About Vaginal itching

Back to the top

Vaginal itching may be caused by irritation, infection, or hormonal changes. While many instances of vaginal itching are not a cause for concern, the symptom can be a signifier of an underlying health condition that requires treatment. Common causes of vaginal itching include:

  • Bacterial vaginosis (BV)
  • Yeast (fungal) infection
  • Irritation from soaps, feminine sprays, detergents, creams, condoms, spermicidal gels, and more.
  • Sexually transmitted infections such as chlamydia, gonorrhea, and trichomoniasis.
  • Changes in hormone levels during menopause.
  • Eczema (atopic dermatitis)
  • Psoriasis
  • Genital herpes
  • Pubic lice
  • Vulvar cancer

Vaginal itching can be annoying and uncomfortable. If you are experiencing persistent itching or any of the following symptoms, talk to your doctor right away:

  • Vaginal redness or swelling
  • Pain in the genital area
  • Blisters or sores on or around the vagina
  • Difficulty with urination
  • Abnormal vaginal discharge
  • Pain or discomfort during sexual intercourse

Most cases of vaginal itching can be treated with over-the-counter medication and self-care therapies. If itching is accompanied by other symptoms, or if it persists over time, it may signal an infection or medical condition. If you are seeking medical attention for itching, or any of the symptoms above, try to be as transparent and clear about your condition and your recent sexual history as possible. Because vaginal itching can have many causes, being specific about what you are experiencing can help your doctor provide appropriate treatment.
