This is embarassing to talk about and probably TMI but I'm hoping to find out some info. For about the past 4 months I have had really bad itching down there on the labia majora (the skin that is covered in hair on the outside of the vagina.) No itching on the inside like a yeast infection would be, only on the outside. And it's not all over. It's only on the right side. At first it would happen just every once in a while but the past few weeks it has been itching horribly every day. I thought that maybe somehow a yeast infection could move to the outside skin so I used monistat on the area for seven days and it made no difference. I have also tried Vagisil and made no difference. Some of my pants that I wear to work were a little tight so I thought maybe that was causing it so I bought bigger pants a month ago and it didn't change the itching. I haven't noticed any bumps or anything down there. Just the extreme itching. I try not to scratch b/c it's such sensitive skin but it itches really bad overnight and I think I scratch it in my sleep and now it is so sore. I googled it and all these articles about vulva cancer came up and now that has me scared to death! Anyone experience this ever? My annual gyn appointment is in 6 weeks but I'm thinking about calling and trying to get an appt sooner b/c I am really stressed.
