See below: Vaginal or vulval itching is common and can be due to a number of conditions, ranging from a yeast infection(Candida) to a chemical sensitivity to creams, douches, condoms, detergents etc. If there is no evidence of rash or yeast infection OTC hydrocortisone cream or pramoxine anti-itch lotion may be helpful. **For more information on vaginal itching go to: http://bit.ly/1Blftl8
