Is vagisil okay to use for itching?

Recommended Posts

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.

      If you've never had any symptom I expect you prob have HSV1 from childhood and not genitally.

      I have hsv1, i got off of birth control about  9 months ago, so i dont think this can still be hormonal acne. Why is this happening too meee. Its just getting worse overtime and ive had this happening for a good 3 weeks now just getting worse and worse. They are mostly on my cheek area, but i will get occasional single pimples around hairline or forehead . This is the worst its been! Anyone else have had this issue ? Its gross

      yeah, I got HSV from him and HPV . I'm pretty sure the HPV is from him too but no way to be 100%. I have never tested positive for that before though. The coincidence is too much.   How to trust somebody?? I really don't need any more gifts.

      Since he has given your H then I advise you to make sure that  he's not giving New gift this time  ( another lovely virus) otherwise have sex as you like but not with ob's. I say that because it happened with so many people and I don't want to mane any. Thanks

      I'm so confused! My IgM was positive yesterday and today I found out the IgG test came back that I am negative for HSV2 but showed evidence of IgG for HSV 1 (she said I needed to retest in 3 months).  I've never had ANY symptoms ever. So do I tell people I have genital herpes or do I tell them I just have cold sores virus?  I have no way of know if I have it on my mouth or below! What do I do???

      Another thing a high count might indicate is how far back you were infected.  It's possible that over time your body keeps developing more antibodies to keep the virus replication in check.
