Causes of Vaginal Itching

Aug 17, 2007
Vaginal itching can be a terrible thing and something that most women would prefer to avoid like the plague. Unfortunately due to any number of reasons this just isn't possible. Many women suffer from vaginal itching and at the most unfortunate and uncomfortable of times as well.

Since it's not exactly possible to go around itching your vagina in public, most have to settle for suffering in silence, or resorting to a little flexing of inner muscles in the hope that some relief can be had.

For some women the vaginal itching is so unbearable they have to seek relief in anyway possible, and this might involve a quick trip to the ladies room to give in to a bout of maddened itching.

Relief for vaginal itching can come in many forms, but one of the easiest things you can do is to use some Aloe Vera to help you. If you're able to use some fresh Aloe Vera juice and apply to the affected area. You can either use your fingertips to do this or you can soak a piece of cotton wool in the juice and apply it that way.

Alternately for itching, you can also use powdered Slippery Elm bark. This will need to be purchased from a store which sells herbs. Mix this powder with a little water to form a paste and apply to the affected area much as you did with the Aloe Vera juice.

Another good remedy to put a stop to unbearable vaginal itching is to use a yogurt tampon. Dip the tampon into a tub of unsweetened yogurt and then insert into the vagina.

Alternately you could freeze some yogurt in the fingers of disposable gloves, and use these as frozen yogurt tampons which you would then insert into your vagina.

You also have the option of using a vinegar sitz bath to relieve your vaginal itching. You will need to fill the bathtub hip deep with water and add half a cup of apple cider vinegar to this. Sit in the tub with your legs widespread until the water has cooled.

Or you could try using a Tea Tree oil soaked tampon instead. You'll need to use an applicator tampon to make this easier.

First coat the top half of the tampon in a lubricant of your choice, then add a few drops of Tea Tree oil to it, and insert the tampon into the vagina. The lubricant was added merely to stop the Tea Tree oil from soaking into the tampon.

By using these home remedies you can make vaginal itching a thing if the past, along with those secret flexes and grinding of the pelvis into the seat as you change position, as are mad dashes to the ladies room.

All of these have been proven to work to stop vaginal itching, but if you feel the need please consult your physician before embarking on the usage of any one of these remedies.
