  • irritation?

  • you have an imbalance of bacteria, regardless of whether it's good or bad. are you scratching or rubbing? if so the burning is probably from irritation and inflamed tissue. ask for a cream like mystatin.

  • probably need to drink more water. When I burn down there, I just put a tiny bit of neosporin on me. It really helps

  • I wouldn't use antibiotic. Could you be irritated? I would go a couple of days without clothes on bottom. Wear dresses with no panties. If you can't go that extreme then wear no panties at home. Make sure you are using laundry detergent and fabric softner that are the "free" kind that are for people that are sensitive. Wear panties that have cotton lining and are more like granny undies than thong.

    No sex until you are feeing better either.

  • actually I was told by a doctor and my momn ( nurse) that a little neosporin helps with irritation. And it does, and doesn't hurt anything. But I agree with Gaill about the types of panties and pants, anything that can rub can cause irritation.

  • to be on the safe side, I would also drink cranberry juice and eat yogurt. They help with bacteria and yeast. And, NO SEX!!

  • Are you still having sex? It's naturally to be a little less...moist.....during pregnancy and dry sex can cause major irritation and burning.
