For when it itches.
I am aware that this topic is kind of… touchy. If you are having an itch down there, it’s your own problem. You must have been doing something wrong: bad hygiene, unprotected sex, bad diet… right?
I have experienced severe itch and pain in the intimate area throughout pregnancy. I know exactly the cause: Candida albicans. But no therapies, probiotics, diet corrections or proper hygiene gave long lasting results. Using any product, however efficient or good it was, would give me a day or two of relief, and then it would come back. My hormonal state and stress levels have obviously made me a very good host for thrush.
Needless to say that it was a disaster for my sexual life, as well as causing discomfort and sleeplessness for most of my pregnancy. So there, not much I can do, apart from applying clotrimazole over and over again. On several occasions, doctors and nurses have just recommended waiting: “It will get better once you give birth”. Well, thanks.
It might sound ridiculous, but… living with constant itch (which you can’t really scratch when you’re among people) is a torture!
So I decided to treat the symptoms, not the cause.
And, trust me: there is no better thing for vaginal itch relief than Multi-Gyn IntiSkin.
It’s a nice little bottle, suitable for a girl’s bag (admittedly, my bags are mostly laptop bags, full of cables and gadgets, but the size of the bottle still matters!). The spray is also very good: you can hold the bottle under any angle and spray a very fine aerosol that doesn’t leave traces or stains on your underwear.
But, what’s more important: it stops the itch instantly and for a couple of hours!
It’s completely natural and can be used in pregnancy.
I am usually not a symptoms treating person. Whenever possible, I would attack directly the little buggers that caused the infection, or would go to great lengths to correct my own diet and lifestyle in order to deal with a certain condition. However, sometimes this is the only option left.
So, here’s my conclusion.
I would recommend Multi-Gyn IntiSkin to women with vaginal itch and irritation of which the cause is not known, or to those who are already treating the underlying condition with a proper treatment, but want a fast itch relief.
