Vaginal itching

The vaginal irritation and itching in the region can cause a lot of discomfort which can even lead to rashes and other similar problems, if not taken care of in the right time. Thus, the infection should be cured soon before it causes more problems.
Some of the few basic home remedies for vaginal itching are:
# Sanitizing clothes: The most basic reason of vaginal infection and itching is the dampness in the clothes which increases the fungal activity in the vagina. Thus, you should most primarily wash your clothes well and sanitize them thoroughly in antiseptics.
# Select your clothes specifically: When selecting your clothes, make sure that you select the ones that are comfortable and not too tight. Also select cotton underpants over the other materials.
# Buttermilk: Drink a glass full of lukewarm buttermilk every day before going to bed at night. This helps in curing the infection and also preventing its relapse.
# Warm bath: Have bath in warm saline water. This will help you to destroy your bacterial infection and prevent the itching in the infected region.
# Avoid sexual relation: During the infection, it is best to avoid any sexual relation as it can probably transfer the infection to the other partner and later might again affect you.
# Tea tree oil: Tea tree oil is known to have anti-fungal properties. Thus, you can take about two to three drops of tea tree oil on a tampon and place it inside your vagina overnight. This will simply stop vaginal itching.
# Yogurt: Even yogurt is another way to cure the infection. Thus, you can dip a tampon in yogurt and then place it in the vagina. Repeat the process for about 3-4 times and continue it until the infection is completely cured.
# Apple cider vinegar: another home remedy for vaginal itching is the use of apple cider vinegar. Wash the affected region with apple cider vinegar properly to prevent the vaginal itching and thus cure the infection.
