Re: chronic vaginal itch for months no discharge

itchy: What about your laundry soap? Have you changed brands? That could be an irritant down there. Any kinds of changes in soaps can irritate you. Have you tried getting some probiotics?

Are you sexually active? If so, and you're using condoms, you could be allergic to them or if you're not using them you could be allergic to the sperm. Allergy testing should be done to make sure you're not allergic to anything.

Do you use tampons? They could be a problem, too. You just might be overly sensitive to alot of things. The jeans could be an issue if they're too tight.

Do you take baths or showers? If you're taking alot of baths then the water will get up there and cause excess bacterial growth. It doesn't get rinsed well. The other thing is swimming pools, chlorine or even bacteria in beach waters. Keep looking for answers. Get more opinions from other doctors too.

Re: chronic vaginal itch for months no discharge

I have been dealing with vaginal itch for over 5 years now with no answers. I have seen drs, gyno drs, and a dermatologist and no one has been able to help me. I just had an appointment with a new gyno and he used a vinegar like wash on the area and it turned white...he said this indicated I needed to have the area biopsied. I go back this monday for a follow up appointment and to see when the biopsy will be. I was kind of shocked so I didnt ask any questions, but I will on monday. If I find out some answers I will post here as to what he says.

Re: chronic vaginal itch for months no discharge

It started when I was pregnant with my son, I had gestational diabetes so I figured it was a yeast infection for sure. But it came back neg. It has been an on and off thing for 5 years, I might itch in the morning than be ok for a bit then maybe again at night...it comes and goes during the day and for some reason it has been less for the last 8 months since I moved to a different city (drier climate)


I will let you know how it goes...I am thinking my dr is going to biopsy it for something called VIN (Vulvar Intraepithelial Neoplasia)

Re: chronic vaginal itch for months no discharge

I did go to the dr, but the receptionist forgot to book me in...even though I had a card with my time on it filled out by her so I didnt really get alot of time to ask questions...But I am going in for Laprascopy (sp?) on July 13 and they will do a biopsy at the same time. My gyno also thinks I have endometriosis and I having a mirena IUD put in.

Did the dr say what the skin condition was? did they do the vinegar wash?

Re: chronic vaginal itch for months no discharge

I have used so many creams over the last 5 years that I dont even remember what I have used anymore

You should look up VIN (Vulval intraepithelial neoplasia) and bring this up to your dr so it can at least be ruled out.

Re: chronic vaginal itch for months no discharge

My biopsy went ok (so far, I dont have the results yet...I get them on the 29th) I had 4 done 3mm deep, I am still recovering from them, I was put under as I was having the other surgery so I didnt feel them at all and I am surprised there has been no pain or stinging at all even when I pee. I did rip one of my stitches so its taking longer to heal but all seems well so far...I am still very itchy though...probably partly from healing.
