My wife gets itchy feelings on her clitoris and inside her…

Customer Question
My wife gets itchy feelings...
My wife gets itchy feelings on her clitoris and inside her vagina at times. Sometimes this happens when she washes with scented soaps. This always happens when I (her husband) gives her oral sex. Sometimes it happens if we use Coconut Oil and then have sex and the Coconut Oil gets inside her. Sometimes if she takes a shower quickly afterwards it makes it better but doesn't fully take all the itchiness away. It can still take 2 to 3 days to clear up. If she doesn't wash it can go on for a couple weeks and it drives her crazy until she has to go to the doctor to get some anti-fungal tablets. She says it is a overgrowth of yeast called Thrush or Candida.Is there any way to prevent this from happening so that she doesn't have to be uncomfortable?

Hello and welcome to Just Answer. I looking forward to assisting you with your question and providing excellent service. I doubt this is an overgrowth of yeast, but sounds more like allergic vulvitis. Avoid scented soap, dove sensitive is a good choice. Be careful prior to oral sex. Brush teeth and rinse well. And never use coconut oil. Its very allergenic

Well, I do brush my teeth well before oral sex. Can you explain more what allergic vulvitis is? We are already doing what you suggest. Is there any further ideas or treatments? Is there any type of soothing cream or anything that would be helpful before oral sex or after? Any other idea?
OB GYN Doctor: Dr. K., MD replied 7 months ago
It is an allergic skin reaction. Coconut oil is the worst thing you can use. A cream will make things worse.

Ok, if Coconut Oil and Cream would make things worse, is there anything that would make it better?Would a some KY jelly make it better?Is there any good direction to go? Because we are washing afterwards and brushing teeth well. If not, ok. Just doesn't seem to be any answers except what we are doing.thanks.
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
One other thought. Would olive oil be better than KY Jelly? Random Thought, but probably the wrong direction. Just thought I would ask. Tks.
OB GYN Doctor: Dr. K., MD replied 7 months ago
No NOT at all. Olive oil is a food product. Its difficult to get pure olive oil in this country. In addition any oil will be impossible to eliminate from the vagina. I believe it is the coconut oil causing her issues. WATER based lubricant is best

Ok, thanks for that. It was another OBGYN from the Just Answers web site that suggested it.Did you have any thoughts on KY Jelly?Could it be anything else besides allergic vulvitis that we could research?
OB GYN Doctor: Dr. K., MD replied 7 months ago
I think the ky is water based and is ok. The only other condition would be vulvodynia

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

Well, a couple days ago i felt i was coming down with a yeast infection. This was a couple of days after sex (both my bf and i are std free). And 2 days ago my labia started to swell. Now both labia and my clitoris are swollen. There is no foul smell and minimal discharge but it is REALLY uncomfortable and unsightly. I was self treating with home remedies I've succesfully used before for YI (tea tree, coconut oil, lavender, ACV). I have no fever or other symptoms. My extrnal.labia are fine. It's just the sensitive mucosa membrane bits that are VERY swollen. It has never happened before. I am wondering if i just irritated the hell out of it with home remedies. I have nothing down there now but some OTC 1% hydrocortiso cream. It is much less itchy/burning than yesterday, but still swollen. Help! This is so embarrassing:/ … read more
