Vagisil Anti-Itch Medicated Wipes are medicated individually wrapped wipes. They help relieve exterior vaginal itching and burning. The wipes have an odor blocking formula and are flush-able. These wipes are useful for vaginal itching associated with yeast infections, bacterial vaginosis, as well as itching caused by clothing or chafing. The wipes do not cure or treat a vaginal infection and should never be inserted into the vagina. They are however very helpful during treatment for yeast infections and bacterial vaginosis. Vagisil Anti-Itch Wipes can be used in conjunction with yeast infection suppositories/creams. Check with your doctor first before using them with treatment for bacterial vaginosis.
I began using Vagisil Anti-Itch Wipes when I started getting yeast infections after my period ended every month. I used them in conjunction with the 7 day suppository treatment. They are also great for anal itching. Some women experience itching around the anus during a yeast infection in addition to vaginal itching. Just be sure to either use separate wipes for the anus and vagina area or wipe from front to back with the wipe. My doctor later prescribed Diflucan to be taken once a month at the end of my period. Although this seemed to help keep the infections away, I still experienced an itching sensation for a few days at the end of my period. I continued to use the wipes because of this and they provided much relief. They are discrete and easy to carry. I found they soothed the itching and burning sensation immediately, and I never experienced any irritation. Usually towards the end of my period the odor down there is stronger and the wipes also helped with that. Once I stopped having yeast infections, I didn’t use the wipes for a while. Then one day I was experiencing some chafing in the vaginal area due to sex, and I bought the wipes again. I wasn’t sure if they’d work on this type of iritation, but they did. This is a wonderful product. You don’t have to deal with the mess of an external anti-itch cream.
I’ve heard of some people using these every day, but I would be hesitant to do this simply because I don’t like the idea of using something medicated on my vaginal area every day. The active ingredient is Pramoxine Hydrochloride, which is a topical anesthetic. My only concern would be that it might become less affective, if used every day. Experiencing vaginal itching on a daily basis is a sign of an underlying condition. It’s best to seek the advice of a doctor if this is the case.
Vagisil Anti-Itch Medicated Wipes cost between $6 and $7 for a box of 12 individually wrapped wipes. I consider that reasonably priced, considering they’re medicated and provide such great relief. You can purchase these wipes online or in the feminine hygiene section of most drugstores, grocery stores, and superstores.
