    Re: One after the other- and now its severe vaginal itching

    Did you talk to your doctor about this?Probably it is yeast infection that is common during pregnancy.Nothing to worry and it won't affect the baby.

    Probably your gynaec will prescribe Monistat(Vaginal applicator cream).I used Equate 7 day treatment Miconazole .It is a vaginal cream that comes with applicator ,you can use it both internally and externally.Talk your gynaec and see what she says and then use any of these.

    Hi Ladies,

    Thanks for your valuable suggestions. I have my GP appointment only tomorrow. But the good thing is that I am feeling a lot better now. I did clean with warm water a couple of times, had cranberry juice and lots of water , its a lot better now. Itching has stopped too.I doubt if its because of heat because now right below my left breast I have got heat boils which burns.

    Anyway I am going to GP tomorrow morning, so hopefully if she answers all this, that will be helpful. I'll keep posted.

    Regards

    I can suggest a simple home remedy which really works.
    Add a handful of salt to luke warm water and wash the areas with this water 2 to 3 times a day. Dont pour ordinary water after that. This is what i do when i get it and it really helps. If your infection is not so acute this will definitely cure it.

    hi all,

    Thanks for your suggestions again. Went to my GP yesterday and she just asked me for symptoms and told it could be thrush, a yeast infection and gave me a cream.I am just hoping it gets better soon :bang

    HI ladies,
    Vaginal itching sometimes is quite normal during pregnancy. But there may be a chance of Urinary Tract Infection causing this area. So, be more hygenic and examine thoroughly with your Gynic and increase water intake. This will surely help.

    Hi Prettywomen,

    May I know what cream is that? I have also been asked to use 2 different creams(one outer area & another inside vagina). But since few days am not seeing yellow discharge or itching so I did not buy cream.

    hi Anithapartha,

    Good to know you are getting better now. I was given a cream called clotrimazole cream 1% which is for external application only. It feels better when applied and needs to be applied atleast 3 times a day.

    Now I am a bit better but still have the white milky discharge and also have itchiness when the cream is not applied.

    Regards

    Severe itching with burning sensation and dscharge can be yeast infection. I was given a prescription medication (not a topical cream - kind of like a suppository) and it went away.
