Hello- for 18 months ive had on & off itching sensations in my vulvar region. They occur in the upper thighs, inner vagina (where a tampon would be), pubic hair region sometimes, but mostly in the lips of the vagina. It is basically all day every day on and off. Sometimes it feels like a stinging senstation. Not painful, just annoying. I also tend to feel like I need to urinate more, and it feels raw to the touch sometimes. I havent had intercourse in months because the last time I did, it felt uncomfortable.
When it started, I was told I had yeast by my OBGYN. So I took diflucan, monistat, even inserted boric acid suppositories and yogurt. Months went by seeing 5 different doctors and besides an occaisional diagnosis of Yeast or BV (treated with Flagyl) they didnt have any ideas. I had them do cultures 3-4 different times since then, for chlamydia, gonorhea, trich, yeast and BV. All of them came back negative multiple times. Last june my symptoms came back bad. I went to my PCP and had blood work done for HIV, herpes, and a ton of other things. My blood sugar levels, etc. Everything came back normal. Im 23 years old so I'm certain it couldnt be a hormonal issue, but I'm running out of ideas. I've taken probiotics, changed to all unscented soaps and lotions, etc.
