Customer Question
Hi, i am 29...

Hi, i am 29 weeks pregnant and have had an itchy vagina on and off for the whole time of my pregnancy. I have used thrush cream and it hasn’t helped. When I just showered the wAter felt like it was burning the area. i just want to know what to use to relieve the symptoms. Will calamine lotion help.

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with this? Does anything in particular seem to make the itch better or worse?

For at least 12 weeks, after I shower it feels better but when I sleep it comes back

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I had a uni a about 3 weeks ago and had a course of antibiotics for it, that seems to have made it worse

I feel better already! Thank you.

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.
