    Hi, I have the burning, but it comes and goes. Recently the left side started itching, but not all the time either. I went to the dr. and ran all the tests, but nothing. I found that PH refresh helped. It is in the same section where you would find ky jelly. First, go to the Dr. to be sure it isn't anything like an infection. Good Luck

    hi there, I had this a couple of months back. I'm perimenopausal, still have regular periods and don't have noticeable dryness. I used bag balm of all things.... and it cleared it right up. I'm not sure if its recommended, but I was desperate and it helped so I will definitely try it again if it comes back. hope you get relief soon!

    if you think it might be a ph problem, bathing in either baking soda or vinegar will bring balance. if that doesn't help (it should though)...putting oatmeal in a sock in your bath until it is gooey and using it to wash the area will also work for irritation. i often used it for kids diaper areas...and I use it for me for any itchy skin disorders
