nothing to worry, hope this information helps, take care and have a nice day.
I find this answer helpful
