[YEA]  I have struggled with vulvodynia for five years now and through my desperation I think I have finally found something that works. I have tried everything imaginabled from prescriptions to remedies on this site and it is always the same story, it works and then one day it flares back up and I lose all hope in a miracle cure. Recently baking soda was that cure for me, when it didn't work anymore I was in so much pain. I was desperate! I used an ice pack to try to get the swelling to go down when I woke up in the middle of the night the ice pack had busted open and I had tearing, sores, and swelling. As crazy as it sounds I had a natural beeswax chap stick that was peppermint flavored sitting beside me and I thought, that will give me a cooling sensation and I wont have to worry about a bag of ice busting... Hmm why not? It burned pretty intensely for about a minute but it was a cool burn so it didn't bother me.

I was able to get some sleep and when I woke up all of the tearing, sores, and swelling were GONE! I kid you not! I was so excited nothing I've tried worked that quickly before. I don't really know why it worked but I have continuously applied it twice a day. Haven't had a flare up in over a month since doing this. I don't think it really "cured" anything, I worry if I stop it I could have another flare up. It did however stop the pain and keep it away since I've been using it. I've also been going to the chiropractor, stopped my birth control, and am taking herbal adrenal support remedies to help balance out my hormones. I've been doing that for about 6 months now and I feel it has helped tremedously but has not cured me yet. It does seem to slow down the frequency of flares I do have so I feel I am on the right track but for immediate pain relief the chap stick 100% took care of the issue. I hope this helps someone!

[YEA]   You are AMAZING!! This really works. I have been in a flare that has been absolutely miserable for two weeks now! This morning I tried making a paste with baby oatmeal bath, left it on for 15 minutes, got a shower, and when I got out I air dried and then used Beeswax with Vitamin E and Peppermint. You're right... It does burn for a little bit, but the relief is unbelievable! This Thanksgiving I am thankful for you, your post and peppermint beeswax lip balm :)

[YEA]   I'm going to try this! I have one questions though. I looked up the spirulina and they have different milligrams available. Does it matter if it is 500mg or 1000mg?

I am desperate to try anything. After 30+ yrs of suffering and also anal burning (the last three years) I want to die.

The number of doc's I have seen is unreal and now my current gyn wants me to see a specialist in Pittsburgh (21/2 hr drive). I am skeptical as I really don't think she will have an answer and yet afraid not to go.

I found a gyn who was knowledgeable and she put be on amitripiline for nerve ending pain. I have had some relief during the years and have no idea why but the lastest episode has lasted for 3yrs (and mostly active! ). I have seen 2 gyn's, a colon/rectal specialist (levator syndrome????), have had P.T. both externally and enternally to no avail. I am a now 68 yrs old and not a happy camper. I am going to try to use some home remedies listed on this site. Wish me luck and thank you for this page!!!

There is talk about vulvodynia being an allergy. I currently take 1 10mg elavil a.m. and p.m. along with 25 mgs of benadryl and the pain of the general vulvodynia has stopped. It's been 2 months.
