    I don't have hpv but I am currently in treatment for recurrent vulvar cancer.  Mine stems from Lichen Sclerosus which causes burning and itching.  Most often corticosteriod ointments are precribed to reduce the itch of LS.  Sitz baths help a little especially if it keeps you awake at night.  But, your doctor should not be ignoring this - itching is the main symtom of vulvar cancer!  Since it'...

      I'm sorry you are having to go through this.  I have recurrent vulvar cancer.  3 surgeries and radiation, looking at chemo next.  This facebook group has been so comforting and helpful.  It's a closed female only group, so you can get as personal and detailed as you need with any questions.  Group name is:  Cervical Ovarian Vulvar All Gynecological Cancers
