Doctor insights on:
Why Is My Labia Itchy
Yes: Vaginal itching without discharge can indicate infections like yeast or stis like herpes. It can indicate an allergic reaction to household products like certain soaps and laundry detergents. There are also some skin conditions liked lichen sclerosis which can cause vaginal itching. Over-the-counter Prevaleaf Soothe is a good cream for home use. A diagnosis is key to long term relief.
TO BE SEEN: A doctor will need to see lesions and diagnose it. Few things could look like that some benign some not. Lichen comes to mind.

Many causes.: There are many different causes for vaginal itching. The most common are bacterial infection and yeast infection. To be certain you would need to see your doctor. You could also try an over the counter Yeast medication and see if this helps. If it does not improve then see your doctor. Hope this helps.
Allergy/trauma?: Determining the cause is an important clue to treatment. In addition, a true allergy to topical creams, lotions, lubricants or even latex may cause itching. Inadequate lubrication with excessive trauma may also cause shear injury with itching. Please also consider the possibility of stds. Discuss with your gynecologist.
See Your Doc: These could be many different things. You should see your doctor for evaluation to figure out what it was.
Sebaceous cysts: Most likely sebaceous cysts. They are benign and do not generally need to be treated.
Itchy patches on labia came and went w/ period. Patches are present now w/out period and do not itch.
Exam needed: It's possible that the location is coincidental and that a GP or dermatologist will be as appropriate as an OBGYN, but you can expect that any of them will be a good start at Dx and probably Tx. If they feel the need, they can refer you to the best specialist. It may be a minor thing, but if it is more than that, it will be great to catch it early. Best1

Hello I have a itchy pimple inside my inner labia and it has been there for a couple of days. I recently popped it. Should I be concerned?
Possibly: The most common cause of an itchy pimple would be an ingrown hair or a blocked gland, but it's also possible that you could have an infection or something more rare, like a precancerous spot. If it doesn't heal in the next few days, you should see your gynecologist or dermatologist to let a professional look at it.
Hi I have an itchy labia that is really bad at night, but there's no discharge of any sort! I applied fucicort but idk if its going to work?
Yeast?: The most common cause of vulvar itching is yeast infection. (Contrary to common belief, yeast usually doesn't cause much discharge.) Cortisone-type creams like Fucicort often make yeast worse, not better. Stop self treatment and see a doctor for diagnosis and treatment suggestions.
