    Vaginal Scratch
    HippyShay posted:
    Ladies, have you ever had a vaginal scratch, and if so, how did you heal it? I hadn't realized I broke a nail and after using the loo, wiped and scratched the very inner fold right before my vagina. That was about 5 months ago and it seems to be going through a process of ALLLLmost healing, then coming back with a slight pain, irritability, and slight itching. I am unemployed and cannot afford to see a Dr or would done so sooner. Any suggestions, advice, comments? Thanks bunches!!

    Might be a infection... Its always better to go to doctor.

    Since u cant afford to get medicinal help, try this home remedy (But im not sure how effective it is):

    Apple cider vinegar is another popular natural remedy for vaginal infections. Combine a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar with two cups of water and add a fresh clove of garlic. Allow the solution to stand for some time and then use it for douching.

    This may be done once every day until the infection goes away.

    I suggest biting the bullet and see your Dr about this. 5 months is plenty of time for a normal scratch to heal.
