Welcome to ehealthforum,
Vaginal itching and discomfort could be suggestive of possibility of infection, inflammation etc. Consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist for examination and vaginal swab/smear test done to look for the causative agent. Get started on treatment as indicated. If infective cause is detected, get your partner also treated simultaneously to prevent re-infection. Take adequate rest. Drink plenty of water. Maintain healthy diet and lifestyle. Avoid vaginal douching, use of harsh soap or perfumes in the area. Use loose cotton undergarments and avoid tight fitting clothes.
