Q: I have an insanely itchy vulva and sometimes a rash that just won’t go away no matter what I try. I’ve been to three different doctors, including one who specializes in itchy vulvas, and I’ve tried every antibiotic, antifungal, steroid cream, pill, boric acid, etc. I’ve even cut back dramatically on sugar. (Not easy for me!) Nothing helps — I’m at the end of my rope. What could be going on here?
