For the past few day I have had a horrible itching and burning sensation in my vaginal area. It doesn't itch internally, just externally. It started itching towards the end of my period and I haven't been able to shake it. I was currently put on antibiotics for acne, could that have anything to do with it? I'v been using Vagisil to ease the pain. What should I do?
If you were recently on antibiotics I would think it is probably a yeast infection. Get some otc cream Monistat 3, or something like that. Antibiotics can cause women to have yeast infections. If that doesn't clear it up go to the Dr.
