Im 19 year old, i haven\\\'t had sex since last month. i shave all the time but it never itch that way... i dont know what to last intercourse was unprotected, i hope it is any think serious. i was thinking about changing my under wears to see the change. and what\\\'s weird is that it does not itch that much in the day, maybe once in a while, but it itches more at night, just for some time. i don\\\'t know if the reason is because i just started to get sexually active, but the itches got to stop. any suggestion on the medicine or a doctor?

Welcome to ehealthforum.
The itching could signal infection. If it has become severe after your unprotected intercourse, then do not ignore it. Get examination done by a gynecologist (not GP) along with tests done on vaginal discharge to look for infection.
If infection gets detected, then both you and your partner should get treated simultaneously to prevent chances of re-infection. Avoid having intercourse while being on treatment. Change your shaving razor. Use loose cotton undergarments. Avoid vaginal douching.
Take care.
