Question: Vaginal Itch with NO discharge


 Beckers7 - Mon Nov 17, 2008 11:59 am

I have been having intense vaginal itch for over a week. I went to the doctor and he asked for my symptoms and prescribed an antibiotic and a six day cream. But, it is day 5 and it feels worse. It is very red, almost raw and I just want to keep scratching! I have also been using vagisil to try to help with the itch, but nothing seems to be working. If it was a yeast infection, I think it would have responded to the medicine, right? ALso, there is no discharge or smell, just itching. Any help or advice would be appreciated.

User avatar Hello,
Perhaps there is a hypersensitive reaction to something. Try an allergy medication (antihistamine) and give your doctor feedback on your lack of progress in this.

Best wishes.
