[YEA] 12/17/2013: Relieved from Fresno, Ca: "I have suffered with severe external vaginal itching for the last three+ years. Initially I thought it to be vaginitis, but nothing abnormal was present and all tests came back negative. Luckily I work in a lab and did my own lab tests cause I could not believe nothing was wrong. It was specifically the discharge that was causing the irritation, (itching only on the outside). My OBGYN and NP could provide me with no real cause stating that everything looked clean and healthy down there. They could only give me some suggestions. For the last three years I tried doing my own research and came on this site repeatedly trying to find relief but everything only worked temporarily and then not at all. I tried LB cultures, yogurt, change in diet, ACV, honey, baking soda, hydrogen peroxide, folic acid, , everything minus bleach, , , lol. I came to the conclusion that these things only worked temporarily because they were simply diluting the causing agents in the discharge. It made no sense that all of a sudden this would occur. I love watching Dr. Oz and one night decided to see if he had any info. on the topic just for the heck of it. He had mentioned my condition specifically and suggested Vit. D. It was the first I heard of it as a remedy. Skeptical, I tried it anyway. I am very happy to say that I am now taking Vit. D3 supplements twice a day, on a daily basis and the itch has been 100% gone. It has been over a week that I have found relief, longest ever in 3 years. I will continue this for a few more weeks and see if it is still gone then. Though I know this won't work for everyone, I hope that those with my same situation will also find relief. I have regained my intimacy with my husband and can focus on daily tasks!!!"Replies
