However, if your symptoms last more than 7 days you should consult a doctor immediately.

What does it mean when you have internal vaginal itch?

This can be caused by irritation, vaginosis; which is a bacterial infection or vaginitis; also called a yeast infection.Another cause can be trichomoniasis although many women get no symptoms from trichomoniasis it can cause a yellow, green, or gray vaginal discharge (often foamy) with a strong odor.Bacterial Vaginosis can cause a strong odor and discharge, The discharge is usually thin, grayish white and is described as a "fishy" odor.Vaginitis or yeast can cause a thin to thick white, wet discharge that is itchy or dry clumps internally, that causes the irritation, there is usually no foul odor with yeast.All of these can also cause discomfort during sex and when urinating, irritation and itching in the genital area.Trichomoniasis can usually be cured with the prescription drug, Flagyl or tinidazole.Bacterial vaginosis treatment can be oral Flagyl, Metrogel, a vaginal gel or Cleocin, a vaginal cream.Miconazole nitrate cream 2% (AKA Monastat OTC) cures yeast infection but does not stop the source which leads to reinfection.Vinegar and water douche can reduce the irritation from yeast, when used along with live lactobacillus - acidophilus tablets, twice a day - should solve the problem. This reduces the over-growth of candida in the gut, to prevent reinfection. Use only when infection is present, garlic tabs can be used daily to prevent re-growth.
