The itchiness is mainly focused in the area between my clitoris and urethra, although both can start itching if I scratch a bit. If I rub at my clitoris to relieve the itching, the tip gets VERY red and inflamed. I've noticed some swelling of my inner lips as well, close to the vaginal opening.
I figure I have thrush or some kind of yeast infection. I wanted to get Monistat but they all suggested I see a doctor first (I don't have any doctors nearby, all my doctors are at home, a 3 hour drive away that I won't be making until Thursday).
Anyway! My question is: I bought Vagisil Satin anti-itch creme but it says it's for external use only. What exactly is external? Can I use it on the area that actually itches, around my urethra? Can I go and get one of those Monistat treatments despite not being diagnosed?
ETA: Thanks for the comments everyone! I went ahead and used the Vagisil where I needed it. It stung for a while but when it FINALLY worked, I've been itch-free for hours. Except now I feel like I have a mild UTI coming on (pressure in my bladder that feels like urgency--I get this often) but at least I don't want to tear my vagina off of my body anymore. :P
