Itchy Vag.?

I really don't know how else to put the question. LOL.
For those of you who will say go ask your doctor, I would rather not have to make a doc visit for something that I could prossibly get over the counter.
Any ways it started yesterday, it's just a crazy itch that won't go away. No discharge, no smell... JUST ITCH! I'm never had a yeast infection before so I really don't know what that is like... if you have any idea or something that I could get that would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

  • Vagisil, Monistat or any other yeast infection medicine. You can also you anti-itch creams. Have you changed soap or anything? It could be an allergy

  • Itchy vag with no scent COULD be yeast infection. Symptoms itching(of course,duh), slight swelling due to irritation, uncontrollable urge to scratch. Try monostat 7 or what ever you can afford, I wouldn't go with anything LESS than 3 day treatment!!! Over the counter 1 day treatments don't work for everyone. If in a week you don't feel relief call doc immediately you might have trichonomis(a std!).

  • Nope no crabs. The itch isn't on the outside. It's all on the skin inside. Nope no soap change. I'll definalely have to see what they have at the store. This sucks. LOL.

  • Monistat 7 and plain yogurt (no sugar, no gelatin, real live cultures), not for eating.

  • I agree about the Vagisil. That can at least take the edge off the itching. You can also try treating it as a yeast infection. If you are still having this problem after treating that, then you should probably get seen to rule out anything more serious and get it treated, regardless.
