Hi my clitoris is very itchy and it burns a bit. What can I use?

It started yesterday and I but a cold rag and it stopped for a while but it still feels inflamed

Hello,

Welcome and thank you for the question.

Itchy and inflamed clitoris can be due to an infection or due to an allergic reaction .

Please use Monistat ointment, available without a prescription twice a day. Also use Vagisil ointment once a day to decrease the burning. Vagisil is also available without a prescription.

If the itching and burning continues after 2 days, please consult a doctor for an examination. You could have a STD known as trichomoniasis.

I sincerely ***** ***** I have helped you, and that I have earned my 5 star rating today!

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.
