Vaginal itching from 2 months

Hi, I am 24 years old and I am 37 weeks pregnant. I have vaginal itching for 2 months, I applied different creams against yeast, but no result. I even take soda bath, and it also has no effect. What should I do, and I am very anxious if it affects my baby. Thanks beforehand.

Hello
Vaginal itching is probably due to infection.It may not be safe to give you antibiotics at this late stage of pregnancy but you can use antifungal pessaries.You should see your OB for this.

Hi vafa,
you seem to be suffering from vaginal infection. i advise you to consult your gynecologist who after examination would prescribe proper antibiotic with topical anti fungals treatment. till then you can use Candid powder for local application which are safe during pregnancy.
take care.
Regards.
