So, let me give you a breakdown of my symptoms first. This problem started 3 - 4 years ago but it is not constant. Sometimes I can go months without any problem and all of a sudden, my lower labia, vulva and vaginal opening all become extremely inflammed, sore, itchy and almost dry feeling. The itchiness can be unbearable but scratching only makes the symptoms worse. What calms the inflamation is creams such as canesten cream or sudocrem. It is not thrush or bacterial vaginosis as I have treated myself with the pessaries and 7 night cream multiple times over with no result. It is definitely something external, because my discharge is entirely healthy and normal. I have been to so many doctors to try and find a prognosis but they don't seem to know either or will hand me yet another prescription for thrush and bacterial vaginosis treatments. Only one doctor ever was able to help. She examined my vagina and took samples from it as well as from under the clit hood. She gave me antibiotics of some sort but never actually told me what was wrong with me, and for a year the problem vanished. Now it is doing it yet again and I am losing my mind trying to figure out what is wrong with me. The waiting list for the gynecologist is months long. Have any other women been through this hell and if you have, did you manage to find any workable treatments?
