IneedAsockamnesty Wed 03-Oct-12 20:09:25

And natural yoghurt.

Is it an allergy then? Hydrocortisone cream?

Vagisil. Over the counter cream at the chemist. I often get sore during my period and just before it arrives. Went to the docs and was told its down to hormone levels rising. Drives me mad some months then other months it's fine. Cream is brill and very soothing. Go and get some as soon as you can and I use always towels with silk. They are great too. I feel your pain. An itchy fandango is no fun. X

Is it thrush? Itchy and dry

McHappyPants2012 Wed 03-Oct-12 20:12:23

yes, it will act like a cold compress.

KeemaNaanAndCurryOn Wed 03-Oct-12 20:14:14

Ooh, poor you.

Sudocrem if thats what you have in. Get some thrush cream in the morning.

Getting something cold may help as well.

I second natural yoghurt. I had this once (due to thrust, though) and felt like a dog with worms - had to keep "discreetly" (i.e. not at all) itching myself on the edges of chairs. Most uncomfortable.

If you have some old cotton pj bottoms and old knickers I'd just wear them and leave off the towels ... unless of course you're bleeding is literally flooding out of you. I always find towels irritate me and as my flow is very light overnight I often leave pads off completely and wash all the stuff together the next day.

AViewfromtheFridge Wed 03-Oct-12 20:15:05

Oh god...THRUSH! Although the thrusting probably didn't help.

wannabedomesticgoddess Wed 03-Oct-12 20:23:47

Thrust grin

And Im now imagining you humping chairs to get itch relief shock grin

IneedAsockamnesty Wed 03-Oct-12 20:25:07

i havent thrusted with anybody in over a year, not even myself grin but by god it itches.

im sat on some frozen peas

Olive oil. It's miraculous (and you will probably have it in the house). I burnt my vulva by mistaking athletes foot cream for thrush cream. For several days. It was red, swollen, peeling, itching so much I could have gladly rubbed a microphone over it... Olive oil soothed it all down and got rid of the persistent thrush as well.

Northey Wed 03-Oct-12 20:30:44

A microplane. Not a microphone. Hurrah for my vulva, but I'm really not sure it has much to say to me.

mumblecrumble Wed 03-Oct-12 20:37:10

Dear christ, don;t use vagisil!!!! its does dreadful things to you lady bits!!1

IneedAsockamnesty Wed 03-Oct-12 20:42:30

right im sat on peas, and have covered my bits with olive oil.

so far no chair thrusting just a bit of squirming

wannabedomesticgoddess Wed 03-Oct-12 20:42:35

I was really boggled as to what use a microphone would be grin

GoSakuramachi Wed 03-Oct-12 20:46:36

Don't put sudocreme on! Trust me, been exactly there, it makes it worse. Cold yoghurt is good, ice too. Don't put anything with even a vague scent on it.

Do you have any antihistamines? They might help
