I am 21 and currently i have been having this itch and swelling on my vulva for about 4 months now. I feel really depressed because of my condition. I have seen 2 GPs previously and both diagnosed me with yeast infection. I was given 2 rounds of yeast infection medication. Then i was referred to a gynae as my condition was not improving. She told me it was might be due to ezema and gave me cream that contains corticosteriod. The cream helps alot but when i wash it away, the itch will be back. On days, the itch was bearable and sometimes it will suddenly flare up. I have difficulties sitting and walking as it makes me so uncomfortable. I tried changing my diet, underwear, wear loose clothing but my symptoms still persists. It is worse when my period is over and dies down a little after a few days.
I really want to get my life back and just wondering if it is alright to have sex (the itch and swelling is around my vaginal opening)? And is there anyway to make me feel comfortable when walking ? I do not want to use the steriod cream frequently as i am aware that it has a thinning effect on the skin.
