Hi all, I hope this message may help some of you. I too was diagnosed with a high culture of group b strep and experienced the most unbearable itching for months. Once I was diagnosed and read all these comments I immediately thought this itching was something I would be dealing with for years, I kept on at my drs who wouldn't believe that group b strep could cause symptoms of itching until a dr suggested I could have vaginal eczema. I was prescribed antihistamines, a steroid cream and a special soap to wash with and I can now tell you that the itching has completely stopped. I believe the eczema was somehow brought on by the group b strep, although my dr will not confirm that. I wanted to share this with you ladies, although most of these posts are very old and may not help/ reach you now, but as an alternative route, this might be something you ladies may like to explore with your drs. I feel all your pain and hope my story might help you too.
From a very happy ex group b strep sufferer.
Good luck and I hope if any of you do read this, you will update me as to how you get on.
PS if anybody asks, I will give you the exact meds my dr prescribed.
