Hello, My name is Dr. Greg. I am a U.S. trained, board certified physician, and am happy to assist you with your health concern today. Please allow me a few minutes to read and respond to your question.

 

I'm sorry to hear that you are suffering from vaginal itching. Based upon your symptoms, you most likely have a yeast infection. Yeast is caused by fungus and can infect the inside of the vagina and skin around the vagina. You can cure this type of infection with over the counter medications (i.e. Monistate or Vagisil). You can find these medications at any local pharmacy. I would recommend that you pick up one of them. If you are not feeling back to normal after completing the treatment, I would recommend that you see a doctor who can examine you and prescribe medications. I hope you feel better soon.
