call your dr. even if the office is closed, they should have an answering service. Call and ask to have a nurse or your dr. call you back. they will ask you to explain what's wrong and will probably be able to give you some remedies you can do over the phone. good luck.

soak in a tub with baking soda or epsom salt, as long as you haven't lost your mucus plug yet, i'm not sure if its safe once you have, i think its fine, but i dont want to tell you it is for sure! wear a skirt and cotton panties, just keep it dry. for instant relief wipe with a cold wash cloth or ruub with some ice, that always helps me with the itching. my doctor told me not to use anything like monistat, though my best friends doctor told her that was fine. i wouldnt do it though. i'm not sure what else to tell you, as long as its that medicine causing ir and you stay on the medicine it won't go away, you can just do what you can to make it a little more comfortable. good luck!
