I've heard to stay away from hydrocortisone but I didn't know if vagisil would be okay for itching. I don't think that I'm having another genital outbreak but for some reason I've been having some intense itching. I don't have a discharge or odor so I don't know what's causing the itch. I applied it earlier and I feel alot better! Just wanted to see if anyone has heard anything negative about vagisil and herpes.
