Variable: There are multiple causes for vulvar itching from eczema, skin irritant, yeast, etc. The tenderness is often self inflicted from scratching. Start by eliminating perfumes, soaps, deodorants, panty liners, etc. Check relationship to condom use for possible latex allergy. If no improvement, see Gyn for evaluation and a possible skin biopsy.
