What Causes The Clitoris To Itch
Contact dermatitis: Is a common cause. Have you used any products in the area that might cause irritation? I would recommend that you use only a soap for sensitive skin or no soap at all for a few days. If it doesn't resolve or worsens, it would be good to schedule an appointment with your gyn. HPV, herpes, eczema, and vulvar dystrophies are all possibilities that your gyn can rule out.
Aldara (imiquimod) cause oozing but painless sores on clitoral hood when cream rubs on it. The majora where wart (next to clit) only itches. Stop use or continue?
Continue: This shows it is working. Use a tiny amount. I tell people to make a pin-prick in the packet and make it last a few applications. If the reaction is too violent, use less frequently. 3 times a week, sometimes less, is usual dose.See 1 more doctor answer
I have itching above my clitoris. It gets bad sometimes. I noticed when I shave my skin starts to itch but im not sure why it itches above my clitoris?
Quit shaving: Contrary to current customs, shaving the genital areas is unhygienic and is the likely cause of itching. Let the hair be and wash the area as usual during showering/bathing. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. Get HPV vaccine.
I have a tear where my inner labia meet, up near my clitoris. It itches and is very painful. What should I do?
Go to the Doctor: There are plenty of good doctors there in Rochester. You have an injury. You do not treat this at home by yourself. You go get an examination.
I have been using vagasil in my clitoris since I had a tiny cut which is now healing I think. It burns when I wipe. Why? My butt also itches.
Wrong Rx, wrong place: Vagisil is not designed to treat clitoral cuts, but when spread over the perineum can irritate with itching in the area due to any bacterial content. This might be a good time to see a GYN MD at the right place for the right Rx for your problem.

I get burning sensation in my vagina, it started with my clitoris and it itches, I saw blood when washing there yesterday, what is wrong?
Without: And exam, it is impossible to tell
Had sex unprotected noticing that the soreness lingers for more than one day. Itches really bad around clitoris and is producing a mild fishy smell.
Need STD check: The itching and odor suggest presence of at least one vaginal infection--which may or may not be from an std. See your gyn / "std clinic" for exam, testing and treatment. Consider condom use in future.
Moist skin is peeling around my labia and clitoris. I barely touch down there and a layer comes off and the skin turns really red and itches a bit.
Vulvar irritation: First of all make sure that you are not using any harsh soaps or douche products in this area which can cause this type of reaction. If not, see a GYN MD to find out why this problem exists.
20 year old female with vaginal problems. Burned when urinating, now my clitoris itches and burns when scratched, now I can't hold my urine, odorous.?
Yeast? UTI? STD?: This sounds like a yeast infection. However, the "can't hold urine" symptom could be from a bacterial urinary tract infection. Depending on sexual risks, an STD like chlamydia or gonorrhea are possible. Whatever the cause, it should be easy to diagnose and treat. See a doctor. It's probably nothing dangerous, but you still should be examined in the next couple of days. Good luck!
