I have taken hydroxychloroquine for 1 week and developed vaginal burning & itching. Have not had anything like this in the last 13 years before I had my hysterectomy.
Its not too likely that its the medication. You may need to see your gyne, it could be related to low estrogen.
I can relate my experience and every time I'm on Plaquenil I have an itchy labia. Goes away when I stop or forget to take my pills.
Yes maam! I started this medication almost a month ago and I am starting to have the same reaction- vaginal burning and irritation. I don't normally have vaginal irritation and now all of a sudden I am. The only other thing I have started about a month ago is prednisone, but i only take about 21/2 mg now. So I don't think that its prednisone.
