  • 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 if you can use the witch hazel as cold as possible but do seek medical help asap because it sounds like a yeast infection.
