The Best Home Remedies to Cure Feminine Itching
"Itching "down there" can drive any woman crazy. "Down there" is the vulvovaginal area and anything from wearing tight clothing, to a vaginal infection like trichomoniasis can cause uncomfortable, even painful itching. Having an itch is not about being dirty or having poor hygiene. As you can see below, there are many common causes for it.
What makes an itch not an infection? Non-infectious vaginitis is described as moderate to mild itching often accompanied by irritation. But it's still enough to make you miserable. Everyday causes can be the culprit:
* Wearing certain clothing -- anything tight -- such as pantyhose, thong underwear, too tight underwear, tight jeans can trap moisture which can cause itching * Wearing synthetic materials next to the skin that don't let skin breath * Wearing a wet bathing suit * Excess perspiration * Your period, wearing pads or pantyliners, the hormonal fluctuations of your menstrual cycle * Allergic reactions to soaps, detergents, spermicides, condoms and deodorants * Vaginal or vulvar dryness (often experienced during menopause) * Sexual activity * Dermatological causes like eczema and psoriasis."

[YEA] The ACV(apple cider vinegar) worked wonders. Nothing else worked and I used the Destin like cream as well this worked also. It is amazing how that ACV worked it took a few weeks but I am very happy that the Vaginal Itch is gone. I will be trying the cayenne pepper for maintance. Truly I need to monitor what I eat also.
I do not use anything with a scent soap detergent dryer sheets this has made a difference as well. I used the measurements suggested in the artical.
