Estrogen deficiency


estogen deficiency or decreased blood supply to the vagina are the most frequent causes of dryness, but chronic vaginal inflammation(allergic or infection) is a less likely cause.

Poor lubrication


After menopause or during breastfeeding the vagina senses the loss of Estrogen. The vaginal tissue becomes thin and dry. Vaginal estrogen can easily fix this. Some women experience poor lubrication. Replens is a nice over the counter product which can help with dryness. KY jelly or Astroglide can help with lubrication during sexual activity.

Possibly


there are several patient reports of vaginal dryness while taking Accutane, but none of the online medical resources I consulted specifically lists "vaginal dryness" as a side effect. However, since this drug can cause dry skin, dry lips, nasal dryness leading to nosebleeds, it seems likely that vaginal dryness is one of the drug's numerous side effects.

It is highly unlikely that Claritin would cause vaginal dryness. I could have said never but in medicine, nothing is never "never".
