Since all women have experienced vaginal itching at some point in our lives, it is important to know the possible reasons and, when in doubt, go to the gynecologist.
Itching vaginal is a common disorder affecting many women at various stages of their lives. It is often the result of infections due to an alteration of the pH balance of the area, but there may be other causes. In this video, we discuss them one by one!

Waxing:
There are many hair removal methods that cause vaginal itching. This is because the skin in the vaginal area is very sensitive and can trigger an allergic reaction.
Razors and even creams can cause great irritation to the skin and promote the appearance of buried hair that becomes infected.
It is recommended that you do not wax very often. Doing it every 15 or 20 days will give your skin time to recover. In the meantime, you can help him with a cream indicated for the area that calms the irritation.
Sexually transmitted diseases:
Vaginal itching can also be caused by sexually transmitted diseases. But you should not be scared; this happens very rarely. This is stated in this study carried out by the Junta de Andalucía (Spain).
In most cases, these diseases are asymptomatic in their early stages and usually manifest with foul-smelling secretions and pain.
Still, women with an STD may experience vaginal itching as one of the first symptoms.
Generally, if it is an STD, you will be able to notice a set of other symptoms. In the case of herpes, in addition to causing vaginal itching, it can promote the appearance of small red bumps in the area.
Herpes is one of the most common and widespread STDs that, although it does not usually lead to serious consequences, must be treated in time to avoid possible chronic sequelae.
Vulvitis:
This is the medical term for vulvar irritation. According to this study by the pharmaceutical company MSD, it can be caused by:
• The use of soaps with aggressive chemicals for this delicate area.
• The use of toilet paper with dyes or irritating compounds.
• Roughness when washing in the shower.
• The prolonged use of bathing suits or gym clothes.
One of the best ways to avoid vaginal itching caused by vulvitis is to wash your intimate area with warm water and a special soap for the pH of that area.
It is also recommended to avoid using vaginal deodorants, powders or other products that contain strong chemicals.
Skin problems:
Psoriasis or eczema are another cause that can lead to vaginal itching. It affects not only the skin of the vagina, but also various areas.
Because it occurs in several areas simultaneously, it is easy to detect when eczema is the source of the itch.
If you suffer from this condition, you must consult with a general practitioner or your gynecologist for proper treatment.
When psoriasis affects the vulva, low-strength topical corticosteroids and mild moisturizers can often help.
Menopause:
The lack of hormones caused by menopause can trigger the natural pH of the vaginal area to rise to values close to 7, when it is normally around 4.7.
This is because the epithelium of the vagina thins, and its thickness is reduced.
All this causes the lactic acid bacteria that maintain the acidic pH to disappear, and the area is exposed to infections.
Medical tests usually show that the vagina is pale and thin. According to this study carried out by the University of Medical Sciences of Villa Clara. Symptoms such as painful urination, burning, itching, and pain or bleeding during sex may occur.
If your gynecologist recommends it, you can take estrogen-based treatments in creams, tablets, vaginal rings, or skin patches.
See your doctor if you notice vaginal itching:
First of all, don’t panic or self-medicate. Go to your gynecologist for a clear diagnosis and appropriate treatment for the cause of your discomfort in the vaginal area.
If you experience any of these symptoms along with your discomfort, then this is highly recommended:
• Vaginal discharge
• Fever and pain in the pelvic or abdominal area.
• You consider yourself to have been exposed to an STD.
If it is an infection, then the combination of symptoms could be the following:
• Sudden changes in the amount, consistency, odour, or colour of the discharge.
• Itching accompanied by redness and swelling in the genital area.
• Vaginal discharge in girls who have not had puberty.
• A suspicion that the symptoms derive from the use of a medicine.
• Increase in symptoms or duration greater than a week despite using home care methods.
• Presence of blisters or lesions on the vagina or vulva.
• Burning when urinating.
If you experience vaginal itching, it is very important to rule out infections or other serious causes. If you have these symptoms, you should contact your gynecologist.
