In brief: Vaginal itchiness

Thank you for your question.
Vaginal itchiness and pimples after giving birth may be caused by many things. There are forms of inflammatory conditions of the skin that could cause a rash as well as responses to external/internal sources such as allergies or otherwise. Having an examination performed by a qualified medical practitioner would be helpful in diagnosis and treatment

In brief: Vaginal itching

Breastfeeding is associated with lower estrogen levels and this results in a less than healthy vagina and vulva.
Sometimes a vaginal cream is helpful. You need to be seen by your doctor.
