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.

[YEA] I just wanted to say thank you for the ACV cure. I have been trying all the over the counter stuff, but NOTHING would stop the itch. So I did the Apple Cider Vinegar bath with 2 cups acv and 3 tsp of epison salt. It worked for the most part. I followed it up with applying the acv on a wash cloth and then applying directly to the outer part of my lady area. The pain was intense!!!! But about 5 minutes later I am pain and itch free. At this moment, that's all I can ask for!! Thank you!

[YEA] I started having itching the last two weeks of the month. I am a 48 yr old female. Two days ago I started taking cayenne pepper capsules cause I take them during the week of my period - it has stopped the horribly long and very heavy periods I was getting, I went from 10 days to 4 or 5. But I didn't expect it to take away the itch and dryness!
