Irritant? other bug?: Sometimes vaginal itching and burning is due to major irritation from a chemical such as a soap, lotion or other product. And there can be other organisms including trichomonas among others. If all types of infection have been excluded, then brief treatment with a low dose topical steroid cream might be indicated. Continue to work with your doctor on this.
