I need little additional information before I can send you a helpful answer.
How old are you?
Do you have any vaginal discharge now? Its color, consistency and odor?
Have you tried anything locally to treat this?
Okay and thanks for all the input.
Well such itching with minimal discharge without any odor can be due to vaginal yeast infection. Antibiotic intake can worse it.
Use following medicine to treat this issue.
Apply Canestan cream three times a day for 7 days over vulval and pelvic area.
· Apply 1% hydrocortisone cream three times a day for 7 days over vulval and pelvic area. Mix it with canestan cream and use it.
· Probiotics like Rephresh ProB are once daily for 14 days.
Tab zyrtec once daily for 3 days.
· Change out of wet clothing, especially wet bathing suits or exercise clothing, as soon as possible.
· Avoid feminine hygiene sprays and douches. Keep the area clean and dry as much as possible.
