Is vagisil okay to use for itching?

6 posts in this topic

I've heard to stay away from hydrocortisone but I didn't know if vagisil would be okay for itching. I don't think that I'm having another genital outbreak but for some reason I've been having some intense itching. I don't have a discharge or odor so I don't know what's causing the itch. I applied it earlier and I feel alot better! Just wanted to see if anyone has heard anything negative about vagisil and herpes.

Hey I realized that I have that also.....I've come to terms that as long as we have genital herpes.....well have serverr itching at times......its so devastating trust I know that.....I did buy vagisal n it didn't really work because my cllitoris was itching but u can't put vagisal on it or really internal as it will burn......The best thing that works for me is The Zinc Oxide cream n Or Bacitritian and Zinc combined from Duane Reade Buy those two n put it on in the morning before u head out. N take a shower at night n put it on before u go to sleep........Hope this helps

Intense itching is horrible. I get it a lot. I have tried several things, but I never had the itching inside the labia like that. Vagisil is supposed to help with itching inside the labia as well, not sure why it burns you...maybe you scratched yourself raw? (Ive done that)

Monistat also helps with itching, but it is more related to yeast.

Other remedies I have used OUTSIDE the labia are Lanacane, Purell, after sun GEL with lidocaine, and more recently ( and WITH GREAT RESULTS) Tea Tree Oil. I apply a drop or two on the labia in the morning and at night. It has a smell to it, and it gets hot like menthol... butthe itching is VERY sporadic now!

Hope you have good luck with your itching. *hugs* :flowers:

Thanks guys for the help! I've been putting pure aloe vera gel that doesn't contain alchohol and it seems to be working just great :) The vagisil seemed to work at first but as I put more on it seemed to worsen so I just used the aloe vera gel and it works much better. It's made by Fruit of the Earth if anyone is interested. I'm also considering buying tea tree oil because I've heard alot of positive things about it.

      Thank you for the information! I have some questions for you, if you can take some time to answer, it would be greatly appreciated. 

      Yes, I was planning on getting the Western Blot if my 18 week IGg is negative. How did you take yours? My clinic cannot order the test for me they said.

      The person I was with has HSV2 but is getting retested to see weather she has type 1 too since I received a blowjob. She has said that she has never had an outbreak on her mouth, so probably not type 1. 

      30%  don't show in tests? where are you going that number?

      I have heard of the ABVIC test. Any idea when it will come out?

      I have seen two doctors and both said that they would be surprised if it was herpes. I saw one 3 times and the other 6 times. I have not had a classic outbreak to swab, but I had lots of redness and irritation in the genital area and every other symptom out there. I made my Dr. prescribe me Acyclovir 5.5 weeks in, I took for for 4.5 weeks, never really seemed to help. But it is only 400mg, I realized everyone is taking 1000mg Valtrex, so a few times at night when I feel my legs burning I will take 2 pills at once. I wake up fine, but than again I usually do. Also my Dr. prescribed me Gabapentin and that gives me great sleep.  

      Has anyone ever heard of antivirals like Acyclovir skewing or prolonging positive test results?

      Where is 100 day number from ?
    • dont quit!
      Stay positive and don't think too long. As the saying goes, you think long, you think wrong! You will mature and learn from this. Just within this last year my best friend has a brain lesion that essentially has him in a vegetable state and my sister is battling breast cancer. On top of that my son is going through some health issues as well. So stay up, research and educate yourself. Everything is going to be ok. Also this disease isn't something I would wish on my worst enemy but there are far more effed up situations. I work in a hospital and I see them everyday. It's hard but continue fighting!

      Yes I said that above. The point is that it may only be 2 or 3 of those days out of 15 for example when you can actually infected someone due to enough copies of the virus being present.
    • dont quit!
      Trials from beginning to end cost close to 1 billion dollars and if phases pass and go by smoothly then with a lot of luck we may have this within 7-8 years. That's if it works and everything goes perfect! Yes, I know it sucks but that is a very realistic scenario. I mean it's the FDA, a government agency that is naturally going to twiddle their thumbs. Let's just hope Trump doesn't get elected into office and start slashing government funding and or gets us in WW3.

      i thought for type 1 it's only present about 15 days 
    • WilsoInAus4
      Yes it is. The main issue is that there are more days in a year when the virus is present, I think up to 100 days a year. Again, the majority of these are extremely unlikely to infect.
    • Sarahbby28
      Is that even with type 2

      Each copy of the virus has a tiny chance of getting through the skin's defences and infecting a nerve cell. With too few copies of the virus, the probability of all them failing to reach a nerve cell is very high.
