Examine your soap: You need to check and make sure that your underwear is fully rinsed if machine washed as the material can retain dried soap powder or liquid which will reactivate when confronted by a moist vulva. Secondly, make sure that you use only Dove, Ivory or Caress soaps on the vulva as other soaps are too harsh and can cause itching.

Something else!: When you have a condition and a doc says all tests are normal it means really that I haven't thought hard enough about your condition. In the meantime read "Your Medical Mind" by Dr Jerome Groopman. A great read and it will give you some good insights into the way doctors think about patients. Good luck!
