In brief: Depends on cause

Vaginal itching and redness are usually signs of a vaginal infection.
You need to know the cause to know the correct treatment (yeast, bacterial vaginosis, trichomonas). For this you will need to see your doctor. To prevent vaginal infection, always wipe front to back for personal hygiene, foods such as yogurt may help, if anal sex is practiced, do not insert from the anus to the vagina.
