Itchy vagina: Since you are not sexually active, the likely explanation is that something coming in contact with your genital region is irritating your vaginal tissue. This could be anything from the toilet paper you use, to dryer sheets residue on your panties, to chemicals in the pads or tampons that you use. You also can get things like yeast infections without being sexually active, so might need to see doc
