Red face Miserable and need relief

I am suffering from raw, itchy, BURNING vagina. I sit down like I just gave birth to a baby. Feels better after taking a bath, but I would have to take 6 baths a day to feel better. What do I need to do? Is it just age and the horrible drying of the vagina, stress, or what? How can I feel better?

Re: Miserable and need relief

Sounds like bacterial vaginosis. It is NOT an STD. It is an imbalance of bacteria down there. Normally the vagina has good and bad bacteria, but in bacterial vaginosis (BV) the bad bacteria overtake the good and cause itching and burning. You'll have to see your doctor, and they will test for it and give antibiotics.
Hope you feel better soon!!

Re: Miserable and need relief

Hi,
It could be Thrush (Candida) or it could be Hormonal related.
You should see your Dr who will do a Vaginal Swab to diagnose the problem. If its either one of these both can easily be treated.
Candida treatment is cream and Vaginal Pessary and if it's Hormonal and you just need treatment for that area a Vaginal HRT Pessary inserted once/twice a week will solve the problem.
Good Luck, I wish you well,

Solofelix.
