Maybe: Itching may be caused by a variety of conditions. Some indicate an infection, some indicate an irritation or allergy, and some are just a result of stimulation of the nerves. Try to limit scented soaps; similarly, powders should not be used in the genital region. If the symptoms persist, see your gynecologist or dermatologist to rule out any infection.
