Then there was the woman who suffered menopausal itching around her navel and vagina.
One reader suggests the homoeopathic remedy Sepia 30C, which supposedly can balance the hormones. She could also try Urtica Urens tincture from Bioforce to help treat the body’s histamine reaction. In the meantime, cut out all sugar and refined carbohydrates, and take omega-3 fish oils.
One woman has treated her menopausal itch with an antifungal cream for athlete’s foot, but we suggest you don’t put that on your vagina.
Finally, try some cypress oil in the bath, which also helps with haemorrhoids (no, it’s not the chap from Bangalore).
