Common causes of vaginal itching include:

  • Chemical irritants -- such as detergents, fabric softeners, feminine sprays, ointments, creams, douches, and contraceptive foams or jellies.
  • Menopause -- the drop in estrogen causes thinning of the vaginal wall and less lubrication.
  • Stress -- may increase vaginal itching and make you more susceptible to infections.
  • Vaginal yeast infectionVaginal yeast infection -- often includes a discharge that is white and curd-like. Vaginal yeast infections can be brought on by antibiotics, birth control pills, pregnancy, menstruation, condom use, sexual intercourse, diabetes, and a weakened immune system.
  • Vaginitis Vaginitis -- inflammation, itching, discharge, and odor caused by other infections (including sexually transmitted diseases). Vaginitis in girls before puberty is common. If a young girl has a sexually transmitted vaginal infection, however, sexual abuse must be considered and addressed.

Other possible, but less common, causes of vaginal or vulvar itching include:

  • Certain skin conditions affecting the vulvar skin, some of which may be precancerous
  • PinwormsPinworms (a parasitic infection mainly affecting children)

  • Avoid feminine hygiene sprays and douches.
  • Change out of wet clothing, especially wet bathing suits or exercise clothing, as soon as possible.
  • Cleanse the area by wiping or washing from front to back (vagina to anus) after urinating or having a bowel movement.
  • Eat yogurt with live cultures or take lactobacillus acidophilus tablets when using antibiotics. Check with your doctor.
  • Keep your genital area clean and dry. Use plain, unscented soap.
  • Keep your blood sugar under good control if you have diabetes.
  • Lose weight if you are overweight.
  • Wear cotton panties or pantyhose with a cotton crotch. Avoid panties made from synthetic materials. For infants and toddlers, change diapers often.

    If you have bad vaginal odor it is highly likely that you are suffering from bacterial vaginosis. Caused by an imbalance of the natural ph levels in the vagina, the symptoms include a gray/white discharge with an offensive smell along with itching and burning. Many women suffer from repeated attacks over a number of years as conventional medication simply masks the symptoms. The best way of completely eradicating this condition for good is by using natural treatments.

    I am 19 and have had recurrent bacterial vaginosis for almost a year now. I have been going to the doctor regularly for the past 4-5 months to be treated for it. I was wondering if there was any way I could possibly prevent or treat it at home with over the counter medicines or anything else because I cannot afford to keep going to the doctors every two weeks to keep getting medicine.
