I have my period and I wear pads, sometimes the pad drys out my entire vagina area and it itches like crazy. Last night I woke up at 4 a.m. and couldn't take it. All I had was some left over yeast infection creme. It actually helped, but I'm not sure if I can use that on a regular basis. Kind of like you shouldn't take antibiotics unless you actually need them?Is it ok to use an antifungal cream for itching not associated with a yeast infection?
If there isn't a fungus, an anti-fungal cream isn't going to help. Try something like benadryl or hydrocortisone cream.
