Intermittent Vaginal Itching
I have symptoms of intermittent vaginal itching/burning. I saw a gyn and all cultures were neg. At appt. I was not as bad but it is back. What should I do?
See a derm: Since you saw your gyn and cultures were all negative, i would advise you see a dermatologist next. Even though it is vulvar skin, it is still skin. If a biopsy is needed, he/she can perform that as well. You need some type of topical treatment to alleviate the itch, as well as the underlying problem. ...Read more

Postmenopausal: For most women, their ovaries begin to decrease their function around age 35. This results in decreasing production of estradiol, progesterone and testosterone.

There isn't just one: It completely depends on what's causing the itch. Yeast (fungal) infections will cause vaginal itching and are usually treated with clotrimazole 1% cream which you can get in any drug store.
