  • I had the same thing happen when I was pregnant with my second child. It turned out to be a yeast infection but just on the outside of the vagina. The Doctor put me on some antibiotics and gave me some cream to put on there that had steroids and anti itch medicine in it and it cleared up in a couple of days. Nothing will happen to the baby you can contact your doctor now or get some monistat cream and apply it until your next doctors appt.

  • Call the doctor. It's always better to be cautious when you're pregnant. I can't tell you how many times I called the doctor because "the baby felt like it was falling out" and she just kept telling me it was fine and not to worry. OB/GYNs are used to crazy pregnant ladies calling them for all kinds of reasons. Play it safe.

  • call an on call nurse at your drs office

    could this be from all the hot weather, like hot sticky, sweatie, no AC
    hope it is nothing and you are feeling better real soon

  • Definitely call your Dr. and go in to see him/her early next week. Better safe than sorry. Have you changed your laundry detergent, bath soap, shampoo? You should also only wear cotton underpants, not polyester especially if it is hot by you. Don't use scented panty liners either. I would actually eliminate panty liners all together. They all give me a rash too. Hope you feel better!

  • I was having something similar a few weeks ago, only it didn't just itched and got swollen. The dr said it was a yeast infection and gave me a rx for some cream(which my insurance didnt cover so I never got can get it w/o a rx's pretty much vagisil) and told me to apply it only on the outside where I was itching. I also suggest getting some Summer's Eve feminine wash(for sensitive skin works the best-the green cap) it really helps a lot.

  • sounds like a yeast infection to me too!! i had the same thing recently. Dont stress yourself, call the doc and ask if they would like to see you first or if you can try something over the counter.
