Women throughout their lives are bound to suffer at some point from vaginal itching. Itching around the vaginal area can be caused by sweat or exposing the vagina to irritants. Feminine hygiene pads or tampons can often be a cause of irritation. Feminine sprays, douches, and topical contraceptives are also very common chemical irritants that may cause itching and discomfort.

Suffering from vaginal itching is a pretty uncomfortable and awkward situation. It can be caused by many things including tight clothing, laundry detergents, sweat, soaps, and creams.

After thoroughly reading customer reviews, we can say that there are mixed results regarding this product. Some women reported a reduction in itching, while others said they felt no difference. Additionally, if the burning and itching sensations are caused by chemical irritants then using a cream that is made with strong chemicals may cause your symptoms to get worse. If the cause of your itching is a yeast infection, then this cream will only mask the symptoms. We recommend using a more natural, gentle type of product especially for sensitive and intimate parts of your body.
