Have you ever had moments where the area around your vulva and vagina itched a lot and you didn’t know how to make it stop apart from, well, scratching it? If you find yourself doing the latter absent-mindedly or not, stop. You’ll irritate the area even more.
This is a common problem for many women, but don’t worry: itching has to do with vaginal infections that can be treated. We put together a list of helpful tricks to follow when you’ll feel the urge to scratch your lady parts again.
See a doctor
Before you try to calm down your irritated vagina and vulva on your own, you should make an appointment with an obstetrician-gynecologist. Nothing beats a trained professional on this subject. The doctor you choose will have the correct diagnostic for you, then recommend the sort of treatment that will solve your itching.
With so many types of vaginal infections around, knowing which one you have will make it go away faster before inflammations kick in.
Cold compresses are your friend
In case you have to wait a couple of days for your doc’s appointment and you need something quick to alleviate the itching, place a cold washcloth around your vulvar region. If that doesn’t do it for you, try an ice pack with a towel around it. The coolness will make you feel better in a matter of minutes.
Look for other symptoms
Ob-gyns like it when a patient takes note of the symptoms he or she experiences during a particular health issue. The more, the better, because the doctor will then know how to approach the problem and what treatment to apply.
Which means that you need to take a closer look at your vulvar area whenever you have the time. In case the itching happens on the outside, look for rashes or sores. If the itching is on the inside, see if you have a discharge that smells literally like a fish. Should you experience one of those, don’t be quick to assume it’s a yeast infection. Your doctor will know better.
Taking off your panties or G-strings when you’re at home will feel awesome when you have an annoying itching down under. Opt for baggy clothes that will let your vajajay take a breath of fresh air. Besides, wearing confining underwear for hours on end is going to irritate your vulva and vagina more and more as each day passes. Go commando until you see your doc, it’s worth it!
Don’t listen to ads
There are so many gels and creams on the market claiming to solve your vaginal itching. Listen to professionals and stay away from them. It’s just cheap marketing and they won’t help in the long run. Quite the contrary: these products will irritate your lady parts even more.
These local anesthetics you see in ads are only meant to numb the pain temporarily. They won’t treat the kind of infection you really have. That’s for the obstetrician to solve.
See where your actual itch is
Many ladies complain about vaginal itches, but what they really mean is vulvar itching. It’s not at all the same issue. The external tissues which make the vulva include everything you have on the outside. Your love tunnel is something you can’t actually see, it’s on the inside of your body.
The next time you feel something starting to itch, figure out if it happens on the inside or the outside.
We hope our tips will be of help. Remember to always consult a professional if you have a health problem, dear escorts. Don’t listen to ads on the TV, the radio, or the Internet. An ob-gyn is your best friend 😊
