  • itching!

    Every month around the time of my period I get severe vulvar itching! No yeast...No infection. Can't get it to stop. Any suggestions. This is my worst symptom. I would take peeing 40 times a day over this.
    Diagnosis: IC '09, vulvodynia '10, fructose intolerance '06, GERD '06, fibromyalgia '09, IBS '10 and TMJ '09, PCOS '11, genital herpes '12

    Current Meds: Butrans patch, welbutrin, lamictol, geodon, xanax, aldactone, linzess, topimax, trazadone and diflucan as needed.

    Meds tried before: Elmiron, elavil, antibiotics, welbutrin, cymbalta, prozac, nerve blocks, instills, nyastatin, flexerol, percocet, naproxen (which was what I was given for pain for years).

    I had a friend who would wet a tea bag and place it on the irritated area and it helped. If you try this, be sure you just put it against a small area until you're sure it's okay --- and be ready to rinse it off if it's not.

        She just said a tea bag --- I assumed it was a regular Lipton one. I hope it helps. She didn't say what temperature, but I think cool might be more soothing.
