Namechanged for obvious reasons. :(

My minge is itching like buggery. No discharge/whiffiness, just a very itchy vulva (as per namechange Wink) Have done a Caneten pessary on saturday and been applying the cream but nothing is working.

Suggestions please? And don't say "wash yer minge" Wink

'Zat you, Bupcaks?

StealthPolarBear · 16/01/2012 13:03

are you allergic to something new? soap?

Namechange didn't work then Grin

Tea tree oil works well- sprinkle a few drops on knicks- or dilute and wipe vag

Oh what a spectacular namechange fail

bless you Bups.

BupcakesandCunting · 16/01/2012 13:05

Namechange should have been "VeryItchyVulva" :(

I do wash my ladygarden with shower gel. I know they say just water but, well, ICK. It just doesn't feel fresh when just washing with water and no I'm not trying to get rid of my natural lady scents, I just feel DUTTY RANK when have only washed my vadge in water.

Tea Tree oil works, but I don't know if it may burn a bit if used neat like that.

I would have a coolish bath with a few drops in, and slosh about a bit.

BupcakesandCunting · 16/01/2012 13:05

Oh yes tea tree oil., Got some of that. Do I just sprinkle it on me flaps?

I use Johnsons Baby Wash. It's much milder and works for me.

I am not laughing at your vagine, btw

I am tres amusant at your namechange fail

SuePurblybilt · 16/01/2012 13:07

I really would not put neat Tea Tree on your flaps Grin. Really.

skirmish · 16/01/2012 13:07

I sprinkle it on some tissue and dap it on- has a cooling effect for me but I may have a non sensitive vagine Grin

Gawd no.

It will sting like buggery and MrCunting will think he's gone to the vets.

HellonHeels · 16/01/2012 13:09

FFS stop with the shower gel! Shower gel makes my 'normal' skin dry itchy and scabby god knows what it's doing to your vag.

I know what you mean about not feeling OK with just water. Plain unscented soap would be better and be careful to rinse it off properly.

Pascha · 16/01/2012 13:09

Oh go on, put neat tea tree oil on. And report back under your usual name Smile. Actually I do think the porridge bath is a good idea, though don't actually make porridge with it.

Stop washing your bits with soap of any kind. Wash the rest of you with shower gel and let your bits get clean with water and whatever bubbles happen to fall down. It's a (mostly) self cleaning area. Obviously not advocating leaving it to skank away but you know what I mean.

Could also try natural yogurt. Any possibility of having threadworms? cos apparently lots of women think they have thrush and it's actually worms that have crawled into other places

BupcakesandCunting · 16/01/2012 13:10

I haven't been on antibiotics but am feeling knackered (DS has the chickenpox, haven't had sleep/proper food) and I used to get thrush as a teenager at times of peril i.e exams/being dumped/being grounded etc. Haven't had it in years. The Canesten cream relieves it for a bit but then the itchy flares up again, like a London derby :(
