    Hi did the gp also tell you to keep of sugar and foods with yeast in as well, plus dont use perfumed shower gel or soap to wash the area either. Wear cotton under wear pant liners if you use them, make sure they have no chemicals in them either as all irritates. Look for natural ones such as natra care. If your sexually active make sure your partner wears a condom as this can be passed back and forth between partners as well but men dont seem to get the same symptoms as us, at least my hubby never complained. Gp told me he was probably passing it back to me. Had years of the wretched thing before i realised.
