Only a handful of things in life could be as uncomfortable and embarrassing than vaginal itching. Regardless of the cause, it is the most painful form of itching. You feel a persistent urge to itch your private parts – the vaginal area – and cannot do anything about it even when you have to leave the house. You just sit there and somehow try to deal with the discomfort caused due to it- and act all normal to avoid embarrassment. You may just find yourself fidgeting here and there, hoping to find at least a little bit of relief from the itching; like a small child who needs to use the restroom but is not allowed to by his kindergarten teacher.
However, the good news here is that there are so many natural home remedies for the situation that can help you get rid of the itching and discomfort. You will never have to step out of your house feeling uncomfortable again!
Below are some home remedies that you can follow to get rid of the painful vaginal itching:
2 Cold Compress
- One of the other very effective ways to deal with or cure vaginal itching is to chill the skin. A cold compress does wonders when it comes to this. Since this is quite a delicate area we are talking about, the area with a potential for bodily fluids, make sure you use a disposable ziplock bag filled with ice and covered with a clean cloth rather than using a regular ice pack. It is suggested so to avoid any further bacterial or dirt intervention that may worsen the situation. You could also wrap some ice cubes in a clean cloth and put this ice pack on the area where it itches the most for a few minutes. Repeat this remedy every thirty seconds.
- Do this until the itching goes away. You can also splash some cold water on the skin but that could be risky considering how long the water stays on the skin. To avoid further irritation, make sure you dry your skin completely afterward.
