I have been trying to cope with an overactive bladder for some

Customer Question

I have been trying to cope with an overactive bladder for some years now, and more or less saw it as a part of my life I had to put up with. However, for the past four months or so I have had severe vaginal itching and feel the two things must be connected. I have tried all kinds of amateur remedies, like doing away with bath oils etc, cutting down on coffee and citrus fruits. giving up wearing tights and tight trousers. Nothing seems to have helped, although a cream I bought at Boots gives some relief, but I now feel I am using too much. I am convinced that both conditions are connected with a lengthy period of acute emotional and mental stress. Is this possible? I also am reluctant to make a fuss or seek formal medical advice.
