Welcome to ehealthforum and thanks for writing

Vaginal itching is a symptom suggestive of infection (fungal infection being most common cause) or dryness. If the burning while urinating or incomplete evacuation is accompanied then it might be indicative of urinary tract infection.

Look out for development of other symptoms as change in the discharge,foul smell, rashes etc. then consider visiting a gynaecologist for evaluation.
Consider using OTC available Clotrimazole for application at night for 3 days and observe for changes.

Take care!
