Itching 'down there'
I am almost done with my incivek treatment but have noticed increased itching in the vaginal area. Has anyone else had this experience? If so, what helped? I had placed a little rubbing alcohol on it this morning, once the sting wore off, it was considerably better but I don't want to have to do that for the last week of treatment. I also fear that it may run down into the anus and set that thing on fire--again!!!

Do you have a yeast infection?  I'm sorry but your really brave to use rubbing
alcohol down there. : )  I think I would have tried yogurt first.  I'm sure that
someone will come to your aid here in a minute.  I still can't believed you braved that.

I don't think it's a yeast infection... There is no odor, no strange discharge... It feels like the rest of my itchy skin... I thought about hydrocortisone cream but was afraid it would cause an infection...

If you do not have a yeast infection, then the itching is probably from the drugs.

I had itching in the perineum along with itching everywhere else. It did not go away until I got on 50 mg of Hydroxyzone every 6 hours. That is a prescription. It got rid of all of my itching, everywhere, including the perineal itching.

I had a rash everywhere too, including the perineal area but, as stated, it all went awy with the prescription Hydroxyzine. (Over the counter Benadryl was useless.)

I would agree:  ask for a prescription of Hydroxyzone and I would also add go ahead and try a little hydrocortisone cream and maybe alternate it with a little lidocaine cream.  My guess is it's part of the overall rash.  If it doesn't improve, I would definitely call the doctor.  Use the same philosopy as for the overall rash:  clean, soothe, protect.
