I'm a T1 too and am in a similar boat with having them almost constantly. I found using the feminine hygiene wash helps a little. You're probably best asking your DSN to see if they can suggest anything.

It's the ups and downs of living life this way. Promise me you'll never go away. Just stay with me through one more night because it's always darkest before the light and now I promise you I'll never turn away. I won't let you give us one less heart to break...

Are you taking preventative measures such as not using scented soaps and toiletries down there and wearing cotton underwear? Some women also find that eating yoghurt helps their symptoms, natural yoghurt is also soothing on the itch, but make sure it is natural and un scented





Reality leaves a lot to the imagination

This needs to be discussed with your diabetic nurse and/ or your GP really as well as, like Heidi says above, look at other methods. I'm unsure whether eating yoghurt will help; some people will find natural yoghurt may help there symptoms but that's not everyone and eating it probably makes no difference apart from having a healthy diet. However, being a diabetic, controlling your blood sugars as good as possible will reduce the severity of other problems though that's not always easy or, in fact, possible.
