Vaginal and anal itching

The past month I have been having vaginal itching and anal itching. Along with burning when i urintate occasionally. I went to the doctor and she took a culture and it ended up being a vaginal bacteria. She gave me a cream called metro gel and it went away. Yet i just finished my period and it seems to be back. So I made an appointment to check it again. I'm so concerned its something else that they may have missed. I'm so worried to go again. Has anyone else experienced something like this?

Re: Vaginal and anal itching

It's common for women to struggle with vaginal issues that are due to bacteria. It's usually due to hormonal/PH changes in the vagina, and this commonly occurs around menstration. There are certain things women can do to combat this.....cotton underwear, eating yogurt, acidopholis (spelling) pills, not useing douches or feminine sprays, ect ect ect... Sometimes antibiotics can bring on bacterial issues, and ocassionally reoccuring bacterial vaginitis can be a symptom of diabetes. Talk to your Dr.

Re: Vaginal and anal itching

This can also be caused by wearing tampons, if you do you should try to change them every 4 hours. good luck
