How can I stop the itching?

Recommended Posts

Expat

I was diagnosed two weeks ago and had symptoms for a week before that. I saw the Dr. last week and she said the internal sores were healed. I don't see any more on the outside either. But the itching just keeps getting worse. It's absolutely unbearable, and no cream I've used seems to help. I know some suggest a bath but I don't have a bathtub. Any other ideas?

I use an ice pack, the gel ones you keep in the freezer wrapped in a face cloth. It soothes and distracts me from the itching for a bit. Maybe it will help you get at least a little bit of relief. I've never had them inside though...thats awful...I hope it clears up quickly.

I just had a thought perhaps the herpes has upset all the happy, good bacteria...natural yoghurt works for thrush and really helps the itch. I doubt it would do anything bad...and if it is super itchy any thing for bit of relief, eh!
