  • If it's mostly on the external area "down there", try some hydrocoritisone cream. It's a topical that will stop itching and help clear up rashes. I used it on a rash on my arm when I was pregnant- and I'm pretty sure it's safe to use during pregnancy.

  • Warm water is the only thing I can think of. Sorry if that doesn't help much. I hope someone else can help you on here! Or isn't there an after hours number you can call to ask? Good luck!

  • You can use monistat and things like that. I had a yeast infection when I was pregnant and the doctor told me to get monistat.

  • You could have a yeast infection. If you think this might be what you have...The best thing that I have used was "Monistat" (get the kind with suppositories & cream). Otherwise...just an itch, Vagisil.

    If you can't get to a store tonight, maybe run a warm bath & put baking soda in the water & mix it & sit for awhile.

  • go to the phamacy and buy a bottle of witch hazel , soak a kotex pad with it and put it on the area......best if you can use the witch hazel as cold as possible but do seek medical help asap because it sounds like a yeast infection.
