  • You COULD, but if your detergent or dryer sheets are heavily perfumed, or the soap you wash up is scented...It could cause some MAJOR irritation! A few years ago, I was washing up with this body wash that smelled SOOOO good...like chocolate!...but a couple days later, it felt like my poosy lips were lit on fire!!! I stopped using the body wash, and got some fragrance free feminine wash, and OMG! What a difference! The itching and burning cleared up almost immediately!

  • I have used all the same stuff that I have for years! I did call the doc and she said it sounded like it was and to get monistate 7 day cream.. it still has me stumped because I had yeast infections all the time b4 and the discharge always changed... I don't know I have had soooo many problems here lately I wish there was a pill to speed up the process..lol

  • Not all yeast infections are the same and what is described. I had one during my pregnancy and went to the doctor and received medication to help it. Your doctor is the best on these issues, since he's the one that sees and examines you. Good luck and don't scratch!!

  • Yes, but it could also be a sign of BV (bacteria vaginosis) which is basically the opposite of a yeast infection, it's when the balance of flora in your vagina is thrown off in the other direction. Garlic works as a cure for both, so when I feel one coming on and I'm not sure which, I usually use a garlic treatment.
