oil of oregano for vulvodynia

Has anyone heard of using oil of oregano topically for vulvodynia? Is so, do you mix it with something like olive oil (I think I read this somewhere)?

Re: oil of oregano for vulvodynia

I would be very cautious putting oil of oregano in that sensitive area. I take (orally) only 2 drops of oil of oregano in a little water for Lyme Disease. It is a very strong substance. You could try mixing a drop or two with whatever you plan to use as the mixing medium and first test it on your arm or hand to see the effect.

Re: oil of oregano for vulvodynia

I have Vulvodynia too and have never heard of using oil of oregano for treatment. As the other posted said, please be careful what you put on your vulva. I apply Estrace cream topically and sometimes Emu Oil for dryness, burning, irritation. If any Vulvodynia sufferers want to talk, I'd love to hear from you. Sue

How long have you had vv? I have been battling it for over 25 years! Have you found anything that helps?

Re: oil of oregano for vulvodynia

I've had it a few years longer than you have. I've just been using the things I mentioned in my other post and Acupuncture. My life is more bearable now, but my body still reminds me that I have VV. I wouldn't wish Vulvodynia on my worst enemy.

Re: oil of oregano for vulvodynia

What does the acupuncture do exactly? I have been getting it to try and shrink my thyroid nodules but I did not know that it might work for vv. I have been on amitriptyline and neurontin for years. It helps but not enough to be able to hve sex without pain.
