7. Kefir

kefir cup

Kefir, a fermented dairy product rich in probiotics, is an effective home treatment for vaginal itching and related symptoms.

The wide variety of probiotic bacteria, particularly lactobacillus and bifidus, in kefir help get rid of the yeast and bad bacteria that cause vaginal infection and itching. This drink also boosts your immune system to prevent infections.

  • For a vaginal infection, dip a tampon in kefir and insert it in the vagina for two hours. Do this twice daily until you get rid of the problem.
  • Also, drink 1 to 2 cups of kefir daily for a couple of weeks.

8. Honey


Unpasteurized honey is another effective remedy to stop the itching. It has antibacterial and antifungal properties that help get rid of any microbial infection that could be causing the problem.

  • Apply unpasteurized honey as an ointment on the affected area. Leave it on for about 30 minutes, then take a bath in warm water. Repeat at least twice a day until the symptoms improve.
  • Also, eat 1 to 2 tablespoons of unpasteurized honey with a glass of warm water twice daily.

  1. I think I might try the ice…..this just started happening with regular itching for like 3 days and idk Joe much longer I can take this I am constantly going to the bathroom to resituate my pants and things I hope this works…pls work

  2. I’m 62 and was on iv. antibiotics for 3weeks and then oral which I’m sure caused my vulva to itch. This is the second time in six months. I’ve been lucky never had this problem before but its excruciating especially at night and when you’re out somewhere. I have a beside table full of creams even tried nappy rash cream vagisil wash and feminine itching cream and ice and aloe Vera gel with only temporary relief so I’ll be trying the salt water and apple cider vinegar now.I also went to a doctor three times and was prescribed canasten and steroid cream, it’s difficult to get on top of. Sometimes simpler things are the best. When I stopped recieving the antibiotics the first time it eventually went away itself but it took ages as is now so I’m definitely going to give this a whorl. There is no discharge just redness,itching, a strange sporadic needly pain and slight swelling. I wouldn’t wish it on my worst enemy. It’s like chilli in your pants. Thanks

    1. I could have written this myself! I had pneumonia in the fall, had IV antibiotics and went home with more antibiotics. I have used three Monistat creams, Metrogel, and terconazol to cure or prevent a yeast infection. I have a drawer full of prescription creams, i.e. nystatin ointment, triamcinaolone acetate, betamethasone, etc, etc, etc. Even Vaseline and coconut oil burns. Baking soda sitz baths burns. My new gyn told me to use Replens and that made the burning 10 X worse! I have stopped using everything and I feel a little better, but by the end of the evening I am burning again. I had no problem like this until I took those dang antibiotics.

  3. I absolutely hate this!! Been suffering with it for about 3 years and it hasn’t gotten bad until now. The rash has now reached the bottom on one side of my butt and I now see that I’ve got some swelling. I did stay using neem oil and that was working really well, but I wasn’t consistent. If anything on these remedies, you have to be consistent until it goes away permanently.
    I’m gonna go back into using the neem oil and hope that it’ll clear things up in a few weeks. Nothing is worse than getting intense itching in public 😪
