I saw that this question was asked previously, but I am 27 and have noticed an increase in gray pubic hair. Now my vagina is very itchy where the gray hair is. I am also experiencing very itchy inner thigh along the crease of the vagina and the leg- I guess I would call it the bikini line?? Anyway, please help

Welcome to ehealthforum.
Gray pubic hair could result due to stress, poor dietary habits, heredity, decrease in melanocytes (cells producing melanin/pigment for hair color), use of chemicals, pollution etc. Consider visiting your doctor/dermatologist for further evaluation and assistance. Maintain healthy diet and lifestyle. Avoid smoking. Include multivitamin supplements. Avoid use of any harsh chemicals in the area.
Take care.
