Dear, NEVER ever douche. that is the worst thing a woman can do. It changes the balance of flora within our vagina and makes us ripe for a yeast infection which it sounds like you may have. You should contact your doctor if this is your first vaginal issue such as a yeast infection. he/she will either give you a prescription for an oral tablet you take by mouth that will treat the yeast systemically or he will advice you on the over the counter medications specifically for yeast.
Wishing you lots of luck and again, do not douche. It is not good for women and doctors advise against it. good luck
i self treated for yeast already which cleared up the yeast but didnt take away the itch.
if you dont mind me asking why do u say oatmeal.. thanks in advance
You may still need to be treated for the yeast or you may have some other issue going on. I strongly suggest you see your doctor. good luck
thanks i would see a doctor but I have no insurance, no money i visited a clinic and they still charge 125. I dont have that type of money right now. But thank you
Ugh. I understand. many a place in my area has a sliding scale when someone doesn't have insurance.
Honestly, I would treat yourself again with the over the counter medication, consider vagisil as well.
Oatmeal is a remedy for skin issues like if you have poison ivy. People soak in a tub to stop the itch. You could try this.
This sounds exactly like Lichen sclerosus. Lichen sclerosus (LS) is a skin condition that makes the vulva look white, slightly shiny, and smooth. ... Lichen sclerosus can also cause the skin of the inner lips of the vulva to change and shrink or get smaller. In severe cases, scar tissue can form.
Did you get a diagnosis and has it gone away?
