How old is your daughter?
Can you also tell me what she has been treated with?
She has been treating herself at the moment with Canestan an antihistamine and codeine
how long has she been using the Canestan?
and is this area she having the problem right near the clitoris?>
No she says that it is an unbearable itching sensation inside at the top of her vagina
Well I would suggest using the Canestan Cream (hopefully she has the canestan cream and not just the suppository).
Next I would suggest ADDING hydrocortisone cream and if she can get Triamcinolone cream instead of the hydrocortisone - use the triamcinolone instead
Also, I would get seen by an Ob/gyn as soon as she can - she might need a presription to Lidocaine JELLY to get help with immediate relief for the pain
I expect that medication is only on prescription here in England
usually triamcinolone is a prescription - but sometimes you can find it without.
but the Lidocaine is what can provide her immediate relief - it is a Numbing agent which should provide her relief over night which should provide her enough time for the Canestan and the hydrocortisone/ triamcinolone to work
But what is causing this itching?
She more than likely has a very severe Yeast (fungal / thrush) infection -
even if the tests have all proved to be negative
Thank you for your help
you are welcome
I really hope she improves and she should over the course of the next 24 hours
