Vagisil Maximum Strength Medicated Anti-Itch Creme is a topical product that helps reduce itching and burning in the female genital area, as the Vagisil website explains. The product targets discomfort that results from discharge, antibiotic use, pH imbalances and various vaginal conditions.
In addition to providing quick relief from feminine burning and itching, Vagisil creme also forms a protective layer over the irritated skin, soothing the area and lessening the chances of additional irritation, notes the Vagisil website. The product also contains ingredients that block odor.
Benzocaine is the main ingredient in Vagisil creme responsible for providing relief, according to Drugs.com. The ingredient blocks nerve signals, providing a numbing effect.
