Why am I experiencing vaginal itching?
Q: I am a 20 years old girl experiencing vaginal itching and irritation for the last few days though I am still a virgin and not sexually active. I tried using tampons of curd and powder but it gave relief just for a while. The problem started when my periods got over last week the problem. I don’t get any discharge though sometimes slight sticky liquid come out. What should I do?
A:From your symptoms, it appears that you may have a yeast infection. It can happen in the absence of sexual activity. You may try over the counter antifungal /anti-yeast preparations like Miconazole, fluconazole etc. These medicines are available for vaginal application. When you start these medicines, please finish the whole course. If your symptoms persist, you will need to see a gynecologist.
