I am 58 years old. For the past one year I have been experiencing vulva itching. I applied antibiotic cream for some time, I got a bit of a releive but now it does not work.

What can I do to relieve this vulva itch?

Does it itch all the time?- No not all the time. I seriously scratch about 4 times a day and often after visiting the washroom.Are there any skin changes?- Not really except that when I scratch hard I get sight bruises.Do you have any other medical problems or take any medications? No and I do not take any medications.

Thank you for that additional information.

At this point what can you do to get relief?

Well, you have already tried everything available over the counter and everything you can do at home.

It is time to seek professional help -- make an appointment to see your OB/GYN

You have to get a good medical diagnosis, figure out what is causing this ongoing itching, and get the correct medical diagnosis.

Make sense to you?

It's safe for you to press the positive feedback button now if you so desire. And, never fear, even after you press that button I'll still be right here to continue helping you, but, as I do work for tips, I want to make sure you are happy before rating me.
