I don't know if it's yeast, bacteria, or what.
I'm wondering if it's a reaction to putting things up the woohoo that I heard about on internet etc., but for which there was no solid evidence. So one thing I used was Evening Primrose Oil capsules.
I also used ProMeno Women's Wild Yam Cream, but I think it was supposed to be used on the skin, not on mucus membranes. However, I've used it for a fairly long time, and haven't had side effects.
Its ingredients are: wild yam root, vitex, comfrey leaf, extra virgin olive oil, flower hydrosol, aloe vera juice, beeswax, shea butter, Natural MSM, Vitamin E Oil, and a blend of essential oils and flower essences.
I did use the latter around the vulvar area, but as I said, I've been using it for quite awhile, and haven't noticed any reactions. That being said, I wonder if such a severe irritation could happen gradually, over a period of time? I think the essential oils might not be so good in that region.
I also use "Vital V," but I've used that for years and years with no side effects (and this one is meant for use in that area).
I know a lot of people say to use hydrogen peroxide for bacterial vaginosis, but I think it would irritate inflamed tissues. I have borax, and I already used the one-dose thingie for a yeast infection to no avail (so far).
What else can I do, and what would you do for a vaginal allergic reaction? Would garlic oil help? I have plenty of that.
