  1. These remedies are useful. However what can be done for itchy genitals. There is no infection etc, just an itch where the pubic hair ends.

    1. I think if you try shaving as much of your pubic hair of and applying cold water, this will do the trick but DO NOT put cold water inside the genitals (If you are a girl) Ad this could dry it out and make it worse.

    2. Actually, there is an infection called foliculitis and it causes an itch at the base of the pubic hair. I had it when I was much younger. Can be caused by shaving, then not drying the shaver between uses, or using another’s shaver. Any remedy that is antiseptic, like a vinegar or lemon might work, also colloidal silver might be good. Careful to stay to hairy skin, as the mucous you skin is very sensitive.

  2. these tips are really helpful. most of the things are available at homes generally. specially the apple cider vinegar one. it burns a bit at first but then the itchy part soothes.thanks for all the tips.

  3. I have itching since last two week. my skin is dry. I used pears or glyfresh soap as my physician for dry skin. take shower with mild warm or Luke warm twice a weeks. rest day I shower with cold water.

  4. lemon juice very good

  5. Comment:
    Thank u so much
    It’s bn months, the itching never stops. Now am going to the market to get lemons

  6. I have being itching for a year now”So much in pain. And Doctors medication not helping out.Will try this remedies “So so much in pain “

    1. I spent 57yrs itching with eczema and I got rid of it by changing my diet, I became Vegan and within 3mths the itching was gone and that was 9 years ago.

  7. I’ve had itchy genitals for more than 8 months but the doctors’ prescriptions and anti-fungal creams don’t help. I will give you a feedback after I used all your recommended remedies.

  8. I have itching on my back, stomach and side, especially just before I go to sleep and when I am sleeping. I use foderma serum, and it definitely helps a lot. It reduced or eliminated the itching. So if you have a problem like this, I highly recommend it!

  9. Both of my forearms, the underside, itch very badly. I keep a spray bottle of vinegar beside the bed and spray the arms as needed. It isn’t immediate relief but if I can keep from scratching for a few minutes after spraying the itching gets better. I also treat the area with tree tea oil which seems to help also. I have scratched some areas until they bleed and then some. Use the vinegar solution, grit your teeth for a few minutes and the itching will subside. Hope this helps some of you.

  10. I’m hoping this works fairly quick because right now I have the most intense burning itch on my face thanks for the ideas

  11. My itching seems to move around, started on my lower leg crepy up t my knee, started then on my elbow, then around my navel and finally on the cheeks of my butt, it,s really bad and I have torn the skin and as I take blood thinners, looks like I have been attacked, I am now drinking hot lemon water and rubbing the lemon straight onto the skin, helps for a little while, I also use medicated powder, over the counter creams which I find totally useless.

  12. i have been having a very intense itchy skin after taking a shower.
    kindly advise on what i can do to get rid of this issue
