I clean myself with soap and a shower puff and I have a really itchy vagina and have for three days, what is it? What can I do?

Allergic Reaction: It sounds like you are having an allergic reaction to the soap. First I would stop using anything to scrub down there since that could irritate it and second I would find a gentle soap that is hypoallergenic. A good soap is dove liquid soap. If things haven't changed then I would go see a doctor so they can make a proper diagnosis and further help you from there. Hope this helped :]. ...Read more
