Don't douche: First don't douche. The vagina does a great job cleaning itself and you don't need to douche. Douching will only make the healthy normal flora of the vagina off. Second the two most common causes of itching are contact dermatitis and yeast infection. If you are using any new products then stop doing so and see if this makes a difference.
