Cease and desist that urge to itch! Please don’t automatically assume you have a yeast infection as you run with your Cranky V to the local CVS for some over the counter Monistat or Vagisil. You create an uphill battle by playing doctor and missing a true diagnosis—treatment is delayed and your vagina may become so angry and painful that your Cranky V is all you can think of. Over the years the most painful vaginas I’ve treated are those suffering from what is called the “itch-scratch” cycle. Fragrant body and laundry soaps, sanitary pads, and stress are some of the main culprits.
