10 Remedies to Relieve Vaginal Itching

homeopathic medicines for vaginal itching

Vaginal itching is an uncomfortable symptom that can be the result of an infection or irritation. While mild, short-term vaginal itching is not a reason for concern, it can sometimes become painful. But in severe and persistent cases of vaginal itching, a gynaecologist should be consulted to rule out the cause of it. Homeopathic medicines for vaginal itching are of natural origin that aim to treat the root cause of the problem and give long term relief.
Vaginal itching can arise from skin conditions, infections, STD’s (sexually transmitted diseases) and chemical irritation. Certain skin conditions including eczema and psoriasis can also lead to vaginal itching. Then there are certain yeast and bacterial infections of the vagina that can cause persistent itching. Certain sexually transmitted diseases that can cause vaginal itching include genital herpes, chlamydia, genital warts, and gonorrhea.
Another common cause of vaginal itching is irritation of the skin around the vagina due to the chemicals and perfumes that may be present in soaps, douches, ointments, creams, tampons and feminine deodorants that are commonly used by women in everyday life. In most cases, identifying the irritant and discontinuing its use can help treat the problem.
Diabetes mellitus, menopause, and stress can also contribute to vaginal itching. Along with itching, a burning sensation and eruptions on genitals along with discharge from the vagina may also be present. These symptoms vary from case to case.

Now my external symptoms of lichen sclerosus have reduced, i. e., my skin colour is almost returning to its normal colour with a light layer of white skin present still. My tears of the skin have healed. But my itching is still very intense in the vulva it is very stressful. It is constantly itching very vigorously throughout the daytime as well as night time. What shd I do? There is no Homeopathy clinic in or around my area. So instead of Homeopathy medicine suggest some home remedy that I can do.
