Hello,

Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am glad to help you out. Itchy vagina can be due to a number of causes. First of all it can be due to allergic reaction or contact dermatitis to your undergarments, sanitary napkins or tampons, soaps etc.

There is no change in the color or smell of discharge in this case. But if there is any change in the color and odor of discharge then the possibility of sexually transmitted diseases has to be evaluated.

I would suggest a gynecologist’s evaluation and a culture sensitivity of the vaginal discharge done.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
