Vagina Burning Remedies
Home Remedies To Ease The Burning

Before you can identify which are the best home based vagina burning remedies that will work for you, it is important that you know what cause the burning and itching.

Vaginal burning is seldom an issue by itself. There are many factors that contribute to vagina burning.

Menopause, STDs, bacterial vaginosis, vaginal yeast infection, chemical irritants in swimming pools, douches and feminine hygiene products, semen are all contributory factors for vaginal burning.

To determine that vaginal burning is not caused by BV, yeast infection and STDs, it is essential to see an obstetrician.

If the mentioned infections are ruled out, then pay attention the next time the burning occurs. Is it caused by dips in swimming pools, the vaginal hygiene products you are using or does it happen after sex?

Once you have the cause identified, it will be easy for you to choose the right vagina burning remedies.

For menopausal vaginal dryness, home based vaginal burning remedies may not be the most suitable choice.

Vaginal moisturizers, ST Virgin cream and manjakani tonic pills are the right products to use for burning due to vaginal dryness. Besides alleviating dryness in the vagina, these products are painful intercourse solutions too. They also help to heighten sexual sensations for both partners.

If you have no problems with vaginal dryness or vaginal tone, these home based vagina burning remedies might help:-

Sitz Bath

A sitz bath is taken in a sitting position with water covering only the rectal and genital region.

Choose a tub that will be comfortable for you to sit in and can hold enough water for you to submerge your bottom. Add half a cup of apple cider vinegar to the water and soak for about 20 minutes.

Vaginal burning due to BV and chemical irritants in douches are caused by a disruption in the vagina environ. The normally acidic nature of the vagina becomes more alkaline. Soaking in the apple cider vinegar water helps to restore the vaginal pH to its optimum level of 4.5 to 5.

Cool Bath

If you have deduced that the cause of your vagina burning is due to non-infectious viginitis, then soaking in a cool bath with either baking soda or Epsom salt added will solve the problem.

Non-infectious viginitis are vaginal irritation due to scented soaps, fragrant feminine wash and douches and allergic reactions to chlorine in swimming pools and semen.

Add half a cup (or more, depends on how much water you are filling the tub with) of either baking soda or Epsom salt to the long bath. Relax and soak in the bath tub for at least 15 to20 minutes, after which you flush the vagina with water to further remove the remaining irritants.

Ice Packs

For this home remedy you need to put some ice cubes in a small zip lot bag and dab it on the vulva for 10 to 15 minutes. It works well for burning caused by chemical irritants.

Tea Tree Oil(Melaleuca Oil)

The strong anti bacterial properties of tea tree oil is suitable for burning caused by bacterial vaginosis, yeast infection and trichomoniasis.

Take note that tea tree oil is to be used Externally only. Use it as an external rinse for the genital region - a few drops to a a cup of water.

Or you can use it as a suppository. Saturate a clean tampon in a mixture that contains a few drops of tea tree oil with 2 teaspoon of vitamin E oil and insert into the vagina.

Tips for Preventing Vagina Burning

  • Limit the use of scented pads and toilet paper, feminine sprays and talcum powder in your intimate area.
  • Avoid using soaps to cleanse the delicate lady parts. They are harsh, causing irritation.Your intimate area needs a pH balanced cleanser or probiotic wash which protects against harmful bacteria and fungi. 
  • Avoid douching as it disrupts the vaginal flora.
  • Avoid hot tubs, swimming pools and bubble baths as these facilities may contain chemical irritants.
  • Always wipe from front to back after bowel movement.
  • Wear cotton panties so that the genital area can breathe and change it daily. Stay away from thong underwear as the strings cause more chaffing to the already sore vagina.

If the burning does not subside after a week of using the above home-made vagina burning remedies, do not delay seeing a doctor to rule out other causes.
